Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Sci­ence, Depart­ment of Phy­sics, Insti­tute of App­lied Phy­sics, Chair of Expe­ri­men­tal Phy­sics / Pho­to­phy­sics

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 Fel­low
in the area of “Magne­tic-Force Micro­scopy of non-col­li­near magne­tic pha­ses”

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­n­e­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
Star­ting at the next pos­si­ble date, the posi­tion ent­ails 50% of the full­time weekly hours, and can be fil­led for a dura­tion of 36 months. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz-Wiss­ZeitVG). The posi­tion offers the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD).

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will be res­pon­si­ble for the micro­sco­pic inves­ti­ga­tion of magneto-electric cou­pling pheno­mena in the multi-fer­roic skyr­mion-host mate­rial GaV4S8, as well as rela­ted com­pounds, using dif­fe­rent scan­ning probe methods [inclu­ding magne­tic force micro­scopy (MFM), Kel­vin-probe force micro­scopy (KPFM), piezo-res­ponse force micro­scopy (PFM), and near-field scat­te­ring opti­cal micro­scopy (NSOM)]. The duties and res­pon­si­bi­li­ties cover work in clean-room envi­ron­ment, using cryo­ge­nic liquids (LN2 and LHe), as well as app­ly­ing various laser-light sour­ces. The sub­ject allows the can­di­date to become sci­en­ti­fi­cally com­pe­ti­tive on an inter­na­tio­nal level through peer-reviewed publi­ca­ti­ons and con­fe­rence cont­ri­bu­ti­ons. More­o­ver, the posi­tion also inclu­des super­vi­sing diploma, Mas­ters, and Bache­lor stu­dents.


  • excel­lent uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, dip­loma or equi­val­ent) in phys­ics
  • exper­i­ence and deep under­stand­ing in the fields of mag­net­ism or low-tem­per­at­ure scan­ning force micro­scopy
  • very good inter­per­sonal and com­mu­nic­a­tion skills
  • an inde­pend­ent, tar­get- and solu­tion-driven work atti­tude
  • flu­ent Eng­lish both oral and writ­ten
