A Center for Electrochemical Sciences(CES) has been founded by Ruhr-Universität Bochum,Germany and the Max-Planck Institut für Eisenforschung, Düsseldorf, Germany. It is financially supported by the state of NRW in the framework of the HighTech.NRW competition and ThyssenKrupp Steel. CES is regarded as a Center of Excellence with the task to ensure international competitive research in modern and future electrochemistry at a high standard.
CES invites applications for the positions of
4 Junior Group Leaders
The junior group leader is expected to be an outstanding researcher with a doctoral degree in electrochemistry or related field. Ideally, the candidate should have undertaken initial steps in
independent research during a postdoc stay. The competence should be clear from publications in established international scientific journals. The successful candidate will be responsible for a research group working on one or more of the following topics electrocatalysis, corrosion, electrochemical surface modification, electroanalytics, bioelectrochemistry,
photoelectrochemistry, photocatalysis and/or theoretical electrochemistry.
The position is initially funded for a period of 3 years. After positive evaluation the contract may be renewed for further 3 years. The salary is aligned to TV-L. One or two more researcher positions(PhD or Postdoc, depending on the qualification of the successful candidate), start-up investments and consumables will be provided to the Junior Group.
Ruhr-Universität Bochum is committed to promoting the careers of women and therefore actively welcomes applications from female candidates.
As an equal opportunities employer, we also encourage applications from suitably qualified disabled candidates and other groups.
Applications including a project outline, CV, diplomas, and a list of publications are to be submitted not later than the 7st of November 2009 to
Dr. Sabine Seisel, Ruhr-Universität, Bochum, Zentrum für Elektrochemie, Analytische Chemie Elektroanalytik & Sensorik, Universitätsstr. 150 NC04/123, D-44780 Bochum.
Application by e-mail should be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org
