We test novel catalysts for sustainable energy conversion processes such as polymer electrolyte fuel cells or electrolyzers, H2O2 production, or electrochemical CO2 reduction. To do so, the stability of newly developed catalysts is of pressing concern. You will continue our research line around stability assessment of novel catalysts by electrochemical flow cell measurements that will be coupled to on-line analytics. Specifically, an in-house designed flow cell is coupled to inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and the stability against dissolution will be assessed. This will be done with collaboration partners around the world. The workflow spans from physical chemistry to material science and engineering. We are looking for an individual with a high willingness to take initiative and motivation to start her/his career in the group “sustainable energy materials” at TUM.
The Technical University of Munich is located in the south of Germany and is one of the most renowned universities of technology worldwide with top rankings in research and teaching. Our group “Sustainable Energy Materials” concentrates on the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts and the understanding of structure-performance indicators in electrocatalytic reactions. Our catalysts are the heart of sustainable energy conversion processes such as in hydrogen fuel cells or electrolyzers. Utilizing innovative, automated characterization techniques we evaluate the catalyst’s performance. This enables the examination of numerous materials in a short time and thus accelerates the discovery of new materials. The corresponding reaction mechanisms that are essential for understanding the underlying processes are examined. We work closely with various institutions and companies from all over the world, especially the USA, the UK, and Germany.
- Master in chemistry, material science, engineering, physics, or a closely-related field
- You have experience/interest in electrochemistry (electrocatalysis, plating, corrosion…)
- Knowledge/Interest in method development
- Knowledge/Interest in analytical chemistry
- Excellent English speaking and writing abilities, no German language skills required
- Interdisciplinary team working skills with high independency and outstanding academic performance
- Hands-on mentality
Applicants should submit their CV including A-level, bachelor and master degrees, and a motivation letter detailing their interest and suitability for the position.

TUM offers a wide range of inspiring and challenging Ph.D. programs, which will supplement the research training with outstanding opportunities for career development, continued education, and life-long learning. We offer excellent working conditions in a young and interdisciplinary team. In an open environment, you will have the freedom to develop and realize your own ideas. Situated on the Bavarian forest gate, Straubing, the old ducal town on the Danube, is the intellectual hub for renewable materials and technologies for sustainability in Germany. Straubing, although small in the number of inhabitants, offers everything you need for a successful Ph.D., including a diverse selection of taverns, cafés, and beer gardens. TUM Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability offers scientific and academic excellence in a student-friendly and fresh environment. The successful applicant will hold a 3-year contract. We offer a competitive salary and benefits depending on work experience and seniority in accordance with the public service wage agreement of the Free State of Bavaria - TV-L E13 (67%). As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, TUM explicitly encourages applications from women and all others who would bring additional diversity dimensions to the university’s research and teaching strategies. Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the same qualifications
We are looking forward to receiving your application via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.The position will be open until an appropriate candidate is found.
