Two PhD and two postdoc positions on Solar Nitrogen Fixation. The research consortium on Solar Nitrogen Fixation formed by the groups of V. Artero (CEA Grenoble, France), C. Bostedt and M. Chergui (EPF Lausanne, Switzerland), V. Krewald (TU Darmstadt, Germany) and S. Schneider (University of Göttingen, Germany) is inviting applications for: 1 Postdoc position in ultrafast spectroscopy of inorganic complexes (C. Bostedt, M. Chergui); 1 PhD position in computational inorganic chemistry and theoretical spectroscopy (V. Krewald); 1 PhD position in synthetic inorganic chemistry (S. Schneider); 1 Postdoc position in synthetic inorganic chemistry and electrochemistry (V. Artero). The aim of the consortium is to evaluate strategies for the development of molecular catalytic systems that use solar energy to convert nitrogen into ammonia, based on a mechanistic analysis of state-of-the-art N2 photoactivation complexes. Several approaches will be examined to design platforms that facilitate photodriven N2 splitting and proton coupled electron transfer for N–H bond formation. The successful candidates will work in close collaborative exchange between the involved groups with expertise in synthetic inorganic chemistry, electrochemistry, ultrafast spectroscopy and computational chemistry.

Guidelines for the submission of job advertisements

Job offerings on this website will be posted for free on these websites if they reach us via E-Mail. The job list Universities and Research Institutes is published weekly, usually on Fridays.

Please send the text of your job advertisement to karriere@gdch.de and insert it right into the Mail or attach it as an .rtf-file. Please do not send PDF files! In order to avoid further inquiries from our sides please do also indicate whether the publication should be online only or additionally in the “Nachrichten”, our monthly member’s magazine.

Deadline for the submission is Friday noon (12pm) or the last working day in the week (in case of public holidays).

To provide job seekers a quick overview, the first line of the advertisement should name the vacant position (e.g., doctoral or postdoctoral position, professorship, etc.) and the institute or university with the vacancy (e.g. "Doctoral position/professorship available at the Institute for xxx of yyy University" – please see sample texts). Please also mention the application deadline and give the address for applications at the end of the ad. Shorter adverts will thereby rank higher on the list than longer and more complex ones.

Should you additionally want to publish your announcement in “Nachrichten aus der Chemie”, you have two options:
1. The individual job advert with graphics, logos etc: Choosing this option you can decide on the layout and text length yourself. For examples for individual ads take a look at our online job market “Industry and public service”. Prices vary according to the ad’s size. more

2. A small ad in form of a continuous text without graphics, logos. etc: You can choose to publish the same announcement as from the list “Universities and Research Institutes” additionally as a small ad in the “Nachrichten”. For a small ad in print we charge EUR 150,- (+ tax). Please mention in your mail if you want an additional publication in the “Nachrichten”.
