5 year postdoc position in Molecular Physics/Physical Chemistry Technical University of Berlin, Germany

A (senior) postdoctoral position for up to five years is available in the laser molecular spectroscopy and environmental physics group of Otto Dopfer at the Berlin Institute of Technology /Technical University of Berlin, TU Berlin), Germany.
The predominantly experimental research of our group involves the laser spectroscopic, mass spectrometric, and quantum chemical investigation 
of molecules, radicals, ions, clusters, and nanostructures in the gas phase, with strong relevance to a broad range of interdisciplinary
topics ranging from materials science to biophysics, catalysis, astrochemistry, environmental chemistry, and plasma physics.
Available equipment includes a variety of pulsed and tuneable IR and UV lasers (IR-OPO, UV-VIS-OPO, dye), several ion sources 
(electron impact, discharge, laser desorption, electrospray) and cryogenic rf-traps, as well as several types of tandem mass spectrometers (time-of-flight, quadrupole).
The group is also strongly involved in international collaborations with groups in Japan, France, Italy, UK, Netherlands, and has been a regular user of the 
IR free electron laser facilities CLIO (France), FELIX (Netherlands), and more recently the FHI-FEL (Berlin).
More details about the group are available at
Qualified candidates hold a PhD in Physics, Physical Chemistry, or related fields with a strong publication record and ideally already some initial postdoctoral experience (all in experimental science) which is not substantially longer than 3 years.
The successful candidate will be involved in supervising PhD and undergraduate students, will take high responsibility for several existing research projects, and will be strongly involved in developing new research directions (i.e. writing proposals).
This long-term position is ideal for candidates who are pursuing an academic career (with possibility for Habilitation) by developing also their own research interests.
The position is funded by TU Berlin and thus involves also teaching duties in the area of Experimental (mostly Molecular) Physics (either in German or in English).
Salary is a 100% position according to E13/E14 depending on experience.
Experience in several of the following fields is mandatory:
(1) laser spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, ion sources and traps, cluster science
(2) vacuum, optics, data acquisition, construction of apparatus
(3) writing of publications, reports, and proposals
(4) strong communication and presentation skills
Interested and highly qualified candidates are encouraged to send theirapplication (in a single pdf file) to Prof. Otto Dopfer (dopfer@physik.tu-berlin.de), including a cover letter, a CV (including a list of publications), a statement of qualifications relevant for the position (max. 1 page), a statement of research interests (max. 1 page) as well as names and complete addresses of two referees. 
Evaluation of the applications will begin at September 16 (2022) and will continue until the position is filled. 
The position is avaliable starting from October 1 (2022) and the desired starting date is as soon as possible but this is negotiable to some extent.
