Location

Juelich, Germany

Introduction

The positions are at Forschungszentrum Jülich, one of the largest interdisciplinary research centers in Europe, focusing its expertise in research with neutrons and electrons at the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) and the Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons (ER-C).

Description of Institution

The JCNS develops and operates neutron scattering instruments for an international user community at its outstations at the world’s leading neutron sources. The Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy is a national user facility open to universities, research institutions and research laboratories in industry and operates some of the most powerful transmission electron microscopes.

Job description

To strengthen the cooperation between the JCNS and the ER-C and to make use of the synergy of neutron scattering and electron microscopy/spectroscopy, we offer three PhD positions in key research areas established in the two centers. The combined use of neutrons and electrons as complimentary probes is a key aspect of the three projects. All three PhD candidates will be jointly supervised by scientists from both institutions. The three research projects are:

Optimization of interfaces in all-solid-state Li batteries
(Energy; Reference D035-1/2017)

Atomically resolved magnetism in oxide heterostructures
(Magnetism; Reference D035-2/2017)

Structure and dynamics of microgel-nanoparticle composite systems
(Soft Matter; Reference D035-3/2017)

The successful candidates will be based at the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science and the Ernst Ruska-Centre, Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, Germany and will receive their Ph.D. from RWTH Aachen University.

Our offer:

  • The opportunity to carry out research in an international and multidisciplinary environment at leading research facilities.
  • Strong interaction with other researchers in Forschungszentrum Jülich, the surrounding universities and the respective user communities.
  • Possibilities to attend national and international conferences.
  • Salaries and social benefits in conformity with the provisions of the Collective Agreement for the Civil Service (TVöD).
    Forschungszentrum Jülich aims to employ more women in this area and therefore particularly welcomes applications from women. We also welcome applications from disabled persons.

Start: 1st of July 2017

Requested Profile

Your profile:

  • M. Sc. or Diploma in physics, chemistry, materials science, crystallography or a related field.
  • Experience in (neutron) scattering techniques is of advantage.
  • Skills in electron microscopy and /or electron spectroscopy are welcome.
  • A scientific background in the proposed research area is advantageous, but not mandatory.
  • Good oral and written command of the English language.
How to Apply

We invite interested candidates to send applications including a letter of motivation, CV, copies of exams, degrees and grades.

Please submit your application to quoting the reference number by 1st of April, 2017. You will receive a confirmation after this date.
