Lab Tour

This is where we are ...

The laser facilities of the Molecular Physical Chemistry Group are located in the basement, North wing of the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry (IPTC) and cover a total area of 180 m2. The necessary renovations of this part of the building including the installation and/or modernization of the technical infrastructure (electricity, cooling circuits, air conditioning, pressurized air, etc.) begun in Summer 2005 and were completed in February 2007.

Vacant positions

Motivated scientists who are interested to join our group as a postdoc, as a graduate student or as a diploma student are invited to visit us and to see our laboratories at any time. You can also apply through regular mail or by e-mail.

Master of Science degree


Currently, the following projects leading to a M.Sc. degree in Chemisty are available:

  • Infrared and Raman spectroscopy in supercritical fluids

Currently, the following projects leading to a Ph.D. (Promotion) in Chemisty are available:

  • Ultrafast reaction dynamics of transition metal complexes
  • Two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy of molecular dynamics

Prospective postdocs with a PhD/Doctorate in Physical Chemistry or Physics should have a strong background in optical (preferentially ultrafast) spectroscopy and microscopy. A keen interest in condensed matter chemistry and physics is advantageous. Applicants for a graduate program should have successfully completed a master/diploma in Physical Chemistry or Physics. We offer a stimulating environment in a young and highly motivated research team. Salaries will comply with the guidelines of the University of Bonn or the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. The University of Bonn is an equal opportunities employer. Preference will be given to suitably qualified women or handicapped people, all other considerations being equal.
