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.
