Ph. D. position in ultrafast spectroscopy/microspectroscopy

10.10.2019, Wissenschaftliches Personal

The group for “Dynamic Spectroscopies“ at the TUM Department of Chemistry offers a Ph.D. student position in “Multi-Photon Absorption and Dynamics in Crystalline Coordination Networks”. Funding is secured for three years, while the initial appointment will be for one year with the possibility of extension. Salary is in accordance with the German State Regulated Public Salary Scale (TV-L E13 2/3). Financing is available starting February 1st 2020.

Tasks The successful candidate is expected to design and construct a novel experimental layout for two-photon excitation spectroscopy employing a femtosecond oscillator. Materials and supervision will be provided. The main aims of the project are to (i) measure two-photon absorption properties of organic molecules (ii) characterize two-photon properties of Crystalline Coordination Networks (CCNs) including the molecules described in the previous point (iii) create functional images of the CCNs by two-photon excitation spectroscopy. These findings will lead to new design suggestions for collaboration partners in inorganic chemistry.

Qualifications A successful applicant will bring • An excellent Master’s degree or equivalent in chemistry or physics or related disciplines • The ability to communicate clearly with co-workers in adjacent fields such as inorganic synthetic chemistry • Strong analytical and programming skills to be applied in data analysis and model building/testing • A solid background in ultrafast optics, optics, physical chemistry, spectroscopy and microscopy • Fluency in spoken and written English • The ability to work both independently and as part of a motivated team of researchers • An interest in teaching, as required for every PhD student in the research group • The general curiosity needed to work on an interdisciplinary project

We offer Experienced supervisors and an inspiring research environment with connections to the excellence cluster e-conversion (https://www.e-conversion.de/), the catalysis research center (https://www.crc.tum.de/home/) and the International Max Planck Research School of Advanced Photon Science (http://www2.mpq.mpg.de/APS/). More information on our group can be found under https://www.department.ch.tum.de/dynspec/.

Applications Please send a cover letter explaining how this position fits with your experiences and goals, your curriculum vitae, a list of two to three potential referees and copies of key documents (transcripts, degree certificates) in a single PDF Professor Jürgen Hauer (juergen.hauer@tu.de) by December 1st 2019.

As part of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments, TUM has been pursuing the strategic goal of substantially increasing the diversity of its staff. As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, TUM explicitly encourages nominations of and applications from women as well as from 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.
