Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Clus­ter of Excel­lence ‘Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den’ (cfaed), Emmy Noe­ther inde­pen­dent junior rese­arch group ‘Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Nano­elec­tro­nics’

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD Stu­dent: Theo­re­ti­cal Con­den­sed Mat­ter Phy­sics

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­n­e­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
Terms: sub­ject to resour­ces being avail­able, 50-65% of the full­time weekly hours, the posi­tion may start as soon as pos­si­ble and is limi­ted to three years. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - Wiss­ZeitVG). The posi­tion offers the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD).

Work­ing field:

The group Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Nanon­elec­tro­nics is embed­ded at the Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec-tro­nics Dres­den and Dres­den Cen­ter for Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Mate­ri­als Sci­ence, which inte­gra­tes the activi­ties of more than 20 chairs of TU Dres­den and various rese­arch cen­ters in Dres­den to one of the lea­ding hubs of com­pu­ta­tio­nal mate­ri­als rese­arch world­wide. We also enjoy the close pro­xi­mity to excel­lent col­la­bo­ra­tion part­ners at TU Dres­den – a great asset in the pro­ject.
The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will work on the design of high-per­for­mance orga­nic semi­con­duc­tors based on advan­ced theo­re­ti­cal model­ling and com­pu­ter simu­la­ti­ons of mole­cu­lar mate­ri­als (RHO­DOS pro­ject). A signi­fi­cant part will be code deve­lop­ment. The pro­ject will run in close col­la­bo­ra­tion to exter­nal part­ners, which will sup­port the pro­ject by inves­ti­ga­ting the pre­dic­ted orga­nic semi­con­duc­tors in expe­ri­ments.


We aim at attrac­ting the best talents in the respec­tive rese­arch fields and expect the fol­lo­wing: very good uni­ver­sity degree (M. Sc. Degree) in phy­sics or che­mis­try (theory); strong skills in advan­ced com­pu­ter simu­la­ti­ons and pro­gramming and strong ana­lyti­cal skills; know­ledge of ab ini­tio and/or mole­cu­lar dyna­mics simu­la­ti­ons would be very hel­pful; good com­mu­ni­ca­tion and wri­ting skills in Eng­lish; an inte­gra­tive and coope­ra­tive per­so­na­lity with excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion and social skills.

What we of­fer:

You will join a team of enthu­si­a­s­tic sci­en­tists who crea­tively pur­sue their indi­vi­dual rese­arch agenda inspi­red by the clus­ter’s inno­va­tive approach and sup­port. cfaed does not only offer a highly ins­pi­ring rese­arch envi­ron­ment but also a struc­tu­red career deve­lop­ment pro­gram in par­ti­cu­lar for its young rese­ar­chers which is uni­que in aca­de­mia.
App­li­ca­ti­ons from women are par­ti­cu­larly wel­come. The same app­lies to people with disa­bili-ties.
