The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of the 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.

The Chair Materials Discovery and Interfaces at the Institute of Materials develops new multifunctional materials using combinatorial coating methods (material libraries) and high-throughput characterization methods. Unique experimental facilities are directly available for this purpose (6 combinatorial sputtering systems, high-throughput characterization methods).

To strengthen the international and efficient team at the chair, the position of a research associate (m/f/d) is available as soon as possible (project duration 2 years). The responsibilities include experimental work (synthesis of material libraries, high throughput characterization), working on industrial projects and publicly funded projects as well as supervising students (bachelor, master theses). We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with excellent knowledge in the field of materials science and thin film technology, who is willing to tackle new, exciting and promising topics in an interdisciplinary environment and who has the ambition to efficiently generate, publish and bring new scientific knowledge into application with the exceptional experimental capabilities available. The future research associate (m/f/d) is expected to work independently with a high level of motivation, to be able to work together in teams in a goal-oriented manner, to efficiently translate results into scientific publications, to have very good scientific, technical and communication skills, and to be fluent in written and spoken English.
