Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Semi­con­duc­tors and Micro­sys­tems, Chair of Micro­sys­tems

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Early Stage Rese­ar­cher in soft-robo­tics (m/f/x)

The posi­ti­ton is star­ting by agree­ment, but latest at Janu­ary 1, 2023. The posi­tion is limi­ted for 36 mon­ths. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG). The Early Stage Rese­ar­cher (ESR) will receive a salary accord­ing to MCSA regu­la­ti­ons, inclu­ding a living allo­wance, a mobi­lity allo­wance and a family allo­wance (if eli­gi­ble).

Working field:

Embed­ded in the MSCA Doc­to­ral Net­work SOFT­WEAR, you have the chance to be part of sha­ping the exci­ting future of soft weara­bles. The Chair of Micro­sys­tems has a spe­cial focus on novel micro­sys­tems, which are based on spe­cial pro­per­ties of intrin­si­cally active orga­nic and poly­me­ric mate­ri­als. Your rese­arch is focu­sed on the basics of dis­tri­bu­ted and minia­tu­ri­zed net­works of soft DE actua­tor-, sen­sor- and signal-pro­ces­sor nodes wit­hin one ent­i­rely soft struc­ture that enab­les advan­ced weara­ble struc­tures with refle­xive func­tio­n­a­lity. The rese­arch inclu­des (a) eva­lua­tion of exis­ting sen­sors e.g. for large strain detec­tion in weara­bles and derive stra­te­gies to minia­tu­rize and dis­tri­bute sen­sor nodes in a soft weara­ble struc­ture, (b) inves­ti­ga­tion of dif­fe­rent pro­duc­tion tech­no­lo­gies for elec­tro­des and con­duc­tors such as 3D prin­ting and litho­gra­phy, (c) design of inte­gra­ted DE actua­tor and sen­sor units, resemb­ling digi­tal stan­dard gates and fun­da­men­tal signal pro­ces­sing struc­tures such as clocks, flip-flops and memory, and (d) com­bi­na­tion to mul­ti­func­tio­nal, weara­ble, soft struc­tures that can be inte­gra­ted in a soft, sup­por­tive exo­ske­le­ton.


The ESR must, at the time of recruit­ment, hold an above-average uni­ver­sity degree (Mas­ter's or Diploma) in the fields of elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring, micro­sys­tems engi­nee­ring, mate­ri­als sci­ence or rela­ted fields and have not yet been awar­ded a doc­to­ral degree. At the time of recruit­ment rese­ar­chers must not have resi­ded or car­ried out their main activity (work, stu­dies, etc) in the coun­try where they are app­ly­ing for more than 12 mon­ths in the 3 years imme­dia­tely prior to the refe­rence date. The ESR must have expe­ri­ence in at least two of the areas of micro­sys­tems engi­nee­ring; soft robo­tics, as well as syn­the­sis and cha­rac­te­ri­za­tion of intrin­si­cally active poly­mers. We also expect the abi­lity to work inde­pendently, goal-ori­en­ted, high level of com­mit­ment, con­fi­dent know­ledge of the Eng­lish lan­guage as well as enjoy­ment and inte­rest in prac­tice-ori­en­ted, inter­di­sci­pli­nary col­la­bo­ra­tion.

What we offer:

par­ti­ci­pa­tion in a pres­ti­gious European Doc­to­ral Net­work; a com­pe­tent, suc­cess­ful, inter­di­sci­pli­nary, inter­na­tio­nal and fri­endly team; excel­lently equip­ped labo­ra­to­ries; par­ti­ci­pa­tion in sci­en­ti­fic con­fe­ren­ces and an exten­sive part­ner net­work in sci­ence and indus­try. The TU Dres­den is one of the ele­ven Ger­man Elite Uni­ver­si­ties, which not only offers a dyna­mic, crea­tive and modern envi­ron­ment, but also a wide range of advan­ced qua­li­fi­ca­tion opti­ons and a family-fri­endly envi­ron­ment. The Faculty of Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring is one of the stron­gest in its field in Europe and world­wide. Fur­ther infor­ma­tion can be found at
