Postdoctoral Researcher (m/f/d), in Stimulus-Responsive Hybrid Materials

Friedrich Schiller University is a traditional university with a strong research profile rooted in the heart of Germany. As a university covering all disciplines, it offers a wide range of subjects. Its research is focused on the areas Light-Life-Liberty. It is closely networked with non-research institutions, research companies and renowned cultural institutions. With around 18,000 students and more than 8,600 employees, the university plays a major role in shaping Jena's character as a cosmopolitan and future-oriented city.

The Otto Schott Institute of Materials Research seeks to fill the position of a

Postdoctoral Researcher (m/f/d),

in Stimulus-Responsive Hybrid Materials


commencing on or before 1 May 2021.


Funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation within its Breakthrough Program, the Friedrich Schiller University Jena has established a coordinated research centre on stimulus-responsive hybrid materials. Understanding the mechanism of stimulus response in inorganic and hybrid material systems (functional bioactive glasses, organic/inorganic hybrids, mesoporous materials) through experimental data is of key importance in this project. As our new postdoctoral researcher, you will develop inorganic/organic hybrid biomaterials, e.g. for wound healing applications, showing single or multiple stimulus (e.g. pH, light, temperature) response. This project offers an excellent collaborative environment of materials scientists, solid-state physicists, chemists and experts in computational materials simulation.


Your responsibilities:

  • Conduct interdisciplinary research within the context of stimuli-responsive hybrids biomaterials
  • Planning, preparation, implementation, analysis and research data management of the project
  • Supervise and support researchers at M.Sc. or B.Sc. level
  • Publication and dissemination of research results


Your profile

  • An excellent Ph.D. degree in chemistry, materials science or related subjects
  • Relevant experience in the areas of hybrid materials synthesis, sol-gel chemistry or glasses
  • Experience in NMR or Raman spectroscopy are highly desirable
  • We expect excellent English communication skills (both written and spoken)


We offer:

  • Opportunities to participate in diverse experimental and theoretical research projects with a strongly interdisciplinary nature
  • Access to state-of-the-art analytical equipment and infrastructure, contacts to international collaboration partners
  • Remuneration based on the provisions of the Collective Agreement for the Public Sector of the Federal States (TV-L) at salary scale 13 - depending on the candidate's personal qualifications-, including a special annual payment in accordance with the collective agreement


The position is limited until 31 January 2025. This is a full-time position (40 hours per week).

Candidates with severe disabilities will be given preference in the case of equal qualifications and suitability.
