Research and Development


The Institute is a centre of fundamental research in physical chemistry, electrochemistry and chemical physics. The research work is characterized by many cross-links both within the Institute and also with other institutions in Europe, the U.S.A., Japan and other parts of the world. Much of the scientific work is concerned with fundamental research, but several groups, in particular in catalysis and electrochemistry, are also making contributions in more applied aspects. Besides the research activities the Institute is strongly involved in training of both undergraduate and graduate students, supervising their diploma and Ph.D. theses, and in teaching at universities.

In the Institute work at present about 165 full-time employees and approximately 45 graduate students. Roughly 70 per cent of the personnel are engaged in research, the remaining staff provides technical and administrative services.

Members of the Institute publish each year approximately 250 research papers, for the most part in impacted international journals (in 2017: 159 articles in journals with an average impact factor of 4.84), several books or chapters in monographs, and a number of communications in proceedings of scientific meetings.

Job description:

The open positions are part of the research team at the newly established Department of Nanocatalysis, which is focusing on the catalytic properties of supported sub-nanometer size clusters. The new team members will be primarily involved in in situ / operando characterization of cluster-based nanocatalyst, in the design and operation of custom equipment, in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data, and publication of results. We welcome candidates who have extended experience with the characterization of model or industrial catalyst under reaction conditions using synchrotron-based techniques.

Geographic mobility:



General requirements:

  • PhD or equivalent degree in chemistry, physics, chemical engineering or a related field (excepted completion of PhD in 2019 is sufficient);
  • good written and oral communication skills in English.

Specific requirements:

  • experienced with X-ray techniques
  • experienced with the design and operation of custom equipment to test solid catalysts in gas phase reactions;
  • skilled in data acquisition, data analysis and interpretation;
  • experience with in situ / operando characterization of nanoparticulate catalysts using advanced synchrotron-based X-ray techniques, including X-ray scattering or X-ray absorption spectroscopy a plus;
  • experience with surface-sensitive X-ray based characterization techniques or infrared spectroscopy a plus;
  • a good scientific publication record;
  • at least 1 year of research experience.
