Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Fest­kör­per- und Werk­stoff­for­schung Dres­den e.V.

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden – in short IFW Dresden – is a non-uni­versity research insti­tute and a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation. The IFW employs approxi-mately 600 people and one focus is on the train­ing of young sci­ent­ists besides enhan­cing fun­da­men-tal and applied research devel­op­ment. At the highest inter­na­tional level, the IFW oper­ates mod­ern mater­i­als sci­ence on a sci­entific basis and makes the obtained res­ults use­ful for the eco­nomy. The com­plex and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research work is car­ried out within the IFW by five sci­entific insti­tutes, which are sup­por­ted by a highly developed tech­nical infra­struc­ture. The IFW sup­ports its employ­ees in recon­cil­ing work and fam­ily life and reg­u­larly sub­mits to the beru­fund­fam­ilie® audit.

Fab­ric­a­tion of MEMS-based ther­mo­elec­tric devices for energy har­vest­ing

Work­ing field:

Ther­mo­elec­tric gen­er­at­ors (TEG) have been widely util­ized to con­vert waste heat into elec­trical energy. Micro-TEG can be man­u­fac­tured by micro­fab­ric­a­tion/MEMS tech­no­lo­gies, which owns advant­ages of small size, low cost and high integ­ra­tion with sensor & ASIC sys­tems.

Your tasks:
  • Fab­ric­a­tion of MEMS-based TEG by mainly using elec­tro-chem­ical depos­ition (ECD) and pho­to­litho­graphy
  • Optim­iz­a­tion of ECD setup & pro­cess, such as repro­du­cib­il­ity, fab­ric­a­tion yield, depos­ition rate & uni­form­ity, etc.
  • Device char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion: per­form­ance of ther­mo­elec­tric mater­i­als and metal con­tact inter­faces.

For more inform­a­tion please feel free to con­tact Dr. Kangfa Deng (, phone 0351-46591817)


Your pro­file:
  • Edu­ca­tion back­ground in elec­tronic engin­eer­ing, microsys­tems tech­no­logy, mater­ial sci­ence or rel­ev­ant sub­jects.
  • Know­ledge of MEMS tech­no­logy, ECD pro­cess, sensor char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion
  • High-motiv­a­tion, good ana­lyt­ical and prob­lem-solv­ing skills
  • Good com­mu­nic­a­tion skills in Eng­lish

What we of­fer:

The Insti­tute for Metal­lic Mater­i­als (Prof. K. Nielsch) of the IFW Dresden offers a stu­dent assist­ant job in the Depart­ment of Ther­mo­elec­tric Mater­i­als and Devices start­ing as soon as pos­sible. Employ­ment is ini­tially lim­ited to 6 months.

The insti­tute pro­motes the pro­fes­sional equal­ity between all genders. In sci­ence, the IFW Dresden would like to increase the pro­por­tion of woman. Qual­i­fied women are there­fore expli­citly invited to apply.
Equally qual­i­fied han­di­capped applic­ants will be given pref­er­ence.

How to ap­ply:

If you are inter­ested in the pos­i­tion, please send your applic­a­tion (in Eng­lish) includ­ing a CV, a moti-vation let­ter and cur­rent cer­ti­fic­ate of enroll­ment, quot­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber A2000-SHK1/2019 as a single pdf file (other formats will not be accep­ted) exclus­ively to:
