Institution: Cluster of Excellence „Advanced Imaging of Matter“ (photon and nanosciences)
Salary level: EGR. 13 TV-L
Start date: 01.02.2024, fixed until 31.12.2026 (This is a fixed-term contract in accordance with Section 2 of the academic fixed-term labor contract act [Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, WissZeitVG]).
Application deadline: 2023-12-05
Scope of work: part-time
Weekly hours: 75 % of standard work hours per week
Duties include academic services in the project named above. Research associates may also pursue independent research and further academic qualifications.
The successful candidate will develop theoretical ab initio models to devise novel x-ray analytical techniques for studying dynamics in energy-storage materials. In particular, they will develop the theoretical framework for chemically sensitive x-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS). This technique has potential to be sensitive to uncover time scales, binding mechanism and characteristics of motion of cations in materials exhibiting enhanced energy storage properties, such as pseudocapacitance. They will employ state-of-the-art electronic structure and molecular dynamics simulations to describe the electrochemical processes, electronic structure changes and cation transport dynamics, and subsequently predict expected measurement signals. This study will lay the foundation for novel x-ray techniques at next-generation storage-ring x-ray sources and x-ray-free electron lasers.
