Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Phy­sics, Insti­tute of Solid State and Mate­ri­als Phy­sics, Chair of Neu­tron Spec­tro­scopy of Con­den­sed Mat­ter

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD Stu­dent

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The posi­tion is star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble for a period of 36 mon­ths with 60% of the full­time wee­kly hours. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG). The posi­tion offers the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD).
The goal of the pro­ject, fun­ded by the Ger­man Rese­arch Foun­da­tion (DFG), is to expe­ri­ment­ally inves­ti­gate the magne­tic exci­ta­ti­ons of heli­cal and topo­lo­gi­cal spin struc­tures in SrFeO₃ and Sr₃Fe₂O₇ to under­stand magne­tic inter­ac­tions under­pin­ning novel skyr­mion- and hedge­hog-lat­tice pha­ses in the for­mer and to improve the model descrip­tion of low-energy spin dyna­mics in stron­tium iron oxi­des and rela­ted cen­tro­sym­metric com­pounds with non­col­li­near spin struc­tures.

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will inves­ti­gate the spin dyna­mics of the magne­tic com­pounds, avail­able in the form of exis­ting high-qua­lity sin­gle crystals, pri­ma­rily using inelastic neu­tron scat­te­ring; eva­luate the resul­ting mea­su­rement data; and inter­pret the data in close col­la­bo­ra­tion with a theory group. An under­stan­ding of the magne­tic exci­ta­ti­ons in topo­lo­gi­cal multi-q struc­tures which arise due to magne­tic frus­tra­tion at low tem­pe­ra­tures will be achie­ved through the com­pa­ri­son bet­ween expe­ri­ment and theory.


A uni­ver­sity degree (e.g. M.Sc. or Diploma) in solid state phy­sics or rela­ted disci­pli­nes; basic com­pe­tence in solid state phy­sics, crystal­lo­gra­phy, magne­tism, and quan­tum mecha­nics; pre­fer­a­bly prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence with expe­ri­men­tal methods of sam­ple cha­rac­te­ri­za­tion at low tem­pe­ra­tures (e.g. magne­to­me­try, spe­ci­fic heat, x-ray dif­frac­tion, etc.); very good know­ledge of writ­ten and spo­ken Eng­lish; abi­lity to work crea­tively and inde­pendently; above-average com­mit­ment and wil­ling­ness to inte­grate into the exis­ting team and to assume respon­si­bi­lity.

What we of­fer:

We offer: Inten­sive men­to­ring in an attrac­tive sci­en­ti­fic envi­ron­ment in com­bi­na­tion with excel­lent infra­st­ruc­ture. The pro­ject pro­mo­tes col­la­bo­ra­tion in an estab­lished, inter­di­sci­pli­nary team of expe­ri­men­ta­lists and theo­re­ti­ci­ans and offers various oppor­tu­nities for coope­ra­tion with other rese­arch groups.
