Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den-Ros­sen­dorf e.V.

The Branden­burg Uni­versity of Tech­no­logy (BTU) Cottbus-Sen­ften­berg is a young uni­versity that is act­ively help­ing to shape the struc­tural change in Lusa­tia to phase out lig­nite and is provid­ing sci­entific sup­port for trans­form­a­tion pro­cesses in many ways. In the com­ing dec­ades, the region will be one of the most excit­ing real labor­at­or­ies in Ger­many, from which ground-break­ing devel­op­ment impulses are to eman­ate. Employ­ment at the BTU there­fore prom­ises more than ever par­ti­cip­a­tion in devel­op­ment pro­cesses towards a sus­tain­able and cli­mate-friendly future.

Pro­fess­or­ship Coordin­a­tion Chem­istry with spe­cial­iz­a­tion on Radi­o­nuc­lides (W2)

Working field:

The Fac­ulty of Envir­on­ment and Nat­ural Sci­ences invites applic­a­tions for a


Coordin­a­tion Chem­istry with spe­cial­iz­a­tion on Radi­o­nuc­lides (W2)

com­men­cing at the earli­est oppor­tun­ity.

This pro­fess­or­ship is filled in per­sonal union with the man­age­ment of the depart­ment "Chem­istry of f-Ele­ments" of the Insti­tute for Resource Eco­logy of the Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dresden-Rossen­dorf accord­ing to the so-called Jülich model. Main place of work is the HZDR research site Dresden-Rossen­dorf.

We are look­ing for a sci­en­tific­ally out­stand­ing per­son­al­ity who com­pre­hens­ively rep­res­ents the area of coordin­a­tion chem­istry and in par­tic­u­lar the sub­stant­ive focus of coordin­a­tion chem­istry of radi­o­nuc­lides in research and teach­ing. The main top­ics of your cur­rent and future research are:

  • the chem­istry of nat­ural and syn­thetic radi­oele­ments with a focus on actin­ides and transuranium ele­ments, in par­tic­u­lar exper­i­ence in the hand­ling of transuranium ele­ments and
  • the syn­thesis of com­plex com­pounds of radi­o­nuc­lides and espe­cially actin­ides with inor­ganic, organic lig­ands and those with bio­lo­gic­ally inspired bind­ing motifs and
  • chem­ical ana­lysis and meth­ods for struc­ture elu­cid­a­tion and bond ana­lysis in com­plex com­pounds, namely single crys­tal X-ray dif­frac­tion, NMR and lumin­es­cence spec­tro­scopic meth­ods for struc­ture ana­lysis in solu­tion, syn­chro­tron sur­face X-ray dif­frac­tion (SXD), quantum-chem­ical cal­cu­la­tions and
  • radi­o­nuc­lide sorp­tion on min­eral sur­faces, radi­o­nuc­lide migra­tion and
  • research expert­ise in the areas of nuc­lear waste dis­posal research.

Your com­mit­ment is demon­strated by the act­ive acquis­i­tion of third-party fund­ing, prefer­ably in the basic research-ori­ented field, as well as by act­ive pub­lic­a­tion activ­it­ies. You estab­lish new sci­entific col­lab­or­a­tions within and out­side the fac­ulty as well as with non-uni­versity insti­tu­tions and show com­mit­ment to par­ti­cip­ate in joint research pro­jects with other depart­ments of the fac­ulty and the uni­versity.

Teach­ing respons­ib­il­it­ies include par­ti­cip­a­tion in basic and spe­cial lec­tures held in Ger­man lan­guage as well as par­ti­cip­a­tion in prac­tical courses in the con­sec­ut­ive Bach­elor's and Mas­ter's degree pro­gram "Mater­i­als Chem­istry" and their design using innov­at­ive teach­ing formats. Act­ive par­ti­cip­a­tion in the fur­ther devel­op­ment and future pro­fil­ing of the study pro­gram "Mater­i­als Chem­istry" is required. In addi­tion, courses - also in Eng­lish - are to be taught in other degree pro­grams at the BTU. The teach­ing oblig­a­tion is 2 LVS. Lec­tures are primar­ily to be held in Ger­man; flu­ency in Eng­lish is expec­ted.

Exper­i­ence in the acquis­i­tion and real­isa­tion of third-party fun­ded pro­jects is expec­ted. Fields of research should be rel­ev­ant for the DFG (Ger­man Research Found­a­tion) or sim­ilar inter­na­tional research fund­ing organ­isa­tions.

For fur­ther inform­a­tion please con­tact Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil. Jörg Acker, Tel. +49 (0)3573 85-816 / email:

Other duties res­ult from the require­ments set by § 42 Branden­bur­gisches Hoch­schul­ge­setz (Higher Edu­ca­tion Act of the State of Branden­burg - BbgHG) in con­junc­tion with § 3 BbgHG. Please refer to §§ 41 para­graph 1 No 1 – 4a and 43 BbgHG for pre­requis­ites and con­di­tions of employ­ment.

BTU Cottbus-Sen­ften­berg is com­mit­ted to equal oppor­tun­it­ies and diversity and strives for a bal­anced gender ratio in all employee groups. Per­sons with a severe dis­ab­il­ity and their equals are given pri­or­ity in the case of equal suit­ab­il­ity.

As a fam­ily-ori­ented Uni­versity, BTU Cottbus-Sen­ften­berg offers a Dual Career Ser­vice.
