The Fritz Haber Institute (FHI) in Berlin-Dahlem is one of the oldest and most renowned research institutes within the Max Planck Society (MPG), Germany's most successful scientific organization. At the FHI, researchers from all over the world are engaged in basic research in the field of physical chemistry at interfaces and surfaces, catalysis research and molecular physics.
We have an immediate opening for a TEM Research Scientist to support users from the institute with routine imaging of samples and to perform in situ/operando studies looking at the behavior of heterogeneous catalysts under reaction conditions on the FEI/TFS Titan TEM at the Electron Microscopy Facility of the FHI. The successful applicant will be responsible for day-to-day running and maintenance of the FEI/TFS Titan TEM and its associated accessories (including electron camera, EDX spectrometer, EELS spectrometer, gas-manifold/delivery system and online mass spectrometer).
The successful applicant will also collaborate with FHI scientists in research projects involving in situ/operando TEM studies of heterogeneous catalysts.
The scientist position is initially limited to two years with the option for an extension.
Applications for this position are only accepted via our online application portal. Send your application with the following documents:
· curriculum vitae
· a list of publications
· names and email addresses of three references
Applications will be accepted from immediately until the position is filled. We thank all applicants for their interest; however, only those individuals selected for an interview will be contacted.
