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. It is con­cerned with mod­ern mater­i­als sci­ence and com­bines explor­at­ive research in phys­ics, chem­istry and mater­i­als sci­ence with tech­no­lo­gical devel­op­ment of new mater­i­als and products. The IFW employs about 600 people and besides enhan­cing fun­da­mental and applied research devel­op­ment one focus is on the train­ing of young sci­ent­ists. Fur­ther inform­a­tion at:

PhD-Pos­i­tion - Mag­netic tex­tures for prob­ing nano-func­tion­al­ized mag­netic molecules

Work­ing field:

The Insti­tute of Metal­lic Mater­i­als at the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden (IFW Dresden) offers a PhD pos­i­tion embed­ded in the IFW Excel­lence Pro­gram “Mag­netic tex­tures for prob­ing of nano-scale dynam­ics”, start­ing in May 2018.

We are look­ing for can­did­ates for devel­op­ing a novel sensor approach based on dynamic mag­netic tex­tures to probe mech­an­ical prop­er­ties of nano-func­tion­al­ized mag­netic molecules. These Giant Mag­neto Imped­ance (GMI) sensors are real­ized by rolled-up mag­netic film archi­tec­tures with unique mag­netic prop­er­ties. The tasks of the selec­ted can­did­ate is the micro­mag­netic sim­u­la­tion and micro­scopic obser­va­tion with ac-mod­u­lated mag­netic force micro­scopy (AC-MFM) of these mag­netic micro and nano­struc­tures. The sens­ing cap­ab­il­it­ies will be char­ac­ter­ized by meas­ur­ing the imped­ance spec­tra in the pres­ence of well-defined local mag­netic fields gen­er­ated by a mag­netic tip.

For fur­ther inform­a­tion please con­tact:
Dr. Volker Neu ( or Dr. Jorge A. Otal­ora (


Poten­tial Can­did­ates should hold a Mas­ters or Dip­loma degree in Phys­ics or Mater­i­als Sci­ence and should have proven exper­i­mental skills and a good back­ground in numer­ical mag­net­ism.

What we of­fer:

The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to 12 months with the pos­sib­il­ity of renewal for 2 more years. The salary is based upon the TV-L rules.
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.

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

How to ap­ply:

Applic­a­tion includ­ing a CV, a motiv­a­tion let­ter describ­ing the research career goals, skills and exper­i­ence, cop­ies of cer­ti­fic­ates should be sent cit­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber DM2102-2/18 no later than April 5th, 2018 as a single pdf-file to:
