Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Fest­kör­per- und Werk­stoff­for­schung Dres­den e. V.

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden – in short IFW Dresden – is a non-uni­versity 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/f/d)

Linux-affine, for sys­tem admin­is­tra­tion of HPC- and/or desktop com­puters

Work­ing field:

Are you inter­ested in sys­tem admin­is­tra­tion of HPC- and/or desktop com­puters?

Are you look­ing for a stu­dent assist­ant job, designed for a longer co-oper­a­tion?

If you answer these ques­tions with yes, please con­tinue read­ing.

The Insti­tute for The­or­et­ical Solid State Phys­ics in the IFW Dresden needs sup­port with admin­is­tra­tion of Debian-based HPC cluster (~160 knots) and the design of work­place com­puters.

This can be small or lar­ger pro­jects in the area of

  • Adap­tion of quantum chem­ical pro­grammes to the exist­ing envir­on­ment (com­piler, MPI)
  • Auto­ma­tion of install­a­tions with FAI (fai-pro­
  • Tun­ing and upgrad­ing of oper­a­tion sys­tem (drivers, net­work­ing)
  • Doc­u­ment­a­tion (Wiki) for users
  • Design of dual-OS-work­places with integ­ra­tion into cent­ral infra­struc­ture.


We are look­ing for a stu­dent with
  • Linux com­mand line exper­i­ence
  • Know­ledge of com­mon net­work ser­vices
  • Abil­ity of self-con­trolled work
  • With the under­stand­ing, that doc­u­ment­a­tion is neces­sary for good sus­tain­able work.

What we of­fer:

  • A fairly long-term stu­dent assist­ant job
  • The oppor­tun­ity for prac­tical work with clearly designed HPC- Sys­tems
  • Par­ti­cip­a­tion in design of hard- and soft­ware pro­ject, if you are inter­ested in it
  • Indi­vidual work­ing hours on agree­ment

How to ap­ply:

For more inform­a­tion on please feel free to con­tact Ulrike Nitz­sche (,

The IFW would like to increase the pro­por­tion of women in sci­ence. Qual­i­fied women are there­fore explic-itly invited to apply. Severely dis­abled applic­ants (m/f/d) are given pref­er­en­tial treat­ment if they have the same qual­i­fic­a­tions.

If you are inter­ested in the pos­i­tion, please send your applic­a­tion (in Eng­lish) includ­ing a CV,
a motiv­a­tion let­ter, skills and exper­i­ence and cop­ies of cer­ti­fic­ates cit­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber
(A5200-2/19) as a single pdf file (other formats will not be accep­ted) exclus­ively to:
