Postdoc position in materials for energy applications


We offer a two-years postdoc position to a skilled and well-qualified candidate. To be eligible to this position, you have a background in experimental materials science, or another relevant discipline. Your PhD degree should not be older than 3 years.

Who are you
As a person, you are responsible, independent, and service-oriented. Good communication skills, both oral and written and definitely in English, are required. You also have an interest in teaching out, and already have well-developed analytical and experimental skills.

Major responsibilities
As a postdoctoral fellow, you will have the possibility to run an own research program on 'materials for energy applications', where the use of a Raman spectrometer is central. You are expected to be a mature person able to support the other research members in their research activities and in the development of their experimental skills. In practice, you are expected to contribute with a sound scientific program and to have an interactional attitude towards the other group members.

Although your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group, the position also includes teaching on undergraduate and master's levels as well as supervising master's and/or PhD students to a certain extent. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as with the industry and/or the public sector.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1 + 1).

A PhD degree in materials science, physics, chemistry, or another relevant discipline. The degree should generally not be older than three years. You are expected to be somewhat accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education.
