PhD Posi­tion

Work­ing field:

The PhD can­di­date will work on gro­wing and inves­ti­ga­ting chal­co­ge­nide thin-films with app­li­ca­tion for mem­ris­tive devices. This pro­ject is part of the SFB 917 Nanos­wit­ches ( Hence, the can­di­date has the pos­si­bi­lity to inter­act with many well-estab­lished sci­en­tists. The goal of the pre­sent pro­ject is to grow very thin chal­co­ge­nide films by con­trol­ling their struc­ture and com­po­si­tion and sub­se­quently inves­ti­gate the resul­ting pro­per­ties of the sam­ples uti­li­zing a variety of tech­ni­ques. We have evi­dence that such films will show a plethora of fasci­na­ting pro­per­ties, which are important for tech­no­lo­gi­cal app­li­ca­ti­ons as well as a fun­da­men­tal under­stan­ding of struc­ture – pro­perty rela­ti­ons­hips.

Excel­lent Eng­lish skills are man­datory. Moreo­ver, the can­di­date will be sur­roun­ded by state-of-the art equip­ment and very fri­endly, moti­va­ted, and skil­led col­leagues.
