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.

Student assistant job (m/f/d)
Fabrication of MEMS-based thermoelectric devices for energy harvesting
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.
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 ( firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 0351-46591817)
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.
