Technische Universität Dresden - Faculty of Chemistry and Food Chemistry, Chair of Inorganic Chemistry II
The TU Dresden is one of eleven German universities that were identified as an “excellence university”. TUD has about 36.500 students and almost 5319 employees, 507 professors among them, and, thus, is the largest university in Saxony, today.
Having been committed to sciences and the engineering before the reunification of Germany, TU Dresden now is a multi-discipline university, also offering humanities and social sciences as well as medicine.
Research Associate / Postdoc
(subject to personal qualifications, employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The position is starting as soon as possible, for a period of 2 years. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). The regular place of work is the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden.
Synthesis of compounds with an extraordinarily high electron content that have not yet been investigated in detail, in particular highly reduced cyano-complexes with transition metals in d10 configuration and salts with unusual anions such as CCN3-; development and optimisation of methods for the preparation of single-phase samples and single crystals of these highly air- and moisture-sensitive compounds; comprehensive experimental characterisation of the newly discovered substances (diffraction, spectroscopy, microscopy, electrical and magnetic properties) as well as quantum chemical bonding analysis in collaboration with other researchers.
a very good university degree (M.Sc., Dipl.) and a doctoral degree (not older than 3 years) in Chemistry; ideally, experience in the field of Inorganic Solid State and Structural Chemistry and in working with air- and moisture-sensitive compounds; good command of English and willingness to present research results at international conferences; ability to work in an interdisciplinary and international team.
What we offer:
opportunity to conducting research in an existing team within a DFG-funded project; an attractive combination of a university and a non-university research institution; diverse networking and further education opportunities; individual mentoring and a pleasant working atmosphere.
