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. The IFW employs approxi-mately 600 people and one focus is on the train­ing of young sci­ent­ists besides enhan­cing fun­da­men-tal 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 Research Pos­i­tion (female/male)
Integ­rated quantum dot devices

Work­ing field:

The Insti­tute for Integ­rat­ive Nanos­ciences (IIN), Leib­niz IFW Dresden e.V. is one of the world lead­ers in the domain of strain-induced nano-archi­tec­tures and provided pion­eer­ing con­tri­bu­tions to the design, fab­ric­a­tion and char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of self-assembled quantum dots, super­lat­tices and rolled-up nano-struc­tures. We seek for new strategies to integ­rate and func­tion­al­ize nano­struc­tures on a single chip.

As one of the prot­ag­on­ists in con­trolling the spa­tial and spec­tral prop­er­ties of self-assembled single quantum dots, we aim to push the research on quantum dot based single photon and entangled pho-ton sources to the next level. A num­ber of crit­ical chal­lenges remain towards an ideal, applic­a­tion ready photonic device. This will be an excel­lent topic for a PhD stu­dent. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will receive a sys­tem­atic train­ing in this field and have access to a num­ber of state-of-the-art R&D techni-ques.
For more detailled inform­a­tion please con­tact dir­ectly Pro­fessor Dr. Oliver G. Schmidt (


Suc­cess­ful can­did­ates should have a Mas­ter's degree or Dip­loma in either phys­ics, mater­ial sci­ence or optical engin­eer­ing, who are inter­ested in inter­dis­cip­lin­ary, applied research and act­ive con­tri­bu­tion with own ideas into the team. High motiv­a­tion and good com­mu­nic­a­tion skills in Eng­lish (spoken and writ­ten) are expec­ted.

What we of­fer:

We offer a Doc­toral Research Pos­i­tion (female/male) start­ing as soon as pos­sible.
The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to 12 months with the pos­sib­il­ity of renewal for 2 fur­ther years. The salary is based upon the TV-L rules (EG 13; 50%).

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:

The applic­a­tion should include a cover let­ter, a detailed CV, the study records and the con­tact infor-mation of your ref­er­ees. We will invite qual­i­fied can­did­ates for on-site inter­views. Please give the fol­low­ing ref­er­ence num­ber (A4000-2/18) and send your applic­a­tion not later than 15 of August, 2018 as a single pdf file exclus­ively to:
