Scientist (f/m/d)

Part-time 50%

Job description

As part of a DFG-project you will characterize the ionic transport properties of novel high-entropy materials. These will potentially be applied as electrode/electrolyte materials for fuel cells. The main aim of this research project is to develop and characterize ionically conductive materials. In the following step the oxygen-ion conductors would be integrated in half and full cells. Thereby, the project combines fundamental understanding of the novel materials and application oriented research. Publishing your results is also a part of your responsibilities.
In addition to the research activity, there is a possibility for acquiring a doctoral degree.

Personal qualification

You are a university graduate (Diplom/Master) with a major in Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry or a comparable qualification with above average grades.
You have experience with synthesis and manufacturing of ceramic materials. Experience with electrochemical characterization methods, e.g. impedance spectroscopy and with the deposition of thin films is advantageous.
Strong communication skills, a cooperative personality, initiative, resilience and a goal-oriented working strategy are desired.
