Postdoctoral Fellowship in Solid State Chemistry at Technical University Dresden in Germany, 2018

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids is inviting applications for Postdoctoral Fellows in Solid State Chemistry. Two pos­i­tions con­cern the thin film growth as main empha­sis and a third one is ded­ic­ated to their ana­lysis and char­ac­ter­isa­tion.

The Technical University Dresden (TUD) is one of the largest “Technical Universities” in Germany and one of the leading and most dynamic universities in Germany. As a full-curriculum university with 18 faculties in five schools, it offers a broad variety of 122 disciplines and covers a wide research spectrum. Its focuses of Biomedicine, Bioengineering, Materials sciences, Information technology, Microelectronics as well as Energy and Environment are considered exemplary in Germany and throughout Europe.

Scholarship Description: 

  • Application Deadline: This call is open up to March 31, 2018, or until the pos­i­tions are occu­pied.
  • Course Level: Fellowships are available to pursue Postdoctoral programme.
  • Study Subject: Fellowships are awarded in Solid State Chemistry. in the field of Thin Inter­metal­lic Films of Heus­ler Com­pounds for Spin­tron­ics and Topo­lo­gical Phe­nom­ena.

The Postdoc­toral fel­lows will cover the fields of:

  • Sput­ter depos­ition of inter­metal­lic thin films,
  • MBE layer by layer growth of inter­metal­lic thin films,
  • Char­ac­ter­isa­tion of thin films,
  • Angu­lar resol­ved pho­to­elec­tron spec­tro­scopy

Scholarship Award: Two pos­i­tions con­cern the thin film growth as the main empha­sis and a third one are ded­ic­ated to their ana­lysis and characterization.
You will par­ti­cip­ate in the ongo­ing in-house rese­arch pro­gramme and will be encour­aged to deve­lop your per­sonal rese­arch pro­gramme in emer­ging areas of con­den­sed mat­ter phys­ics and mater­i­als sci­ence.
