The Ruhr Universität Bochum is one of Germany’s leading research universities. The University draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties. Host to 32,600 students and 4,700 staff, the Ruhr Universität is a vital institution in the Ruhr area, which has been selected as European Capital of Culture for the year 2010.
The upcoming Research Department “Plasmas with Complex Interactions” (PCI) focuses on top-level interdisciplinary plasma science projects in the fields of “Microplasmas”, “Cosmic Magnetic Fields” and “High Power Plasmas for the synthesis of nanostructured materials”. In this upcoming Research Department, scientists from physics and electrical engineering as well as from chemistry, mathematics and biology cooperate in international interdisciplinary teams.
The upcoming Research Department PCI seeks:
1 Post Doc
with outstanding research profiles. Candidates should have the capability to work in cooperation with at least two independent research groups. Suitable candidates will help to set up these new research fields and will be able to produce high-class results in a short period of time.
Suitable applicants may apply for the following research project:
Tera-Hertz-Technology: Implementation of a fs-laser system for absorption spectroscopy in microplasmas.
The position is currently based on a temporary contract until 31.12.2010 with a salary according to TV-L (max. E 13). The Ruhr University Bochum seeks to increase the participation of women in areas in which they are currently underrepresented and therefore explicitly urges women to apply. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude will be favored.
