Future Lab

Visiting Scientist for Reversible Solid Oxide Fuel Cells in the Future Laboratory Green Hydrogen

As one of three postdoctoral scientists of the r-SOC work package in the Future Laboratory Green Hydrogen, you will be responsible for setting up and operating a pressure-driven short stack test rig for the experimental investigation of the influence of pressure on r-SOC degradation processes. You are welcome to use the freedom of the project to set your own priorities. Together with a total of eleven postdoctoral researchers, you will actively participate in the scientific-academic discourse on current research and development issues in the field of green hydrogen. You are expected to actively participate in the scientific exchange in the form of publications and conference contributions. This exchange is in the foreground in the Future Laboratory, a collegial and productive cooperation with the other scientists is a prerequisite.



 You have a PhD, work experience and several publications in the field of solid oxide cells. In addition, fluent written and spoken English is expected.
