Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Rese­arch Trai­ning Group (RTG) 2767 „Supra­col­lo­idal Struc­tures: From Mate­ri­als to Opti­cal and Elec­tro­nic Devices“

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 / PhD Stu­dent (m/f/x)


The Research Train­ing Group (RTG) 2767 „Supra­col­loidal Struc­tures: From Mater­i­als to Optical and Elec­tronic Devices“ of TU Dresden, fun­ded by Deutsche Forschungs­ge­meinsch­aft (DFG), offers, sub­ject to resources being avail­able, a pos­i­tion as

Tasks: Semi­con­ductor nan­o­particles for novel tran­sistor struc­tures

About the RTG
The RTG 2767 aims to train a new gen­er­a­tion of experts who will design mater­i­als made of supra­col­loidal struc­tures from the draw­ing board to applic­a­tion in com­pon­ents. Nan­o­particles are used in many optical and elec­tronic com­pon­ents nowadays. Supra­col­loidal struc­tures are com­plex super­struc­tures com­posed of dif­fer­ent nan­o­particles, sim­ilar to how atoms are linked to molecules. This res­ults in innov­at­ive, excep­tion­ally prom­ising optical and elec­tronic prop­er­ties that go far bey­ond those of the indi­vidual build­ing blocks. To date, these struc­ture-prop­erty rela­tion­ships of the assembled particles are not adequately under­stood. The tech­no­lo­gical vis­ions of these new mater­i­als include novel solar cells, field amp­li­fic­a­tion for highly sens­it­ive spec­tro­scopy, bio­sensing applic­a­tions where com­plex detec­tion pro­cesses are made sim­pler, and even on-site sample exam­in­a­tion using smart­phones. In order to real­ize the tech­nical com­plex­ity in the train­ing, numer­ous insti­tu­tions are con­nec­ted within the RTG’s 2767 tight net­work, includ­ing vari­ous groups at the TU Dresden, the Uni­versität Leipzig, the TU Dresden Research Cluster cfaed and the Dresden Cen­ter for Nanoana­lysis as well as the Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Poly­mer­forschung Dresden e. V., the Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dresden - Rossen­dorf e. V. and the Kurt-Schwabe-Insti­tut für Mess- und Sensor­tech­nik Meins­berg e.V.


Gene­ral Requi­re­ments
  • above-average uni­ver­sity degree achie­ved in short study period,
  • wil­ling­ness and abi­lity to think bey­ond the bounda­ries of your field, to act in an inter­na­tio­nal and diverse envi­ron­ment and to live an open and con­struc­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion,
  • strong ana­ly­tic and pro­blem-sol­ving skills, crea­ti­vity,
  • an inde­pen­dent, tar­get- and solu­tion-dri­ven work atti­tude,
  • flu­ency in Eng­lish, know­ledge of Ger­man would be a plus.

What we offer:

You will join an enthu­si­astic and ambi­tious rese­arch trai­ning group, where you can drive your pro­ject for­ward and bene­fit from inspi­ra­tio­nal inter­ac­tions with like-min­ded rese­ar­chers. The RTG offers struc­tu­red trai­ning pro­gram with tech­ni­cal and soft skill cour­ses, rese­arch stays abroad as well as con­tact to indus­try. It offers the oppor­tu­nity for PhD the­sis com­ple­tion. The working lan­guage of our inter­na­tio­nal teams is Eng­lish.
