Full Professor of Inorganic Active Materials for Electrochemical Energy Storage Devices

pay grade W 3 (minimum salary per month: € 7,217) to commence as soon as possible. This is a permanent civil service position. Additional salary components will be negotiated separately.

We are looking for a scholar who is an internationally recognized expert in the synthesis, characterization, and processing of inorganic active materials for electrochemical energy storage. The willingness and ability to obtain external funding, including in the context of coordinated programmes, must be evident.

The successful applicant will play an active, leading role in the newly founded Bavarian Centre for Battery Technology (BayBatt). In particular, he or she will be entrusted with managing the Key Lab "Battery Cell Technology". Relevant experience in this field would therefore be an asset. Cooperation is an important basis for successful research at the University of Bayreuth. For this reason, collaboration with other institutions, such as the BZKG, is also encouraged.

The postholder will play a pivotal role in the interdisciplinary master's programme Battery Technology & Battery System Engineering that is currently being established. In addition to this research-related teaching, more basic teaching will also be provided for students enrolled in our major and minor subjects, especially in the bachelor's programmes “Chemistry” and “Polymer & Colloid Chemistry” and the master's programmes “Materials Chemistry & Catalysis” and “Polymer Science”. The ability to teach in English and German is expected.

In addition to the general administrative requirements, prerequisites for this position are a university degree, a doctoral degree, proven excellence in teaching and a post-doctoral qualification to teach at a professorial level (Habilitation). Alternatively evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement, for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment, will also be considered. Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants. Exceptions are possible in urgent cases.

The University of Bayreuth views the diversity of its staff as an asset and is expressly committed to the goal of gender equality.  Female scholars and any persons who can help make the research and teaching profile of the university more diverse are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth is a member of the best practice club Family at University, and it offers “dual career support” for career-oriented partners of highly qualified employees. In addition, an extended audit conducted by the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) returned a favourable review for the University of Bayreuth’s commitment to internationalization. All qualifications being equal, applicants with disabilities will be given priority.

Please send your cover letter and supporting documents (CV outlining education and academic career, list of publications, list of courses taught, a description of your research, as well as copies of all diplomas and certificates) as a single PDF file (up to 30 MB) to the Dean of the Faculty of Biology, Chemistry & Earth Sciences (Dekanat.BCG@uni-bayreuth.de) by 09.08.2020. After the conclusion of the appointment process, application documents will be permanently disposed of in accordance with data protection law.
