Chemist or Engineer materials science or similar (f/m/x)

The Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Stuttgart, with further research facilities in Cologne-Porz, Ulm, Oldenburg and Hamburg, conducts research with more than 200 employees in the field of efficient and resource-saving energy storage and next-generation energy conversion technologies. The spectrum of work ranges from theoretical studies and fundamental research-oriented laboratory work to the operation of pilot plants. The Electrochemical Energy Technology department also conducts research on new materials for electrochemical storage and converters, among other things.

In the AMEC group, we are intensively dedicated to the development and characterization of materials for alkaline fuel cells and electrolysers. The focus here is on increasing performance, extending service life and reducing costs. The focus of your research is on:

  • the development of gas diffusion electrodes and membrane electrode assemblies for alkaline membrane electrolysis with the aim of optimising power density and long-term stability.
  • the construction, operation and maintenance of a single cell test bench for water electrolysis.
  • the structural and chemical characterization of the membrane electrode assemblies.
  • the publication of your scientific results and their presentation at national and international conferences.
  • you have a completed, scientific university degree in engineering or natural sciences (e.g. chemistry or material sciences) or similar.
  • you have good knowledge of electrochemistry, materials science and analytics.
  • knowledge in the operation of electrochemical test bench is desirable.
  • you are already familiar with structural investigation methods such as scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and others.
  • an independent way of working, the ability to work in a team, experimental skills and a thirst for knowledge are required.
  • a very good way of expressing yourself in German and English as well as enthusiasm for renewable energies and helping to shape the energy supply of the future are completing your profile.

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x).Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
