At the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle (Saale),
Germany, we have recently built a state-of-the-art apparatus for the
fabrication of 3D micro- and nano-structures, and have already achieved very
We are currently looking for Ph.D. candidates (f/m/d) who are interested in
related research on 3D electronics.
The candidate will be introduced to:
design, fabrication and characterization of 3D devices, from device
conception, to design iteration, and measurements, in collaboration with
other colleagues where necessary,
contributing to an inclusive and dynamic team-working environment.
The candidate should be highly creative, proactive, self-motivated and capable
of independent work towards beyond state-of-the-art objectives. Active
participation and engagement in the research activities of the group is highly
We seek candidates with:
a background in Physics, preferably with specific knowledge in either
spintronics or optoelectronics,
programming skills are highly beneficial, specifically Python and/or C++,
3D CAD design is beneficial but not required.
access to state-of-the-art facilities for 3D device fabrication and
an open and engaging working environment addressing some of the most
impactful problems in the field with the freedom to contribute your ideas
to solve high-impact problems,
remuneration amounting to 65% EG13 TVöD-Bund.
All necessary training will be carried out after admission.
The starting date is flexible but should not be later than January 2022.
The Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics gives priority to
applications from severely disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications.
Furthermore, we strive to increase the proportion of female employees and
therefore specifically encourage women to apply.
