Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Col­la­bo­ra­tive Rese­arch Cen­ter (SFB) 1143 “Cor­re­la­ted Magne­tism: From Frus­tra­tion to Topo­logy”

Die TU Dres­den ist eine der elf Exzel­len­z­u­ni­ver­sitä­ten Deut­sch­lands. Als Voll­u­ni­ver­sität mit brei­tem Fächer­spek­trum zählt sie zu den for­schungs­s­tärks­ten Hoch­schu­len. Aus­tau­sch und Koope­ra­tion zwi­schen den Wis­sen­schaf­ten, mit Wirt­schaft und Gesell­schaft sind dafür die Grund­lage. Ziel ist es, im Wett­be­werb der Uni­ver­sitä­ten auch in Zukunft Spit­zen­plätze zu bele­gen. Daran und am Erfolg beim Trans­fer von Grund­la­gen­wis­sen und For­schung­s­er­geb­nis­sen mes­sen wir unsere Leis­tun­gen in Lehre, Stu­dium, For­schung und Wei­ter­bil­dung.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD Stu­dent

The Col­la­bo­ra­tive Rese­arch Cen­ter (SFB) 1143 “Cor­re­la­ted Magne­tism: From Frus­tra­tion to Topo­logy” offers a posi­tion as Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD Stu­dent
(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L) at the cross­over of Mate­ri­als Che­mi­stry and Solid State Phy­sics star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­tion ent­ails 75 % of the full­time wee­kly hours and is limi­ted for three years (latest 31.12.2022). The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ge­setz-WissZeitVG). The posi­tion aims at obtai­ning fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD).
The SFB 1143 has suc­cess­fully accom­plished the first fun­ding period in 2018 and has been exten­ded for the second fun­ding period 2019–2022. The con­sor­tium has achie­ved natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal impact and visi­bi­lity via resource­ful col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons, excel­lent infra­st­ruc­ture and high publi­ca­tion rates.
The B01 pro­ject of the SFB in par­ti­cu­lar explo­res mate­ri­als aspects of oxide and halide frus­tra­ted magnets based on 3d, 4d, and 5d tran­si­tion metals with three cen­tral aims: (i) deve­lop­ment of syn­the­tic rou­tes for poly­crystal­line sam­ples of emer­gent frus­tra­ted magnets, (ii) explo­ra­tion of growth rou­tes for yet unavail­able sin­gle-crystals, and (iii) inves­ti­ga­tion of struc­tu­ral, magne­tic and ther­mo­dy­na­mic pro­per­ties of magne­ti­cally frus­tra­ted mate­ri­als. Clas­ses of mate­ri­als that will be stu­died com­prise dou­ble perovs­ki­tes with aniso­tro­pic or com­pe­ting magne­tic inter­ac­tions; laye­red clus­ter com­pounds with kagome struc­tu­ral motifs; laye­red tri­ha­li­des as well as laye­red oxy­ha­li­des and tetra­ha­li­des.
The PhD pro­ject will be con­duc­ted at the Faculty of Phy­sics of TU Dres­den in the newly foun­ded rese­arch group of Jun.-Prof. Dr. Anna Isa­eva in strong col­la­bo­ra­tion with the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mate­ri­als Rese­arch (IFW Dres­den) and the Faculty of Che­mi­stry and Food Che­mi­stry (Prof. Dr. M. Ruck).

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful app­li­cant will work on syn­the­sis, crys­tal growth and struc­ture cha­rac­te­ri­za­tion of novel, per­spec­tive can­di­da­tes for magne­tic frus­tra­tion, in par­ti­cu­lar:
  • con­duct and fine-tune crys­tal-growth tech­ni­ques, inclu­ding che­mi­cal vapor trans­port reac­tions;
  • per­form explo­ra­tive syn­the­sis in order to iden­tify new pro­mi­sing mate­rial can­di­da­tes and study their ther­mo­che­mi­cal pro­per­ties;
  • elu­ci­date crys­tal struc­tures by com­bi­ned pow­der/sin­gle-crys­tal X-ray dif­frac­tion and trans­mis­sion elec­tron micro­scopy;
  • work in a strong, inter­di­sci­pli­nary team of che­mists, expe­ri­men­tal phy­si­cists and theo­re­ti­ci­ans and coor­di­nate the “che­mi­stry” input for the stu­dies of magne­tic and elec­tro­nic phase dia­grams.


uni­ver­sity degree (M.Sc., Dipl.) in mate­ri­als sci­ence, che­mi­stry or rela­ted disci­pli­nes, pre­fer­a­bly with nota­ble prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence in solid-state syn­the­sis and crys­tal X-ray dif­frac­tion; basic com­pe­ten­ces in solid state phy­sics/magne­tism; good spo­ken and writ­ten Eng­lish; abi­lity to work in a team and strong moti­va­tion; wil­ling­ness to inte­grate into the exis­ting team and to take over respon­si­bi­lity.
