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.

2 Rese­arch Asso­cia­tes / PhD stu­dents

For the pro­ject “Bot­tom-Up genera­tion of ato­mi­c­ally pre­cise syn­the­tic 2D mate­ri­als for high per­for­mance in energy and elec­tro­nic app­li­ca­ti­ons” ULTI­MATE at TU Dres­den, Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den, the Chair of Mole­cu­lar Func­tio­nal Mate­ri­als offers the fol­lo­wing posi­ti­ons:

2 Rese­arch Asso­cia­tes / PhD stu­dents

Rese­arch area: Orga­nic syn­the­sis of 2D poly­mers and gra­phene for optoelec­tro­nics app­li­ca­ti­ons
Inves­ti­ga­tors: Prof. Dr. Xin­liang Feng
rese­arch path: Orga­nic/Poly­mer Path

Terms: 50 % of the full­time wee­kly hours for PhD stu­dents, star­ting Octo­ber 1, 2019 until 30.09.2022.
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:

Wit­hin this European Pro­ject, the Chair of Mole­cu­lar Func­tio­nal Mate­ri­als is focu­sed on the syn­the­sis and pro­duc­tion of 2D poly­mers and gra­phene mate­ri­als which emerge as out­stan­ding can­di­da­tes for a great num­ber of elec­tro­nic app­li­ca­ti­ons. The goal of this rese­arch is to syn­the­size gra­phene mole­cu­les and 2D poly­mers bea­ring elec­tro­nic func­tions.
The suc­cess­ful can­di­da­tes will be respon­si­ble for: Design and bot­tom-up orga­nic syn­the­sis of gra­phene mole­cu­les and 2D poly­mers with novel edge struc­tures; solu­tion and inter­face che­mi­stry will be invol­ved.


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 orga­nic or 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 as well as an indi­vi­dual the­sis advi­sory com­mit­tee (TAC) for PhD stu­dents.

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

How to ap­ply:

Your app­li­ca­tion (in Eng­lish only) should include: moti­va­tion let­ter, CV, copy of degree cer­ti­fi­cate and proof of Eng­lish lan­guage skills.
Com­plete app­li­ca­ti­ons should be sub­mit­ted pre­fer­a­bly pre­fer­a­bly via the TU Dres­den Secu­re­Mail Por­tal by sen­ding it as a sin­gle pdf docu­ment quo­ting the refe­rence 1906_ULTI­MATE in the sub­ject hea­der to or by post to: TU Dres­den, cfaed, Prof. Xin­liang Feng, Helm­holtz­str. 10, 01069 Dres­den. The clo­sing date for app­li­ca­ti­ons is 25.07.2019 (stam­ped arri­val date of the uni­ver­sity cen­tral mail ser­vice app­lies). Please sub­mit copies only, as your app­li­ca­tion will not be retur­ned to you. Expen­ses incur­red in atten­ding inter­views can­not be reim­bur­sed.

About cfaed
cfaed is a cen­tral aca­de­mic unit of TU Dres­den and 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 18 facul­ties it offers a wide aca­de­mic range making it one of a very few in Ger­many.
