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.
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).
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
