Postdoctoral position: Chemistry/Chemical Engineering 3797 views

The Fritz Haber Institute (FHI), one of the oldest and most renowned research institutes within the Max Planck Society (MPG). A Postdoctoral position for the study of catalysis with metals related to energy conversion in the Department of Inorganic Chemistry. The department is dealing with fundamental research to understand the basic physical and chemical principles of existing catalytic processes and to discover new ways of transforming energy and producing chemicals and alternative synthetic fuels sustainably and to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide.

Tasks and duties:
  • The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in the field of heterogeneous catalysis with the main focus on catalyst characterization by means of temperature program methods (mainly TPD, TDS).
    Work will involve the collaboration with colleagues from spectroscopy and microscopy fields.
  • The general topic of interest concerns hydrocarbons activation on a metal catalyst.


  • Applicant must be highly motivated scientist with social skills, able lead an own project and simultaneously be part of a team.
  • Candidate should have a strong background in heterogeneous catalysis as well as in inorganic synthesis.
  • Applicant must hold PhD in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering.

Duration: 2 years with the possibility of extension
