Job-ID: 0076/23 | Department: Materials Research | Salary: as per tariff (TV-L) | Working Time: 40h/week (part-time work option) |
Limitation: initially 2 years with option of extension for three more years | Starting Date: as soon as possible

IHP is an institute of the Leibniz Association and conducts research and development of silicon-based systems and ultra high-frequency circuits and technologies including new materials. It develops innovative solutions for application areas such as wireless and broadband communication, security, medical technology, industry 4.0, automotive industry, and aerospace. IHP employs approximately 380 people. It operates a pilot line for technological developments and the preparation of high-speed circuits with 0.13/0.25 µm-SiGe-BiCMOS technologies, located in a 1500 m² cleanroom that meets the highest industrial nanotechnology requirements.

The position:

As a member of the research team “Semiconductor Optoelectronics” within the department Materials Research you will contribute to research into the field of plasmonic devices for sensing. Your tasks will include the design of plasmonic nano-antennas or nanostructures, the analysis of FTIR and ellipsometry data, and the development of a FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interopable and Reusable) system of theoretical and experimental results, uniformizing the data analysis platform into a common language. An international team of 10 scientists including very experienced scientists as well as several PhD students is looking forward to you. Flat hierarchies and mutual support are important to us. We see diversity of perspectives as a great advantage for our team.

Your project:

The project at IHP is intended to develop a concept for IHP to identify suitable materials, devices and technologies for the application in future plasmonic device for sensors.  A strong interaction with the project manager, laboratory responsible and the entire technologies team at IHP is expected, not only for data analysis, but also for data management. Moreover, an intense collaboration with BTU Cottbus and several international collaborators is planned.

Your qualifications:

You hold a PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering, or a comparable study area. You are already experienced in FEM calculation, FDTD, COMSOL, LUMERICAL, Matlab and Python. You developed data analysis and interpretation of FTIR spectra, and have a strong background in Semiconductor Physics, Optics and Photonics. We are looking for a team member, who is able to structure his or her own work and to bring a well-organized and systematic way of working into the cooperation with creative minds. In this position, you need to be a strong team player. You are an ideal match for this position, when you have experimental, analytical and problem-solving skills, very strong communicative skills and the ability to quickly learn how to operate the latest technical equipment including various software. It is necessary that you confidently handle the English language. Knowledge of the German language is welcome. The consolidating of German language skills is expected and highly encouraged, for example in in-house language courses and intensive courses.

Our Offer:

Do research in a challenging, multinational environment giving you excellent career opportunities. You will have the chance to establish international reputation at the edge of top-notch technologies. An orientation guide will help you to quickly integrate into the institute and to familiarize yourself with the field.

It is important to us to support the individual career developments (e.g. conferences, advanced trainings) as well as the personal needs of our employees by offering flexible working hours and the possibility to work off-site. The compatibility of work and family is highly valued. More information about our scientific excellence and the working environment at IHP can be found on our website.

IHP is TOTAL E-QUALITY-certified for equal opportunities for women and men at work and actively pursues the equality of all gender and all groups of people. We promote the professional development of women and strongly encourage them to apply. Disabled applicants, qualified according to the above criteria, will be given preference over other candidates with equivalent relevant qualifications.

Further advantages:

30 days holiday | special annual payment | Company pension scheme (VBL) | Flexible working hours, also part-time (no core working hours) | Possibility to work up to 40 % independent of location according to company agreement | Parent-child room as a possibility to work with a child in case of childcare bottlenecks | A wide range of further training opportunities in-house or within the framework of business trips | Discounted company ticket with monthly allowance of € 15 for various fare zones | Good transport connections, free parking at the institute | Canteen with breakfast and lunch | On-site health services | Company family and care guides | Free, confidential counselling by an external service provider in a wide variety of challenging private or professional situations, for example on how to reconcile work and family life or in psychosocial emergencies | Structured induction and actively supported integration into the institute (welcome workshop, intercultural workshop, joint leisure activities)
