IFW Dres­den

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.

Work­ing field:

You real­ize and qual­ify the exper­i­mental setup. There­fore, you can refer to pre­vi­ous work and exist­ing expert­ise of the work­ing group. In addi­tion to the exper­i­mental setup, the activ­ity includes the applic­a­tion of dif­fer­ent pre­par­a­tion and meas­ure­ment meth­ods (elec­trical and optical char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of the SAW com­pon­ents and micro­fluidic struc­tures). In addi­tion, invest­ig­a­tions are to be car­ried out on vari­ous para­met­ers that influ­ence the droplet gen­er­a­tion.


As an applic­ant (m/f/d), you study elec­trical engin­eer­ing, mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing, pro­cess engin­eer­ing or mater­i­als sci­ence. Advant­age­ous are first exper­i­ences in optical micro­scopy and exper­i­ment­a­tion. The abil­ity to work in a team and the will­ing­ness to con­scien­tious and care­ful work are required.

What we of­fer:

Within the SAW­Lab Sax­ony we are work­ing on innov­at­ive micro-actu­ator con­cepts based on sur­face acous­tic waves (SAW). The SAW actu­at­ors are used in micro­fluidics (e.g. for the gen­er­a­tion of air­borne droplets). For this pur­pose, an exper­i­mental setup has to be real­ized as well as invest­ig­a­tions on the SAW-based droplet gen­er­a­tion need to be per­formed. In the con­text of employ­ment as a stu­dent assist­ant com­pens­a­tion is pos­sible.
