Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Electri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring

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.

Chair (W2) of Nano­elec­tro­nic Devices, espe­cially Nano­wires

The posi­tion is to be fil­led as soon as pos­si­ble. This chair is part of the Clus­ter of Excel­lence Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den (cfaed) to sup­port and enhance the aca­de­mic excel­lence of the cfaed.

Work­ing field:

The hol­der of the posi­tion shall be capa­ble of repre­sen­ting the spe­ci­fied area with high dedi­ca­tion in rese­arch as well as in edu­ca­tion. A chal­len­ging, future-ori­en­ted rese­arch pro­gram that covers both foun­da­tio­nal issues and app­li­ca­ti­ons is expec­ted, inclu­ding several of the fol­lo­wing topics:

  • Top-down fabri­ca­tion and bot­tom-up syn­the­sis of sili­con and ger­ma­nium nano­wire mate­ri­als with defi­ned pro­per­ties for elec­tro­nic device app­li­ca­ti­ons. Fur­ther, co-inte­gra­tion of com­pound III-V semi­con­duc­tors in sili­con nano­wires.
  • Hete­ro­ge­neous device inte­gra­tion of com­plex nano­wire struc­tu­res inclu­ding defi­ned inter­faces and solid state reac­tions for con­tact for­ma­tion.
  • Design, fabri­ca­tion and electri­cal cha­rac­te­ri­sa­tion of novel types of tran­sis­tors with sili­con and ger­ma­nium nano­wire mate­ri­als with exten­ded func­tio­na­li­ties bey­ond con­ven­tio­nal CMOS.
  • Con­cep­tion, rea­li­sa­tion and cha­rac­te­ri­sa­tion of novel nano­wire based cir­cuit topo­lo­gies exploit­ing device level recon­fi­gu­ra­tion of func­tions as well as bet­ween power con­sump­tion and per­for­mance.

The teaching res­pon­si­bi­li­ties include cour­ses in the area of emer­ging elec­tro­nic devices and their rela­ted tech­no­lo­gies for study tracks at the Faculty of Electri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring as well as the super­vi­sion of stu­dent the­ses and PhD stu­dents. Fur­ther­more, par­ti­ci­pa­tion in intro­duc­tory cour­ses of the Faculty of Electri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring and for other facul­ties as well sup­port of the inter­na­tio­nal Mas­ter pro­gram Nano­elec­tro­nic Sys­tems is expec­ted. The duties also include par­ti­ci­pa­tion in self-admi­nis­tra­tion and aca­de­mic boards of the Faculty of Electri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring and of TU Dres­den.


The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will be requi­red to inspire our stu­dents as well as to con­duct rese­arch that meets the hig­hest stan­dards of excel­lence cont­ri­bu­ting to the goals and visi­ons of cfaed and to shape the pro­file of the Faculty in a future-ori­en­ted way. The can­di­date should agree with our phi­lo­so­phy to work in an inter­di­sci­pli­nary way, to build new rela­ti­ons­hips wit­hin TU Dres­den and with exter­nal insti­tu­ti­ons, to work in part­nership with indus­try, and to sys­te­ma­ti­cally fos­ter new talents. App­li­cants must have a PhD in Electri­cal Engi­nee­ring or equi­va­lent, a post-doc­to­ral degree (“Habi­li­ta­tion”) or equi­va­lent record of rese­arch and teaching expe­ri­ence, and exten­sive expe­ri­ence in acqui­ring third-party fun­ding as well as pro­ject and group manage­ment. Expe­ri­ence in indus­trial rese­arch is bene­fi­cial. Spe­cial empha­sis is put on high-qua­lity inter­na­tio­nal publi­ca­ti­ons, strong inter­na­tio­nal con­tacts, and inde­pendently acqui­red and suc­cess­fully con­duc­ted rese­arch pro­jects. App­li­cants must ful­fil the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (Hig­her Edu­ca­tion Act of the Free State of Sax­ony – SächsHSFG).

What we of­fer:

TU Dres­den seeks to employ more female pro­fes­sors. Hence we par­ti­cu­larly encou­rage women to apply. App­li­ca­ti­ons from disa­b­led can­di­da­tes or those with addi­tio­nal sup­port needs are wel­come. The Uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a dual career ser­vice. If you have any ques­ti­ons about these topics, please con­tact the Equal Oppor­tu­nities Offi­cer of the Faculty of Electri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring (Dr.-Ing. Kars­ten Back­haus, phone +49 351 463-33608) or the Repre­sen­ta­tive of Employees with Disa­bi­li­ties (Ms. Bir­git Klie­mann, phone +49 351 463-33175).

About cfaed
cfaed is a clus­ter of excel­lence wit­hin the Ger­man Excel­lence Initia­tive. As a cen­tral sci­en­ti­fic unit of TU Dres­den, it brings toge­ther 300 rese­ar­chers from the uni­ver­sity and 10 non-uni­ver­sity rese­arch insti­tu­tes in the areas of Electri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Mate­ri­als Sci­ence, Phy­sics, Che­mis­try, Bio­logy, and Mathe­ma­tics. cfaed addres­ses the advance-ment of elec­tro­nic infor­ma­tion pro­ces­sing sys­tems through explo­ring new tech­no­lo­gies which over­come the limits of today’s pre­do­mi­nant CMOS tech­no­logy.
