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

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden e. V. – in short IFW Dresden – is a non-uni­versity research insti­tute and a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation. The IFW employs appro-xim­ately 600 people and one focus is on the train­ing of young sci­ent­ists besides enhan­cing funda-men­tal 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.

Doc­toral Researcher Pos­i­tion (m/f/d)

in the area of super­con­duct­ing thin films

Work­ing field:

The main emphasis of the work is to char­ac­ter­ize the cor­rel­a­tion between struc­tural and func­tional prop­er­ties of high tem­per­at­ure super­con­duct­ing thin films grown on indus­tri­ally fab­ric­ated tex­tured tem­plates. The PhD pro­ject is part of a DFG fun­ded pro­ject in col­lab­or­a­tion with a research group at the TU Wien (Vienna, Aus­tria).


Poten­tial can­did­ates should hold a Mas­ters or Dip­loma degree in Mater­i­als Sci­ence or Phys­ics and must show strong know­ledge in solid state phys­ics and exper­i­mental research. Prefer­ably, the applic­ant has also exper­i­ence in one or more of the fol­low­ing topic: thin film depos­ition tech­niques, epi­taxial growth, super­con­duct­ing mater­i­als, and struc­tural char­ac­ter­isa­tion with X-ray and elec­tron beam tech­niques. We are look­ing for a can­did­ate with pro­nounced ini­ti­at­ive, cre­ativ­ity, abil­ity to work effect­ively in a team, as well as flu­ency of writ­ten and spoken Eng­lish.

What we of­fer:

The research group “Func­tional Oxides and Super­con­duct­ors” of the Insti­tute of Metal­lic Mater­i­als at the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden (IFW Dresden) offers a PhD pos­i­tion in the field of epi­taxial thin films using pulsed laser depos­ition start­ing from Septem­ber 2019.

The employ­ment con­tract is primar­ily lim­ited to 12 months and will be exten­ded by another 2 years upon a suc­cess­ful mid-term eval­u­ation. The salary is based upon the TV-L rules (62,5%; E13).
PhD can­did­ates are facil­it­ated to par­ti­cip­ate in the PhD pro­gram to suc­cess­fully com­plete their dis­ser­ta­tion. We offer an attract­ive work place with excel­lent facil­it­ies and envir­on­ment in Dresden. Fur­ther inform­a­tion at:

The insti­tute pro­motes the pro­fes­sional equal­ity between all genders. In sci­ence, the IFW Dresden would like to increase the pro­por­tion of woman. Qual­i­fied women are there­fore expli­citly invited to apply.
Equally qual­i­fied han­di­capped applic­ants will be given pref­er­ence.

How to ap­ply:

Please send your applic­a­tion (in Eng­lish or Ger­man) includ­ing a cover let­ter with motiv­a­tional state-ment, CV, cop­ies of cer­ti­fic­ates and other rel­ev­ant mater­ial (if applic­able) quot­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber DM2105-1-DFG/19 in a single PDF file (other formats will not be accep­ted) exclus­ively to:
