PhD and first year postdoc positions available at Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY, Hamburg, Germany

for their device developments of high-efficiency organic solar cells and/or OER catalysts, Desy is looking for highly enthusiastic PhD students or first-year postdocs with a background in materials physics, X-ray physics, physical chemistry or organic chemistry.
Topic of the advertised positions are (i) the (ultrafast) and time-resolved in-situ and operando X-ray studies of light-element-based organoelectronics and organic solid state reactions, and (ii) water-splitting reactions on perovskites.

Background knowledge in optical or X-ray solid state studies (at synchrotrons or Free-electron lasers) are of advantage.
