The International Research School of Battery Chemistry, Characterization, Analysis, Recycling and Application (BACCARA) funded by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and established at the University of Münster, Germany, by the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy and the MEET Battery Research Center is seeking to fill
Wissenschaftliche/-r Mitarbeiter/-inSalary level TV-L E13 (67 %)
The part-time positions (67% of the regular working time, currently equating to 26 hours 41 minutes per week) are funded for three years. The goal is to obtain a doctoral degree and the anticipated starting date is 1 October 2021.
The Research School "BACCARA" offers a modern, comprehensive and interdisciplinary training program that enables its doctoral students to successfully carry out their research work and foster their personal development, thus preparing them for future successful careers in industry, administration/politics, and academia.
Several scientists of the University of Münster have teamed up in order to focus their complementary expertise on battery chemistry, characterization, analysis, recycling and the applications for batteries along the battery value chain. The interdisciplinary research activities are centred on the topics: theory and modelling, material synthesis, catalysis, analysis and characterization, battery cell, recycling, sustainability and life cycle analysis.
We will provide a structured 3-year, cutting-edge PhD training program in and beyond the fields mentioned above. PhD students are encouraged to choose their own field of research in close cooperation with their supervisor. In addition, courses in electrochemistry and a program of workshops, lectures and conferences, partly be organized by the students themselves, will be part of the training.
We are looking for highly motivated and talented PhD students from different disciplines. Excellent command of spoken and written English, general communication skills and team spirit are essential. We are offering a competitive, interdisciplinary environment with a track record of intense collaboration. In addition to the individual training-through-research, our program includes further opportunities such as an introduction to electrochemistry and battery technology, retreats, international conferences and symposia.Fields of activity
