IFW Dres­den e.V. - Fest­kör­per- und Werk­stoff­for­schung

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden (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 (m/f/d) 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 (m/f/d) in recon­cil­ing work and fam­ily life and reg­u­larly sub­mits to the beru­fund­fam­ilie® audit. Fur­ther inform­a­tion at:

PhD-Stu­dent (m/f/d)


research group of "Chem­istry of Func­tional Mater­i­als"

Work­ing field:

Within a DFG-fun­ded pro­ject on „Elec­tro­chem­ical nano­struc­tur­ing of sur­faces of metal­lic glass-form­ing alloys for bio­med­ical use“, your research work will com­prise the syn­thesis of metal­lic glass-form­ing alloys and their micro­struc­tural and mech­an­ical char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion. The main focus will be on elec­tro­chem­ical sur­face modi­fic­a­tion meth­ods and the ana­lysis of related elec­tro­chem­ical reac­tions as well as on ana­lyt­ical stud­ies of res­ult­ing sur­face states.


All can­did­ates (m/f/d), with a strong back­ground and a suc­cess­ful Dip­loma or Mas­ter degree in the area of chem­istry (phys­ical chem­istry), of mater­i­als sci­ence (metals) or of metal phys­ics are encour­aged to apply. An adequate know­ledge of elec­tro­chem­istry and elec­tro­chem­ical meth­ods, of sur­face ana­lyt­ical tech-niques as well of micro­struc­tural and mech­an­ical char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion meth­ods of metal­lic mater­i­als is needed. Basic know­ledge in biocom­pat­ib­il­ity eval­u­ation of metal­lic implant mater­i­als is desir­able. A high read­i­ness for col­lab­or­a­tion in an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary and inter­na­tional research team is expec­ted.

What we of­fer:

The salary will be based upon the TV-L rules (TV-L E13). The con­tract will be lim­ited to 3 years.

The insti­tute pro­motes the pro­fes­sional equal­ity between all genders. The IFW would like to increase the pro­por­tion of women in sci­ence. Qual­i­fied women are there­fore expli­citly invited to apply. Severely dis­abled applic­ants (m/f/d) are given pref­er­en­tial treat­ment if they have the same qual­i­fic­a­tions.

How to ap­ply:

lf 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) as a single pdf file (other formats will not be accep­ted) cit­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber 057-21-3310 to the fol­low­ing email address:

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

lf you have fur­ther ques­tions on the pos­i­tion, please con­tact Dr. Annett Gebert (
