IHP GmbH - Leib­niz-Insti­tut für inno­va­tive Mikro­elek­tro­nik

IHP is an insti­tute of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation and con­ducts rese­arch and devel­op­ment of sil­icon-based sys­tems and ultra high-fre­quency cir­cuits and tech­no­lo­gies includ­ing new mater­i­als. It devel­ops innov­at­ive solu­tions for app­lic­a­tion areas such as wire­less and broad­band com­mu­nic­a­tion, secur­ity, med­ical tech­no­logy, indus­try 4.0, auto­mot­ive indus­try, and aero­space. IHP employs approx­im­ately 330 people. It oper­ates a pilot line for tech­no­lo­gical devel­op­ments and the pre­par­a­tion of high-speed cir­cuits with 0.13/0.25 μm BiC­MOS tech­no­lo­gies, loc­ated in a 1000 m² class 1 clean­room.

Sci­ent­ist (m/f/d) for CVD growth of SiGe/Si

Work­ing field:

Group IV (SiGe) het­eroep­itaxy pro­vi­des a crit­ical plat­form for vari­ous Si-based tech­no­lo­gies, such as SiGe:C BiC­MOS, Si-Pho­ton­ics and elec­tron spin-based quan­tum com­put­ing approa­ches. The rese­arch is con­duc­ted by an inter-divi­sio­nal rese­arch team con­sist­ing of sci­ent­ists from the Mater­i­als Rese­arch and Tech­no­logy depart­ments.

  • Tack­ling vari­ous growth aspects and engin­eer­ing CVD growth stra­te­gies on 200mm Si wafers
  • Par­ti­cip­at­ing in the struc­tural char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion (SIMS, TEM, XRD etc.) and care­fully eval­u­at­ing the mater­ial qual­ity
  • Sup­port­ing dif­fer­ent Group-IV (i.e. Si, SiGe, Ge)-based rese­arch pro­jects as well as assist­ing to main­tain the over­all epi­taxy pro­cess sta­bil­ity of IHP’s pilot line
  • A PhD degree can be pur­sued and is highly encour­aged


  • Mas­ter degree in phys­ics, mater­i­als sci­ence, chem­istry or sim­ilar
  • Strong back­ground in solid state/semi­con­duc­tor phys­ics and their epi­taxial growth and mater­i­als char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion
  • Ide­ally prac­tical exper­i­ence in the MBE, CVD or MOCVD and CMOS pro­cess tech­no­logy
  • Very good oral and writ­ten skills in Eng­lish (and Ger­man)

What we of­fer:

Do rese­arch in a chal­len­ging, mul­tina­tio­nal envir­on­ment, with excel­lent career pro­spects. You will have the oppor­tun­ity to estab­lish an inter­na­tio­nal repu­ta­tion at the fore­front of high tech. It is import­ant to us to sup­port the indi­vidual career devel­op­ments of our employ­ees (e.g. con­fer­ences, advan­ced train­ings). More inform­a­tion about our sci­ent­i­fic excel­lence and the work­ing envir­on­ment at IHP can be found on our web­site.

IHP seeks to incor­por­ate more women into the sci­ence field. There­fore women are stron­gly encour­aged to apply. Dis­abled app­lic­ants, qual­i­fied accord­ing to the above cri­teria, will be given pref­er­ence over other can­did­ates with equi­val­ent rel­ev­ant qual­i­fic­a­tions.
