Your tasks

You enjoy planning and running scientific experiments? You are eager to discover and to explore? We are looking for a highly skilled and enthusiastic young scientist with a strong background in physical chemistry.

The research involves kinetic or thermodynamic experiments and spectroscopic work at the SLS synchrotron facility of the Paul Scherrer Institute.

The project is motivated by the chemistry in earth’s atmosphere and aims at developing a detailed understanding of the interfacial region of ice and its impact on multiphase chemistry.

We will investigate the photochemistry and acid-base chemistry of nitrogen oxides. This work tackles the fundamental question of how the structural arrangement of water molecules at the interface promotes chemistry and of the role of hydrogen-bonds in general.

Your profile

  • Experience and strong interest in experimental work
  • Basic knowledge in programming or strong interest to learn
  • Fluent in English, interest to learn German
  • Technical talent, analytical thinking skills, problem solving genius
  • Nice to have

    A strong interest in or even first experience in any of the following topics would be beneficial :

  • Basic knowledge in X-Ray spectroscopy (XPS, NEXAFS)
  • Basic knowledge in mass spectrometry
  • First experience with flow-reactors
  • Writing and graphic designer skills
  • We offer

    Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration. You will profit from a systematic training on the job, in addition to personal development possibilities and our pronounced vocational training culture.
