IFW Dres­den e.V. - Leib­niz-Insti­tute for Solid State and Mater­i­als Research Dresden

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 besides enhan­cing fun­da­mental and ap-plied 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 recon­cil-ing work and fam­ily life and reg­u­larly sub­mits to the beru­fund­fam­ilie® audit.

Post-Doc pos­i­tion (m/f/d) - 5101-2/20


The IFW announces the open­ing for a Post Doc pos­i­tion in the Insti­tute for The­or­et­ical Solid State Phys­ics start­ing 01.08.2020 in full-time (part-time is also pos­sible) lim­ited to 24 months.

Work­ing field:

Tar­get areas include (but are not lim­ited to) research­ing in “Wave-func­tion-based ab ini­tio com­puta-tional meth­ods, employed for mod­el­ling the elec­tronic struc­ture of lacunar spinel and pos­sibly related sys­tems”.


The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate (m/f/d) should have a Mas­ter’s degree or Dip­loma in the­or­et­ical phys­ics or the­or­et­ical chem­istry and has a doc­tor­ate, as well as high motiv­a­tion and good Eng­lish skills. We expect a strong back­ground in elec­tronic-struc­ture com­pu­ta­tional meth­ods, and in solid state phys-ics. We require exper­i­ence with wave-func­tion-based cal­cu­la­tions and the com­pu­ta­tion of spec­tro-scopic prop­er­ties.

What we of­fer:

The dur­a­tion of the con­tract is 2 years. The salary is accord­ing to the Ger­man tar­iff TV-L (EG 13, 100%). The employ­ment is start­ing 1st August 2020.

How to ap­ply:

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.

If you are inter­ested in the pos­i­tion, please send your applic­a­tion includ­ing a CV and the list of publi-cations, a motiv­a­tion let­ter describ­ing the research career goals, skills and exper­i­ence, cop­ies of cer-tific­ates cit­ing the ref­er­ence num­ber (5101-2/20) as a single pdf file (other formats will not be accept-ed) to the fol­low­ing email-address:

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