Working field:

The construction sector is responsible for a significant proportion of CO2 emissions worldwide. One strategy to significantly reduce these emissions is the use of carbon fibers as a substitute for steel. However, a truly sustainable use of carbon fibers is only possible if efficient recycling is established for these materials. As part of the tendered project, electrochemical recycling processes for carbon fibers shall be developed and continuously tested with regard to their sustainability. Furthermore in-situ spectroscopic methods shall be applied to analyze the quality of the fibers during the recycling process. The position is integrated into the Collaborative Research Center/Transregio 280 "Design Strategies for Material-Minimized Carbon-Reinforced Concrete Structures".


university degree in chemistry, physics or related subjects, preferentially with electrochemistry and spectroscopy background. We are looking for a motivated candidate, who is interested in interdisciplinary cooperation with the fields of civil engineering and life cycle assessment.
