Text: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) - The Research University in the Helmholtz Association creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. lt is ou r goa l to make significant contributions to mastering the global challenges of mankind in the fields of energy, mo bilit y, and information. For this, about 9.300 employees of KIT coopera te in a broad range of disciplines in research, academic education, and innovation. We are offering for the Division 1 - Bi o l o g y,Chemistry, and Process Engineerin g / KIT Department of Chem ical and Process Engine eri ng/Eng ler-Bunte-In st it ute, Divison Fuel Technology/lns titute of Catalysis Research and Technology (IKFT), earliest date possible, a W1 Tenure-track Professorship for Catalyst Materials for the Energy Transition This junior professorship (Wl ) is fi na nced from funds of the Fede ral-states Program Promoting Young Scientists. We are looking for an excellent early-stage researcher to represent the field of "Catalyst Ma terial s for the Energ y Trans ition• in research and teaching, with focus on the development and qualification of innovative catalysts for sustainable chemical processes. Applican ts should have completed their studies of engineering or natural sciences, preferably of chemical engineering, process engineering, technical chemistry,inorganic chemistry, or materials sciences. The scope of activities executed so far should clearly reveal own, successful approaches to research into catalyst materials. Relevant scientific competences in the areas of process intensification, catalyst characterization me thods, and handling of big experimental data volum es are welcome. At Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT) you benefit from a unique environment for your research on innovative production of materials for use as catalysts of chemical, electrochemical, or bi oelect rochemical processes. The candidate will apply her/h is findings in the scale-up of catalyst syntheses and will use automat ed processes fo r preparation, characterization, or testing of catalysts. In cooperation with colleagues of the institute, these procedures will be further optimized. The catalyst materials to be researched at your team are aimed, among other things, at the conversion of Cl building blocks to chemical intermediates and synthetic energy carriers and support the future change in the provision of energy and raw materials towards a circular economy. Work on th e corresponding applications will take place in cooperation with partners in Germany and abroad. Based on a target-oriented approach to working, the candidate will initiate projects and contribute to their successf ul completion. App licants are expected to independently acquire third-party funding after an appropriate period of time. For this purpose,close cooperation with other catalysis research teams at KIT is envisaged, also the participation on collaborative initiatives. For furth er personal development, KIT and the Helmholtz Assoc iati on offer specific services. Gradually, the candidate is expected to assume leadership responsibiliti es. In the area of academic education, involvement in bachelor's and master's programs offered by the KIT Departm ent of Chemical and Process Engineering is expec ted . Participation in teaching programs offered together with the KIT Department of Chemistry and Biosciences on the production of materials will be po ssib le. According to Art icl e 51, LHG (Law of Baden-Würt tembe rg on Uni versities and Colleges), candidates are expected to have completed their university stud ies, to possess pedagogic skills, and to be highly capable of doing scientific work. Em pl oy ment as a civil servant (Beamter) or employee (Angestellter) is offered for six years. In the third year of emp loymen t, an interim evaluation will be made. Out st anding achievements in research, teaching and innovation, which are recognized by extern al experts, are the prerequisite for a positive final evaluation. In case of a positive final evaluation, permanent professorship (W3) according to Arti cle 15, par. 2, KITG (Ac t on Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) will be offered. The evaluation procedure and general evaluation criteria are outli ned in the MQuallty Assurance Concept for Junior Professorshlps and Tenure-track Professorships at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KITr . The scientifi c results on the synthesis of novel catalyst materials, as weil as the development of new manufactu ring processes for catalysts and their scaling, which are tobe demonstrated in the form of peer-reviewed technical publications and acquired third-party funding, and the success ful qualification of students in the form of bachelor's and maste r's theses represent subject-specific evaluation criteria. For furth er career development, support and mentoring are off ered. KIT wishes to increase the proportion of female professors and, hence, strongly encourages qualified women to apply. Recognized severely disabled persons will be preferred if they are equally qualified. KIT is certified as a family-fr iendly university and offe rs part-tim e employment, leave for fam ily reasons, dual career services, and coaching to enhance the compatibility of job and famil y. The processing of personal data by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is carried out according to the Privacy Policy. Kindly mail your application, including CV including detailed previous employment per iod s, a research and teaching concept, publication list, acquired projects funded by third parties, and the three most important publications in electronic form until Janurary 3151, 2021 to Professor Dr. Andrea Robitzki, Head of Division 1 - Biology, Chemistry, and Process Engineering, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), c/o Dekanat der KIT-Fakultät für Chemieingenieurwesen und Verfahrenstechnik (Dean's Office of the KIT Department of Chemical and Process Engineering), Kaiserstr. 12, 76131 Karlsruhe, Germany, email: ciw@kit.edu . In case of questions relating to scientifi c matt ers, contact Professor Dr.-lng. Jörg Sauer, phone +49 721 608-22401, email: j.sauer@kit.edu .
