Postdoc – 2019 Position in Aarhus University, Denmark
Designation/Position- Postdoc – 2019 Position
Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), Aarhus University, Denmark invites application for position from eligible and interested candidates
About- The Lauritsen group is located at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University. The iNANO Center (www.inano.au.dk) is a major research and education center hosting more than 40 skilled senior scientists, 100 post docs and 120 PhD students. The center combines expertise and faculty from physics, chemistry, molecular biology and medicine to carry out world-class interdisciplinary research.
iNANO offers a dynamic, interdisciplinary research environment with many industrial, national and international collaborators. The project will also be supported by the newly established Integrated Materials Research Center (iMAT) at Aarhus University.
Location- Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), Aarhus University, Denmark
Research group is looking for a highly motivated candidate with documented experience in experimental surface science studies, UHV-based scanning tunneling microscopy or extensive experience in surface characterization within electrochemistry.
You should have a recent PhD degree in experimental physics, chemistry or materials science or equivalent disciplines with a successful and documented scientific record.
Since the project involves design and installation of a new electrochemistry cell on a UHV-STM and a synchrotron beamline, it will be an strong advantage if you can document technical skills within handling of ultra-high vacuum (UHV) equipment, development work at a synchrotron beamline, or equivalent.
Applicants are invited to submit their application for a postdoctoral position in surface science and electrochemistry at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at University of Aarhus, Denmark.
The position is available from January 2019 and for period of 24 months. Candidates should be able to start 1/3-2019 the latest.
The work will focus on research in fundamental experimental characterization of electrochemically relevant surfaces and development of new equipment for such research. The successful candidate will be joining a research project seeking to understand the fundamental atomic-scale properties of electrochemically active surfaces, incl. battery materials, electrocatalysts for water splitting and CO2 conversion and storage systems. The project is based at the research group of Jeppe V. Lauritsen at iNANO, but it will also involve collaboration with several groups at iNANO, Dept. of Chemistry and Dept. of Engineering at AU and international collaboration partners.

How to Apply-
Shortlisting is used. This means that after the deadline for applications and with the assistance from the assessment committee chairman, and the appointment committee if necessary, the head of department selects the candidates to be evaluated. All applicants will be notified whether or not their applications have been sent to an expert assessment committee for evaluation. The selected applicants will be informed about the composition of the committee, and each applicant is given the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that concerns him/her self. Once the recruitment process is completed a final letter of rejection is sent to the deselected applicants, including the main considerations emphasized during the selection process.
The application must be in English and include a curriculum vitae, degree certificate, a complete list of publications, a statement of future research plans and information about research activities, teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any). Guidelines for applicants can be found here.
