Paul-Drude-Institut für Festkörperelektronik Leibniz-Institut im Forschungsverbund Berlin e. V.

The Paul Drude Insti­tute (PDI) per­forms basic research as a lively sym­bi­osis of mater­i­als sci­ence and solid state phys­ics. Our research aims at inspir­ing and demon­strat­ing new func­tion­al­it­ies for future inform­a­tion tech­no­lo­gies. As a mem­ber of the Leib­niz-Gemeinsch­aft and Forschungs­ver­bund Ber­lin e.V. we are an inde­pend­ent research insti­tute with about 100 employ­ees. We are loc­ated in the very heart of the city near Gen­dar­men­markt. You may find more details at

Postdoc pos­i­tion in Elec­tron Tomo­graphy (m/f/d)


Work­ing field:

PDI has long-stand­ing expert­ise in the field of micro­struc­ture ana­lysis of epi­taxial semi­con­ductor sys­tems using trans­mis­sion elec­tron micro­scopy. We have recently estab­lished the "Applic­a­tion Labor­at­ory Elec­tron Tomo­graphy" (BALET, see, which is equipped with state-of-the-art micro­scopy facil­it­ies. The applic­a­tion labor­at­ory, which has been fun­ded by an ERDF pro­ject of the European Union and the Sen­ate of Ber­lin, is inten­ded to pro­mote cooper­a­tion with external part­ners from sci­ence and local industry. To strengthen the work of our applic­a­tion labor­at­ory, we are look­ing for a postdoc­toral researcher who will fur­ther develop the meth­od­o­logy and apply elec­tron tomo­graphy to a vari­ety of prob­lems, spe­cific­ally inter­face struc­tures, crys­tal defects, as well as nano­scale com­pos­i­tional fluc­tu­ations in novel mater­ial sys­tems.


The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will have a PhD in solid state phys­ics, mater­i­als sci­ence or related fields. A spe­cific require­ment for this pos­i­tion is in-depth know­ledge and prac­tical exper­i­ence in elec­tron micro­scopy with a strong focus on tomo­graphy applic­a­tions. Hands-on exper­i­ence with an aber­ra­tion cor­rec­ted scan­ning trans­mis­sion elec­tron micro­scope is a bonus. We are look­ing for a team player with excel­lent of com­mu­nic­a­tion skills and the self-con­fid­ence to work in a highly motiv­ated team of research­ers, tech­ni­cians and PhD stu­dents.

What we of­fer:

The pos­i­tion is avail­able for 2 years. Pay­ment is accord­ing to TVöD (Treaty for Ger­man pub­lic ser­vice). The Paul Drude Insti­tute aims at increas­ing the quota of female employ­ees. The applic­a­tion of women is there­fore encour­aged. Among equally qual­i­fied applic­ants, pref­er­ence will be given to dis­abled can­did­ates.

How to ap­ply:

Applic­a­tions includ­ing a motiv­a­tion let­ter, a CV, degrees with tran­scripts, a pub­lic­a­tion list and two ref­er­ences should be sent prefer­ably in PDF format by Septem­ber 30, 2021 using “BALET” in the sub­ject line to:
