The group of Nanotechnology at the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK), Freiburg University, Germany is offering an immediate opening for a PhD position (E13/2)
Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) enables the deposition of ultra thin layers and a homogenous and three-dimensional deposition over smallest nanostructures. This facilitates the controlled change of surfaces and surface properties. The laboratory of nanotechnology installed two new ALD systems and a PECVD system in the clean room which are used for different projects including growth of nanocrystals and nanowires and their functionalization. Experimental work will concentrate on the development of new ALD processes as well as designing and testing of new metal organic precursor materials. One goal will be to use ALD processes for doping of nanostructures. We are looking for candidates with a strong background in solid state physics, metal organic chemistry, microelectronic engineering or nanoelectronics.
The University of Freiburg is one of the nine “excellence” Universities in Germany. The IMTEK at Freiburg has a research community that provides excellent opportunities for career development. The Laboratory of Nanotechnology is newly established and offers top level research activities in fields like nanocrystals, nanowires, and ALD; for more information see: http://www.imtek.de/nanotechnologie/index_en.php
Interested candidates should submit CV, certificates of the study, a publication list and the names of 2 referees.
