Research Assistant (PostDoc) - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen - 2nd qual­i­fic­a­tion period (Habil­it­a­tion)

part-time employment is may be possible

Working field:

The "Optoelectronics and Quantum Components" group deals with the development of innovative material and device concepts based on low-dimensional semiconductor materials. In addition to basic investigations on the physical properties of such structures, novel applications in photonic quantum technology and neuromorphic computing are the focus of research activities. The diverse research activities of the group are embedded in national and international cooperations.

Applicants have the opportunity to carry out innovative research and development work in the field of quantum nanophotonics using state-of-the-art methods in a very attractive research environment.

The main tasks are:
  • Numerical design and optimization of semiconductor devices for applications in photonic quantum technology and neuromorphic computing
  • Nanofabrication of quantum devices and nanophotonic structures in a clean room environment
  • Experimental studies on the developed quantum devices and nanophotonic structures. Here, optical and quantum-optical methods are in the foreground
  • Supervision of bachelor and master students as well as doctoral students,
  • Acquisition and management of third-party funded projects
  • Teaching activities in advanced practical courses and seminars in nanophotonics.


Successfully completed scientific university degree (diploma, master's degree or equivalent) in physics, preferably with in-depth knowledge and experience in the development and fabrication of nanophotonic devices using modern nanoprocessing technology. Experiences in the optical and quantum optical study of semiconductor nanostructures; strong interest in innovative approaches and research questions in quantum nanophotonics, quantum technology and nanotechnology; special qualification of scientific aptitude, which is usually proven by an outstanding doctoral thesis; very good knowledge of English; good knowledge of German; Experience in interdisciplinary cooperation in international research projects, in project management and an excellent list of publications are desired.
