Post-doc­toral Fel­lows in Solid State Chem­istry at Technical University Dresden, Germany

Post-doc­toral Fel­lows in Solid State Chem­istry is provided by Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids.

The Solid State Chem­istry Group (Prof. Dr. C. Fel­ser) of the Max Planck Insti­tute for Chem­ical Phys­ics of Solids in Dres­den, Ger­many is world lead­ing in rese­arch on inter­metal­lic Heus­ler com­pounds with app­lic­a­tions in the areas of Spin­tron­ics, mag­netic mater­i­als, topo­lo­gical mater­i­als, ther­mo­elec­tric mater­i­als, super­con­duct­ors, and many more.



Scholarships Number and Award:

Two pos­i­tions con­cern the thin film growth as main empha­sis and a third one is ded­ic­ated to their ana­lysis and char­ac­ter­isa­tion.
You will par­ti­cip­ate in the ongo­ing in-house rese­arch pro­gramme and will be encour­aged to deve­lop your per­sonal rese­arch pro­gramme in emer­ging areas of con­den­sed mat­ter phys­ics and mater­i­als sci­ence.

Our working conditions

-Con­tract of 24 months, renew­able for a fur­ther 12 to 36-month period.

-The salary will be accord­ing to the con­di­tions of the Ger­man fed­eral labour agree­ment (entry level TVöD-13).

-The MPI-CPFS is an equal opportunity employer and encour­ages diver­sity.


Education Level & Subject:

Fellowships are awarded in Solid State Chemistry in the field of Thin Inter­metal­lic Films of Heus­ler Com­pounds for Spin­tron­ics and Topo­lo­gical Phe­nom­ena.



-International students are eligible to apply for this scholarship programme.

-PhD in phys­ics, chem­istry, mater­i­als, or clo­sely rela­ted sci­ence obtai­ned less than 3 years ago,

-a strong back­ground in thin film tech­niques is essen­tial,

-Pro­fi­ciency with other com­ple­ment­ary labor­at­ory tech­niques as men­tio­ned above is desir­able,

-Exper­i­ence with rese­arch at large scale facil­it­ies,

-Abil­ity to inter­act with multi-dis­cip­lin­ary staff at the bor­der bet­ween phys­ics and chem­istry,

-Good time man­age­ment skills and abil­ity to pri­or­it­ize,

-Eng­lish pro­fi­ciency (work­ing lan­guage in the group), Ger­man is of advant­age for com­mu­nic­a­tion with our tech­nical per­sonal.
