Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den (cfaed)

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)

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 until Decem­ber 31, 2024. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz-WissZeitVG). Balan­cing family and career is an important issue. The posi­tion is gene­rally sui­ta­ble for can­di­da­tes see­king part-time employ­ment. Please indi­cate your request in your app­li­ca­tion. The posi­tion aims at obtai­ning fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion.

Working field:

Posi­tion: Due to the way con­ven­tio­nal CMOS-based archi­tec­tures ope­rate, they are ulti­mately limi­ted by the Neu­mann bot­t­len­eck which makes them slow and energy-inef­fi­ci­ent at cer­tain tasks (vec­to­riz­able, highly par­al­lel infor­ma­tion pro­ces­sing). On the other hand, the human brain is an example for an archi­tec­ture capa­ble of mas­si­vely par­al­lel pro­ces­sing of infor­ma­tion through each syn­ap­tic event only con­su­mes about 1–100 fJ. Recent deve­lop­ments have shown that thin film neu­ro­mor­phic devices can be very com­pe­ti­tive in this new field. With this rese­arch pro­jects we want to explore novel device and cir­cuit archi­tec­tures that enable neu­ro­mor­phic cir­cuit func­tio­n­a­lity.

Tasks: The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will
  • col­la­bo­rate with a cir­cuit design group in the pro­ject Mem­Trap that is part of the DFG prio­rity pro­gram “Mem­ris­tive Devices Toward Smart Tech­ni­cal Sys­tems” (SPP 2262);
  • fabri­cate thin film tran­sis­tor devices and elec­tric cir­cuits that con­tain tran­sis­tor devices - these can be oxide-based or orga­nic – and memory devices based on neu­ro­mor­phic cir­cuit designs;
  • cha­rac­te­rize the resul­ting devices and cir­cuits both mor­pho­lo­gi­cally and elec­tri­cally, the lat­ter inclu­ding tech­ni­ques such as I-V, C-V, C-f.


  • mini­mum an out­stan­ding uni­ver­sity and PhD degree in phy­sics, elec­tro­nics, mate­ri­als sci­ence or rela­ted field of phy­si­cal sci­en­ces;
  • pre­vious expe­ri­ence in fabri­ca­tion of thin film elec­tro­nic devices using pho­to­li­tho­gra­phy or other litho­gra­phic struc­tu­ring tech­ni­ques;
  • basic know­ledge in device phy­sics/semi­con­duc­tor phy­sics;
  • 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 clus­ters;
  • flu­ency in Eng­lish - writ­ten and oral.
  • Ide­ally also prior expe­ri­ence with cir­cuit fabri­ca­tion.

What we offer:

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

How to apply:

TUD stri­ves to employ more women in aca­de­mia and rese­arch. We the­re­fore expressly encou­rage women to apply. The Uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a Dual Career Ser­vice. We wel­come app­li­ca­ti­ons from can­di­da­tes with disa­bi­li­ties. If mul­ti­ple can­di­da­tes prove to be equally qua­li­fied, those with disa­bi­li­ties or with equi­va­lent sta­tus pur­suant to the Ger­man Social Code IX (SGB IX) will receive prio­rity for employ­ment.
Your app­li­ca­tion (in Eng­lish only) should include: moti­va­tion let­ter, CV, copy of degree cer­ti­fi­cate, tran­script of gra­des and proof of Eng­lish lan­guage skills. Please sub­mit your com­pre­hen­sive app­li­ca­tion by April 14, 2023 (stam­ped arri­val date of the uni­ver­sity cen­tral mail ser­vice app­lies) pre­fer­a­bly via the TU Dres­den Secu­re­Mail Por­tal by sen­ding it as a sin­gle pdf-docu­ment to quo­ting the refe­rence num­ber PD2302_Mem­Trap in the sub­ject hea­der or to: TU Dres­den, cfaed, Pro­fes­sur für Orga­ni­sche Bau­ele­mente, z. Hd. Anne Schulze, Helm­holtz­str. 10, 01069 Dres­den, Ger­many. Please sub­mit copies only, as your app­li­ca­tion will not be retur­ned to you.
