Deadline: 31 March 2018,
Open to: international students
Fellowship: con­tract of 24 months +  salary


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 characterization

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


Your Pro­file, Skills, and Exper­i­ence

  • PhD in phys­ics, chem­istry, mater­i­als, or clo­sely rela­ted sci­ence obtai­ned less than 3 years ago;
  • a strong back­ground in thin film tech­niques is essen­tial;
  • Pro­fi­ciency with other com­ple­ment­ary labor­at­ory tech­niques as men­tio­ned above is desir­able;
  • Exper­i­ence with rese­arch at large scale facil­it­ies;
  • Abil­ity to inter­act with multi-dis­cip­lin­ary staff at the bor­der bet­ween phys­ics and chem­istry;
  • Good time man­age­ment skills and abil­ity to pri­or­it­ize;
  • Eng­lish pro­fi­ciency (work­ing lan­guage in the group), Ger­man is of advant­age for com­mu­nic­a­tion with our tech­nical per­sonal.


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.
Our Work­ing Con­di­tions

  • Con­tract of 24 months, renew­able for a fur­ther 12 to 36-month period;
  • The salary will be accord­ing to the con­di­tions of the Ger­man fed­eral labor agree­ment (entry level TVöD-13);
