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 approx­im­ately 600 people and one focus is on the train­ing of young sci­ent­ists besides enhan­cing fun­da­mental 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. Fur­ther inform­a­tion at:

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research (IFW) Dresden offers as part of a research pro­ject of the com­pet­ence and applic­a­tion Cen­ter for acous­toelec­tronic fun­da­ment­als, tech­no­lo­gies and com­pon­ents (SAW­Lab Sax­ony) from now on a pos­sib­il­ity to employ­ment as a stu­dent assist­ant (m/f/d).

Stu­dent Assist­ant (m/f/d)

Work­ing field:

In the field of SAW-based micro­fluidics, we are work­ing on innov­at­ive approaches for the fab­ric­a­tion of microacous­tic struc­tures, which are used in par­tic­u­lar for the manip­u­la­tion of particles and cells in liquids as well as for sens­ory applic­a­tions.

In par­tic­u­lar, you per­form exper­i­mental work in which microacous­tic and micro­fluidic com­pon­ents are pro­duced and sub­sequently char­ac­ter­ized. The activ­ity includes, in addi­tion to the pro­duc­tion of the indi­vidual com­pon­ents, the high-fre­quency meas­ure­ment of microacous­tic com­pon­ents and the optical ana­lysis by means of micro­scopy.


As a can­did­ate, you study in the field of mater­i­als sci­ence, pro­cess engin­eer­ing, microsys­tems tech­no­logy, elec­trical engin­eer­ing or micro­fluidics and are inter­ested in research­ing a prom­ising lab-on-a-chip tech­no­logy. Advant­age­ous are first exper­i­ences in high-fre­quency meas­ure­ment and optical micro­scopy. The abil­ity to work in a team and the will­ing­ness to con­scien­tious and care­ful work are required.

What we of­fer:

It is also pos­sible to do a mas­ter or dip­loma thesis.

How to ap­ply:

You receive inform­a­tion on, please feel free to con­tact Dr. Robert Weser at

The IFW would like to increase the pro­por­tion of women in sci­ence. Qual­i­fied women are there­fore expli­citly invited to apply. Severely dis­abled applic­ants (m/f/d) are given pref­er­en­tial treat­ment if they have the same qual­i­fic­a­tions.

If you are inter­ested in the pos­i­tion, please send your applic­a­tion (in Eng­lish) includ­ing a CV, a motiv­a­tion let­ter describ­ing the research career goals, skills and exper­i­ence and cop­ies of cer­ti­fic­ates cit­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber (DM1001-2/19) as a single pdf-file (other formats will not be accep­ted) exclus­ively to:
