PhD or Postdoc position (E 13 TV-L ) - TU Dresden, Germany

At TU Dresden, the Cluster of Excellence 'Center for Advancing
Electronics Dresden' (cfaed) offers a fixed-term

PhD or Postdoc position (E 13 TV-L )
Topic: Development of carbon based contacts and high-k gate dielectrics for CNT transistors

We are looking for a talented PhD student or postdoc to study doped carbon
contacts and optimized gate stacks for carbon nanotube (CNT) transistors.
The PhD project will be part of a technology route to fabricate RF-CNT
transistors and circuits together with partners of the cfaed carbon path. The
work of this position will focus on the deposition, and characterization and
investigation of doped carbon source, drain and gate electrodes with the aim
to achieve tunable work functions. Moreover, tailored high-k gate dielectrics
on CNTs are to be developed and integrated. Additionally, IV and CV
characterization will be carried out to verify the electrical properties of the
dielectrics and carbon contacts as integrated in a CNT transistor.
We aim at attracting the best talent in the respective research fields and
expect the following: an outstanding Master's /PhD degree (or equivalent) in
physics, electronics, materials science  or related; excellent knowledge of
semiconductor devices and microfabrication; outstanding academic
performance in previous studies and some research experience; ability to
work in an international team is essential/mobility; independent and target-
and solution-driven; inter- and multidisciplinary thinking; high motivation and
interest to join one of the most ambitious interdisciplinary research clusters;
an integrative and cooperative personality with excellent communication and
social skills; fluency in English - written and oral.
What we offer
You will join a team of enthusiastic scientists who pursue creatively their
individual research agenda inspired by the cluster's innovative approach and
support. Your PhD-research will be fostered by the cfaed philosophy to
promote young researches which includes: access to state of the art
research of leading academic institutes; international postgraduate program;
individual supervision by a Thesis Advisory Committee; possibility to earn
(seed) grants of up to € 10.000; promotion of gender equality and family-
friendly work environment.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
