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

Our inter­dis­cip­lin­ary field of „Microd­isplays and Sen­sors“ is enga­ged in the devel­op­ment and man­u­fac­tur­ing of micro-dis­plays and sen­sors based on the integ­ra­tion of orga­nic light emit­ting diodes (OLED) onto sil­icon CMOS sub­stra­tes. Here, our activ­it­ies range from the ini­tial idea, through design in close coo­per­a­tion with the OLED tech­no­logy, the cir­cuit design of the OLED integ­ra­tion, test­ing, assem­bly and inter­con­nec­tion tech­no­logy to the devel­op­ment of the com­plete sys­tem and app­lic­a­tion. Here, we are work­ing in the inter­dis­cip­lin­ary scope of dif­fer­ent sub­jects such as elec­tri­cal engin­eer­ing/elec­tron­ics, micro­elec­tron­ics, micro­sys­tems tech­no­logy, inform­a­tion tech­no­logy, com­puter sci­ence, phys­ics, chem­istry, optics and man­u­fac­tur­ing.

The doc­toral the­sis advert­ised here is part of the FEP con­tri­bu­tion to the excel­lence clus­ter "Cen­ter for Tact­ile Inter­net with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI)" at the Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD). This offers the uni­que oppor­tun­ity to par­ti­cip­ate in a highly inter­dis­cip­lin­ary and sci­en­tific­ally excel­lent envir­on­ment. Accord­ingly, in addi­tion to the work at Fraun­ho­fer FEP, act­ive com­mu­nic­a­tion with and wit­hin the clus­ter is expec­ted.

We offer you a topic for a PhD the­sis at our loc­a­tion Maria-Rei­che-Str. in Dres­den-Klotz­sche as soon as pos­sible.

PhD the­sis in the field of sys­tem design at the Human-Machine Inter­face

Working field:

What you will do:

In the con­text of a dis­ser­ta­tion, you are to deve­lop novel sys­tem archi­tec­tures for the human-machine inter­face. You will not only be inter­ested in hard­ware and soft­ware real­isa­tion, but will also keep an eye on aspects of app­lic­a­tion such as ergo­nom­ics, usab­il­ity and design.

You can expect an inter­est­ing, chal­len­ging and var­ied task in a highly innov­at­ive rese­arch and devel­op­ment envir­on­ment. You will be respons­ible for the fol­low­ing tasks:

  • Hard­ware design at the inter­face to the over­all sys­tem,
  • Integ­ra­tion of vari­ous sen­sors for sys­tem inter­ac­tion in dif­fer­ent novel app­lic­a­tions,
  • Prac­tical test­ing, eval­u­ation and fur­ther devel­op­ment of new approa­ches to human-machine inter­ac­tion,
  • Firm­ware and soft­ware devel­op­ment,
  • Com­bin­a­tion of dif­fer­ent multi-domain sys­tem inputs (opti­cal, tact­ile, ges­tures...),
  • Inter­dis­cip­lin­ary col­lab­or­a­tion with rese­arch­ers from dif­fer­ent dis­cip­lines ran­ging from tech­no­logy to med­ical use-cases,
  • Pre­sent­a­tion of activ­it­ies at pro­ject meet­ings of the Clus­ter of Excel­lence,
  • Par­ti­cip­a­tion in inter­na­tio­nal con­fer­ences.

The Fraun­ho­fer FEP works for both indus­trial and pub­lic cli­ents. Accord­ing to this, con­tacts with inter­na­tio­nal cus­tom­ers from indus­try, aca­demic part­ners and fun­ders are to make and main­tain, spe­cific­ally also wit­hin the CeTI clus­ter. A par­ti­cip­a­tion in pro­ject acquis­i­tion and man­age­ment is expli­citly encour­aged.


What you bring to the table:

You have a com­ple­ted uni­ver­sity degree in elec­tri­cal engin­eer­ing (micro­elec­tron­ics, inform­a­tion tech­no­logy), com­puter sci­ence or sim­ilar pro­grams.

  • Prac­tical exper­i­ence in sys­tem design and hard­ware design of micro­elec­tro­nic sys­tems,
  • Con­fid­ent hand­ling of at least one CAD soft­ware,
  • Very good pro­gram­ming skills in the area of micro­con­trol­lers, embed­ded sys­tems, hard­ware-rela­ted sen­sor inter­faces up to app­lic­a­tion soft­ware,
  • Basic know­ledge of com­mon net­work inter­faces (wired and wire­less),
  • Desir­able: First prac­tical exper­i­ence in RF-PCB design,
  • Inte­rest in human-machine inter­face, ergo­nom­ics, usab­il­ity and design of wear­able sys­tems,
  • Very good know­ledge of Ger­man and Eng­lish.

You should be resi­li­ent and flex­ible, enjoy work­ing with people and your work style should be char­ac­ter­ized by com­mit­ment, the intro­duc­tion of own ideas and accur­acy in hand­ling the neces­sary tasks. We expect strong organ­iz­a­tio­nal skills and a pro­fes­sio­nal pres­ence in deal­ing with inter­na­tio­nal sci­ent­ists, cus­tom­ers and pub­lic insti­tu­tions/fun­ders and the will­ing­ness to assume respons­ib­il­ity as well as team spi­rit and joy of work.

What we offer:

  • A respons­ible and chal­len­ging field of activ­ity with ple­nty of scope for imple­ment­ing your own ideas,
  • A col­legial work­ing atmo­sphere in a com­mit­ted team with excit­ing rese­arch pro­jects and state-of-the-art machine and test­ing tech­no­logy
  • Close super­vi­sion and sup­port from sci­ent­i­fic staff,
  • A mod­ern and inter­na­tion­ally ori­ented work­ing envir­on­ment,
  • Demand-ori­ented devel­op­ment oppor­tun­it­ies through fur­ther train­ing meas­ures and indi­vidu­ally tailo­red per­son­nel devel­op­ment,
  • Col­lect­ively agreed hol­i­day enti­tle­ment of 30 days as well as a work-life bal­ance through flex­ible work­ing hours, the pos­sib­il­ity of mobile work­ing and sup­port ser­vices to recon­cile fam­ily and career,
  • Com­pany pen­sion scheme (VBL).

Appoint­ment, remu­ner­a­tion and social secur­ity bene­fits based on the pub­lic-sec­tor col­lect­ive wage agree­ment (TVöD). Addi­tion­ally Fraun­ho­fer may grant per­form­ance-based vari­able remu­ner­a­tion com­pon­ents.

This vacancy is ini­tially lim­ited for 3 years and also 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.
