Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den-Ros­sen­dorf e.V.

Through cut­ting-edge research in the fields of ENERGY, HEALTH and MAT­TER, Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dresden-Rossen­dorf (HZDR) solves some of the press­ing soci­etal and indus­trial chal­lenges of our time. Join our 1.500 employ­ees from more than 50 nations at one of our six research sites and help us mov­ing research to the next level!

The Insti­tute for Ion Beam Phys­ics and Mater­i­als Research is ded­ic­ated to the study of mater­i­als and their nano­struc­tures that can be con­sidered for future applic­a­tions in inform­a­tion tech­no­logy and are based on elec­trical, mag­netic or optical func­tion­al­it­ies.

As part of the Insti­tute, the Ion Beam Centre invites applic­a­tions as PhD stu­dent (f/m/d) on the topic "Spa­tially resolved single or few ion implant­a­tions for quantum tech­no­logy".

The pos­i­tion will be avail­able at the earli­est pos­sible date. The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to three years.

PhD stu­dent (f/m/d) on the topic "Spa­tially resolved single or few ion implant­a­tions for quantum tech­no­logy"


Working field:

  • Invest­ig­ate the tech­nical require­ments for the suc­cess­ful real­iz­a­tion of single or few ion implants
  • Devel­op­ment of a detector suit­able for the detec­tion of single ion implant­a­tion events
  • Fab­ric­a­tion and char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of liquid metal alloy ion sources for local implant­a­tion
  • Gen­er­a­tion of defects and color cen­ters as single photon emit­ters and implant­a­tion of 5th main group ele­ments as donor qubits for quantum tech­no­logy applic­a­tions
  • Optical and elec­trical char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of single dop­ing atoms and ion-induced defects, e.g., by means of cath­odo­lu­min­es­cence


  • Very good gradu­ated degree (Dip­loma / Mas­ter) in Phys­ics, Mater­ial Sci­ence or sim­ilar degree in nat­ural sci­ences
  • Exper­i­ence in con­duct­ing exper­i­mental work and the abil­ity to build del­ic­ate devices
  • Exper­i­ence in the applic­a­tion of charged particle beams and vacuum tech­no­logy
  • Pro­gram­ming know­ledge for example in C++, Python, Lab­View, Mat­lab or Java
  • Very good team­work skills with abil­ity to col­lab­or­ate both with exper­i­ment­al­ists and the­or­ists
  • Very good Eng­lish lan­guage skills (spoken and writ­ten)

What we offer:

  • A vibrant research com­munity in an open, diverse and inter­na­tional work envir­on­ment
  • Sci­entific excel­lence and extens­ive pro­fes­sional net­work­ing oppor­tun­it­ies
  • A struc­tured PhD pro­gram with a com­pre­hens­ive range of con­tinu­ing edu­ca­tion and net­work­ing oppor­tun­it­ies - more inform­a­tion about the PhD pro­gram at the HZDR can be found here
  • The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to three years
  • Salary and social bene­fits in accord­ance with the col­lect­ive agree­ment for the pub­lic sec­tor (TVöD-Bund) includ­ing 30 days of paid hol­i­day leave, com­pany pen­sion scheme (VBL)
  • We sup­port a good work-life bal­ance with the pos­sib­il­ity of part-time employ­ment and flex­ible work­ing hours
  • Numer­ous com­pany health man­age­ment offer­ings
  • An employer sub­sidy for the VVO job ticket
