Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Faculty II - Institute of Chemistry / Stranski Laboratory for Physical and Theoretical Chemistry

Research Assistant (PostDoc) - salary grade E13 or E14 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

under the reserve that funds are granted - part-time employment may be possible

The classification of the position acc. to salary group E14 is envisaged under the condition that the duties ínclude procuring external project funding and project leadership with personnel management.

Working field:

Expert work in the BMBF project MOSAEK “Modular Sample Environment for Observing Changing Non-Equilibrium Soft Matter Samples and Doing High-Precision SANS Measurements”
Building-up a modular sample environment for investigating chemically reacting colloidal or polymeric systems by means of small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). Within this work the individual components have to be developed and the whole reactor system has to be optimised for different types of reactions. Corresponding model reactions from different fields of colloid and polymer science will be done with this reactor system and the obtained scattering data will become analysed. The aim is a deepened understanding of the structural progression during the formation of more complex colloidal systems. The work will be conducted at the Institute Max von Laue – Paul Langevin (ILL), a world-wide leading international research institute in Grenoble, France, and correspondingly the workplace will be there.


  • Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) successfully completed a PhD in Chemistry or Physics (or a related subject).
  • Comprehensive knowledge in the fields of colloid and polymer chemistry are required, as well as in the application of scattering methods for the characterisation of such systems. This also includes competences in the fields of physical and analytical chemistry, the physics of materials and especially a thorough knowledge in characterising nanostructured systems in general.
  • Very good knowledge of English required; good German and/or French language skills are an advantage.
