The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of the leading research universities. The university draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.

RESOLV ( is a world-leading interdisciplinary research institution in Solvation Science awarded as a Cluster of Excellence by the German Excellence Strategy. Within RESOLV, more than 200 scientists at six institutions in the Ruhr area covering experimental chemistry, biochemistry, physics, theory and chemical engineering investigate how solvents are involved in the control, mediation and regulation of chemical reactions and processes. RESOLV’s mission stretches from fundamental research to the translation into applications such as green technologies or smart sensors.

Research focusses on three main research areas:

1. Local Solvent Fluctuations in Heterogeneous Systems
2. Solvent Control of Chemical Dynamics and Reactivity
3. Solvation Under Extreme Conditions

RESOLV is looking for full-time postdoctoral researchers (m/f/d) for temporary research subprojects (2 years, 39.83 h/week, payment according to public service’s wage agreement: TVL E13).
