Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Phy­sics, Insti­tute of App­lied Phy­sics, Chair of Emer­ging Elec­tro­nic Tech­no­lo­gies

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. lt deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity and trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion.

For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Post­doc (m/f/x)

At the Faculty of Phy­sics, Insti­tute of App­lied Phy­sics, the Chair of Emer­ging Elec­tro­nic Tech­no­lo­gies (Prof. Yana Vaynzof) affi­lia­ted with the Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den (cfaed) offers a posi­tion as
Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Post­doc (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­tion is limi­ted for two years. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz-WissZeitVG). The posi­tion aims at obtai­ning fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. habi­li­ta­tion the­sis).
The rese­arch activi­ties of the Chair of Emer­ging Elec­tro­nic Tech­no­lo­gies are focu­sed on the deve­lop­ment, ana­ly­sis and opti­mi­za­tion of novel solar cell tech­no­lo­gies. Recent deve­lop­ments in the field of perovs­kite solar cells have led to their power con­ver­sion effi­ci­en­cies sur­pas­sing 25%. We focus on inves­ti­ga­ting the phy­si­cal pro­ces­ses gover­ning the per­for­mance of perovs­kite mate­ri­als, inclu­ding inter­fa­cial pro­ces­ses, role of defects, micro­st­ruc­ture and device ener­ge­tics. We also inves­ti­gate the degra­da­tion mecha­nisms of perovs­kite mate­ri­als and devices and deve­lop miti­ga­tion stra­te­gies for enhan­cing the device sta­bi­lity. Rese­arch work on perovs­kite mate­ri­als and devices at TU Dres­den takes place in the Dres­den Inte­gra­ted Cen­ter for App­lied Phy­sics and Pho­to­nic Mate­ri­als (DC-IAPP), which is one of the worlds lea­ding rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the field of optoelec­tro­nic devices based on emer­ging semi­con­duc­tors.

Working field:

Rese­arch on perovs­kite pho­to­vol­taic devices, inclu­ding their pro­ces­sing and fabri­ca­tion, advan­ced spec­tro­scopic and micro­scopic cha­rac­te­ri­za­tion, opti­mi­za­tion and ana­ly­sis. The work inclu­des col­la­bo­ra­tion with natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal rese­arch part­ners.
