The Fritz Haber Institute (FHI) in Berlin-Dahlem is a renowned institutions within the Max Planck Society (MPG), Germany's premier organization for basic research. At the FHI, scientists from all over the world are engaged in fundamental studies in the field of physical chemistry with focus on interfaces, surfaces, catalysis research and molecular physics.
The Liquid-Vapor Interfaces Group in the Department of Inorganic Chemistry has an open
Liquid-vapor interfaces govern many important processes in the atmosphere and environment and are still much less understood than solid interfaces. Our group focuses on the role of surfactants in heterogeneous chemical reactions, in particular on how they interact with solvated species in the solution and influence transport across the interface. The experiments employ state-of-the-art photoelectron spectroscopy, both in the laboratory and at synchrotron sources, as well as infrared spectroscopy, to obtain a detailed understanding of the liquid-vapor interface on the molecular scale. The successful candidate will be part of our small team of postdoctoral scholars and engineers and work in close collaboration with our partner groups here at the FHI, at BESSY and at other synchrotron sources in Europe.
The PhD Position is embedded in the newly established International Max Planck Research School for Elementary Processes in Physical Chemistry (IMPRS-EPPC). The IMPRS-EPPC is a structured graduate program for ~30 excellent PhD students at the FHI and universities in Berlin and Potsdam, who work in a variety of areas within physical chemistry. The IMPRS provides a comprehensive curriculum and many opportunities for intellectual exchange with fellow students and senior scientists.
