Vacancy ID: 400/2022
Closing date: 11.12.2022

The Faculty of Chemistry and Earth Sciences seeks to fill the position of a Junior research group
leader for the CZS-junior research group for “Polymers in Energy Applications”

Full-time (40 hours per week) according to TV-L E 14 and is limited to 31.03.2029.

The CZS junior research group is funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation (www.carl-zeiss-stiftung.de), co-financed by the FSU Jena and the HZB. In addition to the position of junior research group leader, the junior research group is equipped with a total of seven doctoral positions (each 3 years, 0.67 full-time equivalents) and one technician position (1.0 full-time equivalent). In addition, the junior research group is supported by another technician (0.5 fte). Furthermore, very attractive funds for materials and consumables as well as travel are available, as well as initial equipment for the laboratories. The first-class equipment of the CEEC Jena can be fully used. A significant joint use of the newly acquired electron microscopic devices is also planned for the junior research group.

This junior research group will be very closely involved in the Joint Lab "Polymer-based Energy Storage Devices and Energy Conversion" (FSU Jena and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin) and will work closely with the research groups of the CEEC Jena.

The call is an "open topic" call and includes the following possible research topics:

Topic 1: AI as a platform for material development of polymer-based batteries
Topic 2: Polymer materials based on sustainable resources for energy storage and conversion devices
Topic 3: CO2 as a building block for new polymer materials in energy storage and conversion
Topic 4: Novel sustainable encapsulation materials for the next generation of photovoltaics

The junior research group to be established should conduct research in at least one of these areas.

Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena
Chemisch-Geowissenschaftliche Fakultät
Herr Prof. Dr. Ulrich S. Schubert
Philosophenweg 7a
07743 Jena
or by Email at: ceec-jena@uni-jena.de

Since all application documents will be duly destroyed after the recruitment process, we ask you to submit only copies of your documents.

Unsolicited applications

First of all you need to be sure of the subject and the topic you apply for. The Schubert group regularly posts job openings on the website. Other than checking the posts, we advise you to go through our website to check our research topics, the methods and instruments we use, as well as the cooperation we participate in and the papers published in the recent years.

Note that you do not have to meet a certain deadline for your application (unless stated otherwise). However you do need to send in your curriculum vitae together with a motivation letter to inform us about your background, motives, what your input will be to the group and what you want to pursue in your career. Please also include reference letters from your supervisor(s).

After we receive your application, your qualifications and skills will be evaluated by different members of the working group. You may be invited to visit our group to give a short presentation about your previous studies and to discuss about any job possibilities, as well as to be presented a clear picture of the opportunities we provide our members with, as per technology and science, and to be introduced to the group members.

For applicants from outside EU who need to have a valid visa to enter Germany, we also prepare an invitation letter to be used at the consulate to expedite the visa procedure.

Schubert group grants scholarships or positions on industrial projects to all PhD students. For this purpose, we are keeping close contact and taking part in cooperation with institutes and companies, which seek successful research studies in Organic and Macromolecular Chemistry and Nanoscience.
