Postdoc (f/m/d): Optical spectroscopy of oxides for electronic applications
PDI has excellent expertise and facilities for the growth and investigation of semiconductor-based materials. It leads the Leibniz ScienceCampus Growth and Fundamentals of Oxides for Electronic Applications (GraFOx), a research network consisting of three Leibniz Institutes, three Universities, a Max Planck Institute and a Helmholtz Center in Berlin.
In the framework of cluster P, project P7, of GraFOx, the successful candidate will explore the electronic and structural properties of oxides and oxide heterostructures in close collaboration with the scientific and technical staff. Phenomena connected with the formation of alloys will be of particular interest. The research will focus on optical spectroscopy, especially Raman scattering. We are looking for a dedicated and motivated postdoc, who enjoys working collaboratively in a diverse team. Applicants should have a Ph. D. degree in experimental physics and a background in semiconductor physics. Expertise in optical spectroscopy of solid-state materials is required. Good communication skills and the spirit to work in an interdisciplinary team are important.
What we offer:
The position is available as of now and limited to two years. All applicants must submit their application as PDF file via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 30, 2022 with reference to the project “P7” in the subject line, including a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, contact information for up to three references, certificates of degree(s), and transcript(s).
PDI takes an active role in building a talented, inclusive, and culturally competent workforce. We understand that our shared future is guided by basic principles of fairness and mutual respect. We aim to increase the number of female scientists at the institute, applications from women are particularly welcome. Among equally qualified applicants, preference will be given to candidates with disabilities. Salary and benefits are according to the Treaty for German public service (TVöD Bund). As equal-opportunity and family-friendly employer, we offer highly flexible employment conditions, such as flexible working hours, parental leave, home office, and strive to create a family- and life-conscious working environment.
