Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Mecha­ni­cal Sci­ence and Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Mate­ri­als Sci­ence, Chair of Mate­ri­als Sci­ence and Nano­tech­no­logy

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 EU-fun­ded research pro­ject Bot­tom-Up gen­er­a­tion of atom­ic­ally pre­cise syn­theTIc 2D MATer­i­als for high per­form­ance in energy and Elec­tronic applic­a­tions (ULTI­MATE) the Insti­tute of Mater­i­als Sci­ence, Chair of Mater­i­als Sci­ence and Nan­o­tech­no­logy offers a pos­i­tion as Research Asso­ci­ate / PhD stu­dent (Sub­ject to per­sonal qual­i­fic­a­tion employ­ees are remu­ner­ated accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L).
The pos­i­tion will start at 01.01.2020. The fixed-term pos­i­tion is for 3 years. The period of employ­ment is gov­erned by the Fixed Term Research Con­tracts Acts (Wis­senschaft­szeitver­trags­ge­setz - Wis­sZeitVG). The pos­i­tion aims at obtain­ing fur­ther aca­demic qual­i­fic­a­tion (e.g. PhD).

Work­ing field:

The EU Marie Skło­dow­ska-Curie Innov­at­ive Train­ing Net­work ULTI­MATE 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.
The pos­i­tion is embed­ded in a coo­per­at­ive rese­arch pro­ject fun­ded by the European Union which aims to syn­thes­ize and under­stand novel atom­ic­ally pre­cise 2D mater­i­als and to find ways to exploit their uni­que and tune­able prop­er­ties for elec­tron­ics and energy app­lic­a­tions. Fur­ther­more, it will be embed­ded wit­hin the Dres­den Cen­ter for Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Mater­i­als Sci­ence (DCMS) and stron­gly inter­act­ing with its more than 70 mem­bers. The Cen­ter aims at fos­ter­ing and clus­ter­ing the activ­it­ies rela­ted to mater­i­als mod­el­ing and sim­u­la­tions in the Dres­den region. For more inform­a­tion, please refer to and
The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will use mod­ern approa­ches of com­pu­ta­tio­nal mater­i­als sci­ence in com­bin­a­tion with effi­cient meth­ods for data ana­lysis to com­pute and pre­dict prop­er­ties of syn­the­tic 2D mater­i­als in close col­lab­or­a­tion with exper­i­men­tal groups in Europe.


An excel­lent uni­ver­sity degree in Phy­sics, Che­mi­stry, Mate­ri­als Sci­ence, or a clo­sely rela­ted area is requi­red, as well as excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion and wri­ting skills in Eng­lish. Fur­ther­more, per­so­nal initia­tive, inde­pen­dent work, as well as the abi­lity to work in a team are necessary. Expe­ri­ence in com­pu­ta­tio­nal mate­rial sci­ence (DFT, advan­ced MD) is desi­ra­ble. Exem­pli­fy­ing your pro­gramming skills using a Git­Hub or Hack­er­Rank (or simi­lar) pro­file is stron­gly encou­ra­ged. 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 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 the Chair
The sci­en­ti­fic activi­ties of the Chair of Mate­ri­als Sci­ence and Nano­tech­no­logy (Prof. Dr. G. Cuni­berti) are focu­sed on deve­lo­ping non-con­ven­tio­nal stra­te­gies for novel mate­ri­als and devices with intrin­sic nanos­cale com­ple­xity. Please visit for more infor­ma­tion on our activi­ties.

About DCMS
Dres­den is a lea­ding cen­ter of mate­ri­als rese­arch in Europe and world­wide. To fos­ter the activi­ties in the field of mate­ri­als mode­ling and simu­la­ti­ons, the Dres­den Cen­ter for Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Mate­ri­als Sci­ence (DCMS) has been estab­lished to join the com­pe­ten­ces of more than 70 rese­ar­chers active at several TU Dres­den facul­ties (e.g. Mecha­ni­cal Sci­ence and Engi­nee­ring, Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Phy­sics, Che­mi­stry) and at a large num­ber of rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in Dres­den and Sax­ony. Our mem­bers pos­sess broad exper­tise in the simu­la­tion of mate­ri­als pro­per­ties ran­ging from stu­dies on the pico- and nano­me­ter scale up to the mode­ling of mate­ri­als at the microscale and bey­ond.

About 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.
