Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Fest­kör­per- und Werk­stoff­for­schung Dres­den e. V.

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden – in short IFW Dresden – is a non-uni­versity research insti­tute and a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation. The IFW employs approx­im­ately 600 people and one focus is on the train­ing of young sci­ent­ists besides enhan­cing fun­da­mental and applied research devel­op­ment. At the highest inter­na­tional level, the IFW oper­ates mod­ern mater­i­als sci­ence on a sci­entific basis and makes the obtained res­ults use­ful for the eco­nomy. The com­plex and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research work is car­ried out within the IFW by five sci­entific insti­tutes, which are sup­por­ted by a highly developed tech­nical infra­struc­ture. The IFW sup­ports its employ­ees in recon­cil­ing work and fam­ily life and reg­u­larly sub­mits to the beru­fund­fam­ilie® audit. Fur­ther inform­a­tion at:

The Insti­tute for Solid State Research at the IFW Dresden offers in the field of Sur­face Dynam­ics a po-sition as Doc­toral Researcher (m/f/d) start­ing as soon as pos­sible.

Doc­toral Researcher (m/f/d)

Work­ing field:

The work com­prises exper­i­mental and the­or­et­ical invest­ig­a­tions on SAW-based actu­at­ors to get deeper under­stand­ing of mech­an­isms and effects gov­ern­ing two-dimen­sional focus­ing of particles as well as heat­ing in micro­fluidic setups. The pro­ject focus offers very good con­di­tions for a doc­tor­ate. In addi­tion, the internal doc­toral pro­gram ensures intens­ive sci­entific super­vi­sion and the swift imple­ment­a­tion of the doc­toral pro­ject.


We are con­sid­er­ing applic­ants (m/f/d) who have a mas­ter degree or dip­loma in phys­ics, elec­trical engi-neer­ing or mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing as well as a good know­ledge and ideally first exper­i­ence in the fields:
  • fluid mech­an­ics, micro­fluidics
  • microacous­tics or MEMS, espe­cially sur­face acous­tic wave (SAW) tech­no­logy
  • radio fre­quency meas­ure­ment tech­no­logy
  • sim­u­la­tions based on MAT­LAB, COM­SOL or sim­ilar.
We expect good com­mu­nic­a­tion skills in writ­ten and spoken Eng­lish. Pro­fes­sional work­ing style as well as capa­city for team­work and per­sonal motiv­a­tion are required.

What we of­fer:

The employ­ment con­tract can start as soon as pos­sible and will end latest after three years. The salary is based upon the TV-L rules (EG 13; part-time 50% for Doc­toral Researcher (m/f/d)).

How to ap­ply:

For fur­ther inform­a­tion please con­tact Dr. Hagen Schmidt (

The IFW would like to increase the pro­por­tion of women in sci­ence. Qual­i­fied women are there­fore expli­citly invited to apply. Severely dis­abled applic­ants (m/f/d) are given pref­er­en­tial treat­ment if they have the same qual­i­fic­a­tions.

If you are inter­ested in the pos­i­tion, please send your applic­a­tion (in Eng­lish) includ­ing a CV, a motiv­a­tion let­ter describ­ing the research career goals, skills and exper­i­ence, cop­ies of cer­ti­fic­ates and recom­men-dation let­ters cit­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber DM1001-4/19 not later than 30th of April 2019 as a single pdf file (other formats will not be accep­ted) exclus­ively to:
