Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty II

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin, Fac­ulty II - Math­em­at­ics and Nat­ural Sci­ences, Insti­tute of Chem­istry invites applic­a­tions for a pos­i­tion of a

Junior Pro­fess­or­ship - salary grade W1

with W2 ten­ure-track option in the field of "Chem­ical Cata­lysis".

With this pos­i­tion, TU Ber­lin espe­cially addresses and aims to pro­mote young sci­ent­ists. For that reason, this pos­i­tion will be a tem­por­ary W1 junior pro­fess­or­ship with an eval­u­ation after 3 years. In case of a second suc­cess­ful ten­ure-track eval­u­ation after 6 years, this pos­i­tion will lead to a per­man­ent W2 pro­fess­or­ship.

Work­ing field:

The pos­i­tion requires research and teach­ing in the area of chem­ical engin­eer­ing at the Insti­tute of Chem­istry. Teach­ing will be required in the study pro­grams of Chem­istry and Chem­ical Engin­eer­ing and in the ser­vice teach­ing of chem­istry for other pro­grams. The research focus of the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate should address cur­rent ques­tions in the field of (elec­tro)chem­ical engin­eer­ing. Can­did­ates with exper­i­mental (spec­tro­scopic) or the­or­et­ical con­tri­bu­tions to under­stand­ing cata­lytic pro­cesses on hard solid sur­faces will be given pref­er­ence. The area of research expert­ise should allow co-oper­a­tions with the research groups of the Cluster of Excel­lence “Uni­cat”. In case of TU Ber­lin’s suc­cess­ful applic­a­tion regard­ing the Cluster of Excel­lence “Uni­fy­ing Sys­tems in Cata­lysis (UniSy­sCat)” con­tri­bu­tion to this pro­ject is expec­ted.


Can­did­ates must ful­fill the require­ments for appoint­ment at the junior pro­fessor level in com­pli­ance with § 102a Ber­lHG (Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act). These include a com­pleted degree in Chem­istry, Chem­ical Engin­eer­ing, Phys­ics or a com­par­able sub­ject, a par­tic­u­lar qual­i­fic­a­tion for aca­demic work usu­ally attested by the excel­lent qual­ity of a doc­tor­ate, and ped­ago­gical aptitude, demon­strated by teach­ing exper­i­ence and visu­al­ized in a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for fur­ther inform­a­tion see TUB Web­site, quick access 144242).
We are look­ing for can­did­ates with an inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible pro­file in the area of cata­lytic activ­a­tion of small molecules on hard solid sur­faces, who will rep­res­ent this area in research and teach­ing. Com­pet­ence either in the­or­et­ical mod­el­ing of cata­lytic react­iv­ity at the quantum-chem­ical, stochastic and/or micro kin­etic level or in exper­i­mental in-situ spec­tro­scopic char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of cata­lysts, cata­lytic cen­ters or react­ive inter­me­di­ates includ­ing the activ­a­tion driven by light or elec­tric fields con­sti­tutes a cent­ral qual­i­fic­a­tion. Will­ing­ness and abil­ity for inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research, e.g. between the­ory and exper­i­ment, as well as trend-set­ting research res­ults pub­lished in inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible peer-reviewed journ­als are expec­ted.
Applic­ants must show teach­ing exper­i­ences at uni­versity level and be will­ing to teach in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Addi­tional exper­i­ence in advising and super­vising Bach­elor, Mas­ter and doc­toral stu­dents is expec­ted. Fur­ther­more, exper­i­ence in aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion is desir­able.

How to ap­ply:

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is determ­ined to increase the pro­por­tion of women in research and teach­ing and there­fore strongly encour­ages qual­i­fied female research­ers to apply. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored. The TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to the goals of equal oppor­tun­it­ies. In the con­text of the stra­tegic inter­na­tion­al­iz­a­tion pro­cess, TU Ber­lin assumes the recruited aca­demic teach­ing staff's abil­ity to con­duct classes in Eng­lish.
Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is a cer­ti­fied fam­ily-friendly higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tion, and our Dual Career Ser­vice offers assist­ance to you and your fam­ily when relo­cat­ing to Ber­lin.
