Postdoctorial Scientists (PhD in Chemistry, Materials Science, or related), Germany


The Institute for Solar Fuels at HZB develops new materials and devices for the photoelectrochemical conversion of cost-effective and abundant resources, such as water to chemical fuels. We are looking for a candidate to strengthen an EU project on the optimization and scale-up of promising photoelectrode materials such as BiVO4.


  • Development of large-area (up to 50 cm2) BiVO4-based photoelectrodes and their modification with electrocatalysts for photoelectrochemical water splitting
  • Application of advanced photoelectrochemical characterization techniques for identifying and solving performance bottlenecks
  • Publication of results


  • Completed PhD in chemistry
  • Solid knowledge of photoelectrochemistry and electrocatalysis
  • Extensive experience in chemical synthesis of thin metal oxide semiconductors, surface modification of semiconductor surfaces with electrocatalysts, and time-resolved spectro-electrochemical studies on these surfaces
  • Team player with excellent oral and written communication skills (in English)
  • Proven academic track record

What we offer

Fixed term contract for 10 months. The employment contract is based on contracts for the German civil service (TVöD-Bund).
