Fraun­ho­fer-Insti­tut für Orga­ni­sche Elek­tro­nik, Elek­tro­nen­strahl- und Plas­ma­tech­nik FEP

The Fraunhofer Insti­tute for Organic Elec­tron­ics, Elec­tron Beam and Plasma Tech­no­logy FEP is loc­ated in Dresden and focuses on devel­op­ing innov­at­ive solu­tions, tech­no­lo­gies and pro­cesses for sur­face modi­fic­a­tion and organic elec­tron­ics. For the devel­op­ment of solu­tions for vari­ous indus­trial tasks in sur­face treat­ment, vacuum coat­ing and for organic semi­con­duct­ors we use our core com­pet­en­cies in elec­tron beam tech­no­logy, roll-to-roll tech­no­logy, plasma-activ­ated large-area and pre­ci­sion coat­ing, tech­no­lo­gies for organic elec­tron­ics, IC design and the devel­op­ment of tech­no­lo­gical key com­pon­ents.

The divi­sion Microd­isplays & Sensors of Fraunhofer FEP is devel­op­ing pro­cesses, com­pon­ents and applic­a­tions based on OLED-on-Sil­icon tech­no­logy. This com­pet­ence is served by long-term R&D on organic light-emit­ting diodes (OLED) and organic photo-diodes incor­por­at­ing vari­ous mater­i­als and designs as well as char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of cus­tomer-spe­cific com­pon­ents and sys­tems. That involves mixed-sig­nal CMOS ASIC design, sensor integ­ra­tion as well as elec­tron­ics, soft­ware and optics design and their sys­tem integ­ra­tion.

To sup­port our team, we are look­ing for stu­dents who are inter­ested in an intern­ship or a pos­i­tion as a stu­dent assist­ant at our Loc­a­tion Maria-Reiche-Str. in Dresden-Klotz­sche as soon as pos­sible.

Stu­dent assist­ant / intern­ship – Eval­u­ation and optim­iz­a­tion of a mini­atur­ized fluor­es­cence sensor plat­form

Working field:

Based on OLED-on-CMOS tech­no­logy, the Microd­isplays and Sensors divi­sion of Fraunhofer FEP has developed a fluor­es­cence sensor that can be used in com­bin­a­tion with a sensor marker, for example, to determ­ine the oxy­gen con­cen­tra­tion in a medium (gas, liquid). The sensor is integ­rated in a devel­op­ment sys­tem suit­able for eval­u­ation as well as in a mini­atur­ized applic­a­tion sys­tem. The imple­men­ted eval­u­ation algorithms are to be eval­u­ated and the sys­tem sub­sequently optim­ized and expan­ded into a demon­strator. For this pur­pose, both hard­ware and soft­ware have to be ana­lyzed and revised.

The topic includes the fol­low­ing tasks for which we are look­ing for sup­port:

  • Famil­i­ar­iz­a­tion with algorithms for fluor­es­cence detec­tion (meas­ure­ment of phase shift, IQ mod­u­la­tion and demon­stra­tion, oth­ers),
  • Com­mis­sion­ing and eval­u­ation of the exist­ing sensor sys­tem in terms of func­tion­altiy, per­form­ance, accur­acy and energy con­sump­tion,
  • Famil­i­ar­iz­a­tion with and, if neces­sary, adapt­a­tion of the exist­ing mir­cocon­trol­ler firm­ware,
  • Concept devel­op­ment for a demon­strator incl. mech­an­ics, elec­tron­ics (prin­ted cir­cuit boards), soft­ware,
  • Imple­ment­a­tion of a demon­strator concept in the form of mech­an­ical design of the hous­ing, design of prin­ted cir­cuit boards, adap­tion of the firm­ware.


This recruit­ment is inten­ded for stu­dents of meas­ure­ment tech­no­logy, auto­ma­tion tech­no­logy, inform­a­tion tech­no­logy, device devel­op­ment or sim­ilar pro­grams.

Know­ledge of C-Pro­gram­ming and good Eng­lish skills are required.

Desir­able would be exper­i­ence in micro­con­trol­ler pro­gram­ming, prin­ted cir­cuit board design or pack­age design as well as good Ger­man lan­guage skills.

What we offer:

  • Insight into one of the world’s lead­ing research com­pan­ies,
  • Col­lab­or­a­tion on innov­at­ive research pro­jects in the field of microd­isplays and sensor tech­no­logy in an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team,
  • Expan­sion of the­or­et­ical study know­ledge through prac­tical applic­a­tion,
  • Close super­vi­sion dur­ing famil­i­ar­isa­tion with the sub­ject mat­ter by sci­entific / long-term staff as well as highly motiv­ated trainee staff,
  • A mod­ern and inter­na­tion­ally ori­ented work­ing envir­on­ment,
  • Flex­ible work­ing hours to cre­ate a work-life bal­ance and, if neces­sary, adapt to the semester sched­ule,
  • Oppor­tun­it­ies for pro­fes­sional and per­sonal devel­op­ment,
  • Pos­sib­il­ity of writ­ing a stu­dent research pro­ject/final thesis.

Remu­ner­a­tion accord­ing to the gen­eral works agree­ment for employ­ing assist­ant staff. In case of an intern­ship, remu­ner­a­tion is accord­ing to the reg­u­la­tions of the fed­eral gov­er­ment.

This vacancy is tem­por­ary and also avail­able on a part-time Basis.

We value and pro­mote the diversity of our employ­ees‘ skills and there­fore wel­come all applic­a­tions – regard­less of age, gender, nation­al­ity, eth­nic and social ori­gin, reli­gion, ideo­logy, dis­ab­il­ity, sexual ori­ent­a­tion and iden­tity.

With its focus on devel­op­ing key tech­no­lo­gies that are vital for the future and enabling the com­mer­cial util­iz­a­tion of this work by busi­ness and industry, Fraunhofer plays a cent­ral role in the innov­a­tion pro­cess. As a pion­eer and cata­lyst for ground­break­ing devel­op­ments and sci­entific excel­lence, Fraunhofer helps shape soci­ety now and in the future.
