The Department of Physics offers in its centre for NanoScience a
paid for a three year period according to Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L/ 50%.
Research will be focused on the preparation and highest resolution imaging on diamond surfaces with dynamic scanning force microscopy in the ultra-high vacuum in the framework of the project "Spin quantum computing based on endohedral fullerenes with integrated single-spin read-out via nitrogen vacancy centres in diamond" funded by the VolkswagenStiftung. Surface preparation will include the controlled creation of defects by ion implantation and the deposition of endohedral fullerenes. Employees will have the opportunity to earn a doctorate beside work.
Applicants should hold a Masters or Diploma degree in physics or a neighbouring discipline. Experience with the operation of ultra-high vacuum equipment and raster scanning techniques is most welcome but not prerequisite.
The Universität Osnabrück offers an excellent research infrastructure and a cooperative working environment. The project is well funded and embedded into international cooperations. Extensive support for PhD students is offered by the International Graduate School of Science at the Universität Osnabrück.
The University of Osnabrück seeks to increase the number of female scientists and encourages them to apply.
Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status.
Letters of application together with detailed application documents should be sent before April 6th 2009 to Prof. Michael Reichling, Fachbereich Physik, Universität Osnabrück, 49069, Osnabrück, Germany. For inquiries, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
