Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den, Chair of Mole­cu­lar Func­tio­nal Mate­ri­als

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

For the DFG “MXene –orga­nic semi­con­duc­tor blends for high-mobi­lity prin­ted orga­nic elec­tro­nic devices” (MX-OSMO­PED) the Chair of Mole­cu­lar Func­tio­nal Mate­ri­als offers a posi­tion as
Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD Stu­dent (sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­n­e­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L).

Rese­arch area: Syn­the­sis and func­tio­na­liza­t­ion of new 2D mate­ri­als
Inves­ti­ga­tors: Prof. Dr. Xin­liang Feng
rese­arch path: Orga­nic/Poly­mer Path
Terms: 50 % of the full­time weekly hours, star­ting Janu­ary 1, 2019, limi­ted until May 31, 2021. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed-Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz – Wiss­ZeitVG).

Work­ing field:

The DFG Pro­ject encou­ra­ges the hig­hest qua­lity rese­arch in Europe through com­pe­ti­tive fun­ding and by sup­porting inves­ti­ga­tor-dri­ven fron­tier rese­arch on the basis of sci­en­ti­fic excel­lence. The pro­ject allows rese­ar­chers to iden­tify new oppor­tu­nities and tries to fund new and pro­mi­sing topics with a great degree of fle­xi­bi­lity. Ulti­mately, with this pro­ject we would like to address the needs of a know­ledge-based society and pro­vide Europe with the capa­bi­li­ties in fron­tier rese­arch necessary to meet glo­bal chal­len­ges.
Wit­hin this pro­ject, the Chair of Mole­cu­lar Func­tio­nal Mate­ri­als is focu­sed on the app­li­ca­ti­ons of new 2D mate­ri­als dedi­ca­ted to elec­tro­nic app­li­ca­ti­ons.
The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will be res­pon­si­ble for: exfo­lia­tion and func­tio­na­liza­t­ion of gra­phene and 2D mate­ri­als; opti­miza­t­ion of Exfo­lia­tion/func­tio­na­liza­t­ion con­di­ti­ons to increase pro­duc­tion rate; for­mu­la­tion of gra­phene/2D mate­ri­als in dif­fe­rent matrix e.g. Inks and poly­mer com­po­si­tes; cha­rac­te­riza­t­ion of gra­phene/2D mate­ri­als via AFM, RAMAN, SEM; orga­niza­t­io­nal tasks wit­hin the pro­ject.


We aim at attrac­ting the best talent in the respec­tive rese­arch fields and expect the fol­lo­wing: an out­stan­ding uni­ver­sity degree in orga­nic che­mis­try, poly­mer che­mis­try or simi­lar; pre­vious expe­ri­ence in inor­ga­nic che­mis­try and orga­nic/poly­mer syn­the­sis; very good inter­per­so­nal and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills; in par­ti­cu­lar, the ability to effec­tively work in col­la­bo­ra­tive rese­arch efforts; an inde­pen­dent, tar­get- and solu­tion-dri­ven work atti­tude; inter- and mul­ti­di­sci­pli­nary thin­king; strong moti­va­tion and inte­rest to join one of the most ambi­tious inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch clus­ters; flu­ency in Eng­lish - writ­ten and oral.

What we of­fer:

You will join a team of enthu­si­a­s­tic sci­en­tists who pur­sue crea­tively their indi­vi­dual rese­arch agenda inspi­red by the clus­ter’s inno­va­tive approach and sup­port. Your rese­arch will be fos­te­red by the cfaed phi­lo­so­phy to pro­mote young rese­ar­chers, which inclu­des: access to state of the art rese­arch of lea­ding aca­de­mic insti­tu­tes; pro­mo­tion of gen­der equa­lity and family-fri­endly work envi­ron­ment.

App­li­ca­ti­ons from women are par­ti­cu­larly wel­come. The same app­lies to people with disa­bi­li­ties.

About cfaed
cfaed is a clus­ter of excel­lence wit­hin the Ger­man Excel­lence Initia­tive. As a cen­tral sci­en­ti­fic unit of TU Dres­den, it brings toge­ther 300 rese­ar­chers from the uni­ver­sity and 10 other rese­arch insti­tu­tes in the areas of Electri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Mate­ri­als Sci­ence, Phy­sics, Che­mis­try, Bio­logy, and Mathe­ma­tics. cfaed addres­ses the advan­ce­ment of elec­tro­nic infor­ma­tion pro­ces­sing sys­tems through explo­ring new tech­no­lo­gies which over­come the limits of today’s pre­do­mi­nant CMOS tech­no­logy.

TU Dres­den
The TU Dres­den is among the top uni­ver­si­ties in Ger­many and Europe and one of the ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an ‘elite uni­ver­sity’ in June 2012. As a modern full-sta­tus uni­ver­sity with 14 depart­ments it offers a wide aca­de­mic range making it one of a very few in Ger­many.
