Technische Universität Dresden - Cluster of Excellence ‘Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden’ (cfaed), Emmy Noether Research Group ‘Computational Nanoelectronics
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 / Postdoc Position
in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics
(Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
Terms: starting as soon as possible. Funded by an Emmy Noether Junior Research Group this full-time position is limited until 31.05.2018. Subject to the continued third-party funding, the extension of the contract may be possible. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). Balancing family and career is an important issue. The post is basically suitable for candidates seeking part-time employment. The position offers the chance to obtain further academic qualification.
Position and Requirements
The group Computational Nanonelectronics is embedded at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden and Dresden Center for Computational Materials Science, which integrates the activities of more than 20 chairs of TU Dresden and various research centres in Dresden to one of the leading hubs of computational materials research worldwide. We also enjoy the close proximity of collaboration partners at TU Dresden – a great asset in the project.
The successful candidate will advance the theoretical modelling and computer simulations of electronic transport in organic semiconducting materials at the molecular level.
We aim at attracting the best talent in the respective research fields and expect the following:
excellent university (master's/diploma) and Ph.D. degree in theoretical physics or theoretical chemistry
strong expertise in theoretical condensed matter physics with analytical skills as well as in advanced computer simulations
very good communication and writing skills in English
an integrative and cooperative personality with excellent communication and social skills
Knowledge of ab initio simulations and electronic transport methodologies will be of great advantage
What we offer:
You will join a team of enthusiastic scientists who creatively pursue their individual research agenda inspired by the cluster’s innovative approach and support. cfaed does not only offer a highly challenging research environment but also a structured career development program in particular for its young researchers which is unique in academia.
