IFW Dres­den e.V. - Fest­kör­per- und Werk­stoff­for­schung

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden – in short IFW Dresden – is a non-uni­versity research insti­tute and a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation. The IFW employs approx­im­ately 600 people and one focus is on the train­ing of young sci­ent­ists besides enhan­cing fun­da­mental and applied research devel­op­ment. At the highest inter­na­tional level, the IFW oper­ates mod­ern mater­i­als sci­ence on a sci­entific basis and makes the ob-tained res­ults use­ful for the eco­nomy. The com­plex and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research work is car­ried out within the IFW by five sci­entific insti­tutes, which are sup­por­ted by a highly developed tech­nical infra­struc­ture. The IFW sup­ports its employ­ees in recon­cil­ing work and fam­ily life and reg­u­larly sub­mits to the beru­fund­fam­ilie® audit.

Postdoc pos­i­tion (m/f/d)


Work­ing field:

The cooper­at­ive pro­ject aims at the devel­op­ment of a laser-based pro­cess chain for the fab­ric­a­tion and func­tion­al­iz­a­tion of bone implants made of a novel beta-Ti alloy. The tasks of the pro­ject employee com­prise stud­ies regard­ing chem­ical and phys­ical sur­face treat­ments of implant-rel­ev­ant alloy spe­ci­mens fab­ric­ated with addit­ive man­u­fac­tur­ing and the detailed char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of those sur­face states.


Can­did­ates hold­ing a dip­loma or mas­ter degree and a doc­tor­ate degree in chem­istry, chem­ical engin­eer­ing, mater­i­als sci­ence or mater­i­als engin­eer­ing are encour­aged to apply. The pos­i­tion requires a fun­da­mental know­ledge of metal­lic mater­i­als, primar­ily a com­pre­hens­ive expert­ise regard­ing sur­face treat­ment meth­ods for metal­lic implants, as well as, con­sol­id­ated prac­tical exper­i­ences with rel­ev­ant phys­ical-chem­ical and sur­face ana­lyt­ical char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion meth­ods like SEM, AFM, XRD, spec­tro­scopic meth­ods and wet­tab­il­ity test­ing. Know­ledge of cell bio­lo­gical ana­lyt­ics is desir­able.
We expect a high degree of inde­pend­ent sci­entific work includ­ing pub­lic­a­tion and pro­ject report­ing as well as read­i­ness for act­ive cooper­a­tion with our pro­ject part­ners from the fields of sur­face design, cell bio­logy and medi­cine. The abil­ity to work in a team and very good Eng­lish skills are required.

What we of­fer:

The Insti­tute of Com­plex Mater­i­als offers within the frame­work of a third-party fun­ded research pro­ject
Postdoc pos­i­tion (m/f/d)
from 01.10.2020 till 31.12.2021 with a weekly work­ing time of 40 hrs (part-time is pos­sible). The employ­ment rela­tion­ship, includ­ing remu­ner­a­tion, is gov­erned by col­lect­ive bar­gain­ing for the pub­lic ser­vice of the Länder. The remu­ner­a­tion is based upon the TV-L rules (EG 13, 100%). The IFW would like to increase the pro­por­tion of women in sci­ence. Qual­i­fied women are there­fore expli­citly invited to apply. Severely dis­abled applic­ants (m/f/d) are given pref­er­en­tial treat­ment if they have the same qual­i­fic­a­tions.

How to ap­ply:

If you are inter­ested in the pos­i­tion, please send your applic­a­tion includ­ing a CV, a motiv­a­tion let­ter describ­ing the research career goals, skills and exper­i­ence, cop­ies of cer­ti­fic­ates cit­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber (3310-1/20) as a single pdf file (other formats will not be accep­ted) exclus­ively to:

The pos­i­tion is open as long as the announce­ment is online.
