Work­ing field:

The sci­en­ti­fic activi­ties of the Chair Mate­ri­als Sci­ence and Nano­tech­no­logy at TU Dres­den are focu­sed on deve­lo­ping non-con­ven­tio­nal stra­te­gies for inno­va­tive mate­ri­als and devices with intrin­sic nanos­cale com­ple­xity.
The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will be inte­gra­ted in our Bioelec­tro­nics Rese­arch Group and work in close col­la­bo­ra­tion with the rese­arch teams at the Max Berg­mann Cen­ter of Bio­ma­te­ri­als ( The task will also include the review of the sci­en­ti­fic pro­gress of the rese­arch group, an active role in the coope­ra­tion with inter­nal and exter­nal aca­de­mic and indus­trial part­ners, the acqui­si­tion of third party grants and the assi­s­tance in the tea­ching activi­ties of the Chair. The can­di­date is expec­ted to pur­sue her/his habi­li­ta­tion at our Chair to fur­ther shape her/his pro­file for an excel­lent sci­en­ti­fic career.


For a suc­cess­ful app­li­ca­tion an uni­ver­sity degree and aca­de­mic doc­to­rate is requi­red, pre­fer­a­bly in Phy­sics, Bio­logy, Che­mi­stry, Mate­ri­als Sci­ence or Elec­tri­cal Engi­nee­ring. Pre­vious expe­ri­ence in sen­sor tech­no­logy with a spe­cial focus on e.g. neu­ro­mor­phic sen­sor engi­nee­ring, sen­sor data inte­gra­tion and eva­lua­tion or mul­ti­plex signal pro­ces­sing are con­si­de­red as pre­fe­ren­tial. Fur­ther­more, per­so­nal initia­tive, inde­pen­dent work, as well as the abi­lity for team-ori­en­ted rese­arch are necessary, as well as excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion and wri­ting skills in Eng­lish. We tar­get at top-notch dedi­ca­ted and proac­tive young sci­en­tists who plan to make their mark in sci­ence.

What we of­fer:

You will join a team of enthu­si­astic sci­en­tists who pur­sue crea­tively their indi­vi­dual rese­arch agenda inspi­red by the Chair’s inno­va­tive approach and sup­port. Your rese­arch envi­ron­ment will include the access to state of the art rese­arch faci­li­ties and instru­ments and your work will be stron­gly bene­fit from a dense rese­arch net­work with lea­ding insti­tu­ti­ons in Dres­den. We are com­mit­ted to the pro­mo­tion of gen­der equa­lity and a family-fri­endly working envi­ron­ment.
