IFW Dres­den

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Rese­arch Dres­den – in short IFW Dres­den – is a non­uni­ver­sity rese­arch insti­tute and a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation. The IFW employs approx­im­ately 600 people and one focus is on the train­ing of young sci­ent­ists besi­des enhan­cing fun­da­men­tal and app­lied rese­arch devel­op­ment. At the hig­hest inter­na­tio­nal level, the IFW oper­ates mod­ern mater­i­als sci­ence on a sci­ent­i­fic basis and makes the obtai­ned res­ults use­ful for the eco­nomy. The com­plex and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary rese­arch work is car­ried out wit­hin the IFW by five sci­ent­i­fic insti­tutes, which are sup­por­ted by a highly deve­lo­ped tech­nical infra­struc­ture. The IFW sup­ports its employ­ees in recon­cil­ing work and fam­ily life and reg­u­larly sub­mits to the beru­fund­fam­ilie® audit. Fur­ther inform­a­tion at:

Stu­dent Assist­ant (m/w/d) in Micro acous­tic Aer­o­sol Gen­er­a­tion 039-22-3010

Working field:

At SAW­Lab Sax­ony, we have recently deve­lo­ped a com­pact acous­tic aer­o­sol source that can be used for micro­drop­let gen­er­a­tion in app­lic­a­tion areas such as mass-spec­tro­metry, mater­ial depos­ition, inhal­a­tion ther­apy, and olfact­ory sources. The aer­o­sol gen­er­a­tion is based on the inter­ac­tion of high-fre­quency sound waves (sur­face acous­tic waves, SAW) with flu­ids in a micro­chan­nel. Dur­ing your work, you will design and test new lay­outs for micro­flui­dic atom­izer chips and chip hol­der peri­phery and adapt them to real-world scen­arios.


As a can­did­ate (m/w/d), you study pro­cess engin­eer­ing, micro­sys­tems tech­no­logy, elec­tri­cal engin­eer­ing, mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing, micro­flui­dics, or sim­ilar and are inter­ested in being part of a cut­ting-edge rese­arch team and work­ing with prom­ising lab-on-a-chip tech­no­logy. First, exper­i­ences in eit­her micro­flui­dic design and exper­i­ment, aer­o­sol sci­ence, micro­fab­ric­a­tion tech­niques, and 2D/3D CAD are advant­age­ous. The abil­ity to work in a team is stron­gly requi­red.

What we offer:

There are open pos­i­tions for stu­dent assist­ants (m/w/d) at SAW­Lab Sax­ony as part of the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Rese­arch (IFW Dres­den). You will work in the field of acousto-flu­idics devices, in par­tic­u­lar on microacous­tic aer­o­sol gen­er­a­tion.

How to apply:

If you are inter­ested in the pos­i­tion, please send your app­lic­a­tion (in Eng­lish or Ger­man) includ­ing a cover let­ter with CV and cop­ies of cer­ti­fic­ates and other rel­ev­ant mater­ial (if app­lic­able) cit­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber 039-22-3010 as a sin­gle pdf file (other for­mats will not be accep­ted) to the fol­low­ing email-address:

The pos­i­tion is open as long as the announce­ment is online.
