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.
