Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - cfaed - Pro­fes­sur für Mole­ku­lare Funk­ti­ons­ma­te­ria­lien

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 / Post­doc (m/f/x)

At TU Dres­den, Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den, Gra­phene Flagship Pro­ject “Gra­phene-based Dis­rup­tive Tech­no­lo­gies” Gra­phene Core3 the Chair of Mole­cu­lar Func­tio­nal Mate­ri­als offers the fol­lo­wing pro­ject posi­tion as:

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Post­doc (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

Rese­arch area: Deve­lop­ment of gra­phene based mate­ri­als with focus on the area “Sur­faces, Foams and Coa­tings” such as gra­phene based poly­mer com­po­site, con­duc­tive inks and anti­cor­ro­sion coa­tings.
Inves­ti­ga­tors: Prof. Dr. Xin­liang Feng
rese­arch path: Orga­nic/Poly­mer Path

Terms: 65% of the full­time wee­kly hours, star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble, until Sep­tem­ber 30, 2023, with the pos­si­bi­lity of exten­sion sub­ject to fur­ther third-party fun­ded pro­jects. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) the Fixed-Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz – WissZeitVG).

Working field:

The Gra­phene Flagship is, along with the Human Brain Pro­ject, the first of the European Com­mis­sion's Future and Emer­ging Tech­no­logy (FET) Flagships, whose mis­sion is to address the big sci­en­ti­fic and tech­no­lo­gi­cal chal­len­ges of the age through long-term, mul­ti­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch and deve­lop­ment efforts. In par­ti­cu­lar, it is tas­ked with brin­ging tog­e­ther aca­de­mic and indus­trial rese­ar­chers to take gra­phene from the realm of aca­de­mic labo­ra­to­ries into European society in the space of ten years, thus gene­ra­ting eco­no­mic growth, new jobs and new oppor­tu­nities.
Wit­hin this European pro­ject, the Chair of Mole­cu­lar Func­tio­nal Mate­ri­als is focu­sed on the syn­the­sis and pro­duc­tion of Gra­phene and other 2D nano­ma­te­ri­als which emerge as out­stan­ding can­di­da­tes for a great num­ber of elec­tro­nic app­li­ca­ti­ons. The goal of this rese­arch is to syn­the­size gra­phene mole­cu­les and 2D mate­ri­als bea­ring elec­tro­nic func­tions.
The suc­cess­ful can­di­da­tes will be respon­si­ble for: Design and syn­the­sis of gra­phene mole­cu­les and 2D mate­ri­als with novel edge struc­tures; pro­duc­tion and func­tio­n­a­li­za­tion of gra­phene and 2D mate­ri­als; for­mu­la­tion of gra­phene and 2D mate­ri­als into nano­com­po­si­tes with added func­tio­n­a­lity; deve­lop­ment and pre­pa­ra­tion of gra­phene and 2D mate­rial disper­si­ons and inks and app­li­ca­tion rese­arch in the field of envi­ron­men­tal coa­ting and energy sto­rage; orga­ni­za­tio­nal tasks wit­hin the Flagship pro­ject. Close col­la­bo­ra­tion with indus­tries and working with the domain experts to under­stand the exis­ting pro­ject port­fo­lio and scou­ting for pro­mi­sing tech­no­lo­gies that can be fur­ther deve­lo­ped for com­mer­cial adop­tion inclu­ding the tech­no­lo­gies and pro­ducts deve­lo­ped by the can­di­date in TU Dres­den Labs.


We aim at attrac­ting the best talent in the respec­tive rese­arch fields and expect the fol­lo­wing: an out­stan­ding uni­ver­sity and a PhD degree in orga­nic che­mi­stry, poly­mer che­mi­stry or simi­lar; pre­vious expe­ri­ence in gra­phene, 2D mate­ri­als and poly­mer com­po­site pre­pa­ra­tion; expe­ri­ence on secu­ring fun­ding for pro­jects/pro­grams of tech­no­lo­gies and any asso­cia­ted IPR; very good inter­per­so­nal and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills; in par­ti­cu­lar, the abi­lity to effec­tively work in col­la­bo­ra­tive rese­arch efforts; an inde­pen­dent, tar­get- and solu­tion-dri­ven work atti­tude; inter- and mul­ti­di­sci­pli­nary thin­king; strong moti­va­tion and inte­rest to join one of the most ambi­tious inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch cen­ters; flu­ency in Eng­lish - writ­ten and oral.

What we offer:

You will join a team of enthu­si­astic sci­en­tists who pur­sue crea­tively their indi­vi­dual rese­arch agenda inspi­red by the rese­arch cen­ter’s inno­va­tive approach and sup­port. Your rese­arch will be fos­te­red by the cfaed phi­lo­so­phy to pro­mote young rese­ar­chers, which inclu­des: access to state of the art rese­arch of lea­ding aca­de­mic insti­tu­tes; pro­mo­tion of gen­der equa­lity and family-fri­endly work envi­ron­ment.

About cfaed
cfaed is a Cen­tral Aca­de­mic Unit of TU Dres­den and brings tog­e­ther 300 rese­ar­chers from the uni­ver­sity and 10 other rese­arch insti­tu­tes in the areas of Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Mate­ri­als Sci­ence, Phy­sics, Che­mi­stry, Bio­logy, and Mathe­ma­tics. cfaed addres­ses the advan­ce­ment of elec­tro­nic infor­ma­tion pro­ces­sing sys­tems through explo­ring new tech­no­lo­gies which over­come the limits of today’s pre­do­mi­nant CMOS tech­no­logy.

TU Dres­den
The TU Dres­den is among the top uni­ver­si­ties in Ger­many and Europe and one of the ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an ‘elite uni­ver­sity’ in June 2019. As a modern full-sta­tus uni­ver­sity with 17 facul­ties it offers a wide aca­de­mic range making it one of a very few in Ger­many.
