For the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry I we are looking for a/an

PhD Candidate as Academic Employee (m/f/d) Synthesis and Spectroscopy


We seek to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and particulary encourage qualified female scientists to apply for this position.

Severely disabled applicants with equal aptitude will be given preferential consideration.

Long range transmembrane electron transfer via molecular wires

In the context of light energy conversion and artificial photosynthesis, this project will generate optimal local reaction conditions for light-driven reduction (e.g. CO2 and H2 evolution) coupled to light driven oxidation (e.g. of water) using co-polymeric membranes and transmembrane molecular wires.

Your profile:

    The successful applicant will have strong background in synthetic chemistry and a high interest to learn spectroscopy techniques. He or she should have experience in working under inert conditions. He/she should be highly motivated to work and learn in an interdisciplinary, international team and should have excellent written and oral communications skills in English. Good command of German is desirable.

Your responsibilities:

    In the project you will synthesize molecular wires for integration into co-polymeric membranes. The wires are oligoaromatic rigid molecules comprised of photosensitizer (light absorber), bridge, polar anchoring groups, and molecular donor and acceptor units. Incorporation into co-polymeric membranes will be performed and (light-driven) electron transfer will be characterized using steady state and time resolved spectroscopy.

Seize the opportunity and join us in shaping the future of the University!

Hiring is done by the Central University Administration.
