Postdoctoral Position (m/f/d) | Spectroscopy studies of complex processes in thermal catalysis and electrochemistry

  The   Department of Interface Science  headed by Prof. Beatriz Roldán Cuenya at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society carries out cutting-edge research on advanced functional materials with applications in heterogeneous catalysis, energy conversion and electrochemistry. By combining unique synthesis methods, state-of-the art tools for experimental characterization and advanced approaches to data analysis, atomistic details of thermal catalysis and electrochemical reactions at gas/solid and liquid/solid interfaces are revealed. In particular, structure-reactivity correlations on nanostructured materials can be established, paving the way for the rational design of novel catalytic materials. We are currently looking for a  postdoctoral researcher (m/f/d)  for the  Spectro-Microscopy group at the Department of Interface Science . Project: Spectromicroscopy Studies of Complex Processes in Thermal Catalysis and Electrochemistry The group operates an ultra-high vacuum (UHV) b

Postdoctoral Position (m/f/d) PD 16/22 | Neuropsychology

  The Department of Neuropsychology (Director: A.D. Friederici) at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences   (MPI CBS, Leipzig, Germany) has an opening for a   Postdoctoral Position (m/f/d) in evolutionary diffusion MRI brain connectivity. The position is initially offered for two years in the collaborative project “Evolution of Brain Connectivity” between the MPI CBS, the MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology, and the Institute for Cognitive Sciences of the CNRS in Lyon, France. The research project focuses on the evolutionary trajectory of brain connectivity between nonhuman primates and humans. MRI data of the brain is collected in an ethical and sustainable manner from nonhuman primates that died naturally in the wild, in sanctuaries and zoos. The newly established post-mortem diffusion MRI (dMRI) protocol provides data of unpreceded resolution and quality and allows us to address new questions related to evolution. The successful candidate will work in an inter
