Paul-Drude-Institut für Festkörperelektronik Leibniz-Institut im Forschungsverbund Berlin e. V.

The Paul Drude Insti­tute (PDI) per­forms basic research as a lively sym­bi­osis of mater­i­als sci­ence and solid state phys­ics. Our research aims at inspir­ing and demon­strat­ing new func­tion­al­it­ies for future inform­a­tion tech­no­lo­gies. As a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Gemeinsch­aft and Forschungs­ver­bund Ber­lin we are an inde­pend­ent research insti­tute with about 110 employ­ees. We are loc­ated in the very heart of the city near Gen­dar­men­markt. You may find more details at

PostDoc: MBE growth kin­et­ics and dop­ing of (Ga,Al)2O3

Work­ing field:

PDI has excel­lent expert­ise and facil­it­ies for the growth and invest­ig­a­tion of semi­con­duct­ors and is lead­ing a newly fun­ded, Ber­lin-based Leib­niz Sci­ence-Cam­pus „Growth and fun­da­ment­als of oxides for elec­tronic applic­a­tions“ (Gra­FOx). Gra­FOx includes groups from Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Kristallzüch­tung, Fritz-Haber-Insti­tut, Hum­boldt-Uni­versität and Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin.

Within Gra­FOx we are seek­ing you as a PostDoc for a pro­ject on the invest­ig­a­tion of the growth and dop­ing of (In,Ga,Al)2O3 and their het­ero­struc­tures by plasma-assisted molecu­lar beam epi­taxy. Besides device-qual­ity mater­ial with defined dop­ing, the pro­ject aims at improved mod­el­ling of the growth kin­et­ics. The mater­i­als focus will be on the pure Ga2O3, Al-con­tain­ing oxides (due to their large band gap), and on estab­lish­ing hydro­gen dop­ing. Your research includes the basic struc­tural and elec­trical char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion.


You should have a PhD in exper­i­mental solid state phys­ics or related fields as well as exper­i­ence with epi­taxy, mater­i­als char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion, and pub­lic­a­tion. We are look­ing for a team player with a high level of com­mu­nic­a­tion skills and the assert­ive­ness to work in a highly motiv­ated team of research­ers and tech­ni­cians, and to col­lab­or­ate with and help advising PhD stu­dents.

What we of­fer:

The pos­i­tion is avail­able as of now and its dur­a­tion is presently lim­ited to 1 years with an optional exten­sion. Pay­ment is accord­ing to TVöD (Treaty for Ger­man pub­lic ser­vice). PDI is an equal oppor­tun­ity employer. Among equally qual­i­fied applic­ants pref­er­ence will be given to dis­abled can­did­ates.

How to ap­ply:

Please sub­mit your applic­a­tion via email to includ­ing the pro­ject num­ber C3.3 in the sub­ject until June 16, 2017. For ques­tions on the pro­ject see or con­tact Dr. Oliver Bier­wa­gen,
