In this position you are expected to write a dissertation in a stimulating environment using the university's infrastructure. You will hold your own lectures, tutor students and participate in administration. 50% of the working time is reserved for the thesis. In particular, you will do research in the field of chemistry and physics of ice - which might be in the field of astrochemistry (icy moons, ice giants, chemistry and evolution of molecules in the icy mantle of interstellar dust, spectroscopy of different ices and collaboration with space agencies to detect ices in space), basic physical chemistry (phase transformation between different forms of ice, search for new ice phases, anomalous properties of water in the supercooled liquid state), mineralogy/geochemistry (water in the interior of Earth and other objects), cloud chemistry (ice nucleation, cloud albedo in the context of global warming; chemistry on cirrus ice clouds or polar stratospheric clouds in the context of stratospheric ozone depletion). Methods involve high-pressure piston-cylinder studies, powder X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, thermal characterization (calorimetry, thermogravimetry), spectroscopy (Raman, far- and near-infrared), hyperquenching, vapor deposition as well as optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The techniques cover temperature ranges down to -269°C and pressures ranging from the high vacuum to high pressures (10^-7 mbar up to 2 GPa). In addition to the research itself you will support the matters of the research platform Materials- and Nanosciences (Advanced Materials), e.g., acquisition of research infrastructure, MatNano Award, research documentation, webpage.
