In 2011 the Cluster of Excellence “Unifying Concepts in Catalysis” (UniCat) and the chemical company BASF SE founded the new joint lab BasCat, an academic institution including about 15 scientists (PhDs, Postdocs) at the Technische Universität Berlin. Heterogeneous catalysis is crucial for meeting the challenges of our future. The partners of BasCat are dedicated to improve our fundamental understanding of heterogenous catalysis, to transfer this understanding to a new rational design concept for industrially relevant catalysts, and to bring these catalysts to application in industry. The scope of the project is 12 months.
The scope of the project is the development of new materials (e.g. ceramics, metal oxides, carbon, silicon) for catalyst synthesis via atomic layer deposition (ALD) in a special set-up designed for ALD on powders. The characteristics of the new supporting materials (adsorption properties, electrical conductivity, morphology) need to meet exactly the requirements of the ALD processes. The work is part of several research projects in the field of heterogeneous catalysis carried out by multi-disciplinary teams.
Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) and PhD in chemistry with above-average success. You have expertise in inorganic chemistry and materials science and an in-depth understanding of heterogeneous catalysis. You have practical experience in synthesis and characterization of inorganic solid materials.
You have strong communication skills and the ability to develop innovative solutions by working in multi-disciplinary teams. You are able to scientifically lead coworkers in your working field. Fluency in German and English is considered as a plus.
