The advertised post is funded by the Marie Skłodowska Curie Action within the framework ‘Scanning probe microscopies for nanoscale fast, tomographic and composition imaging - SPM2.0’ (ref. 721874) of the Marie Curie Initial Training Network.

The project will be hosted in the Microsystems Technology Group (MST). In MST we conduct widely recognized research on a wide range of diverse topics such as piezoelectric MEMS resonators, micromachined sensors and electronic devices for harsh environmental applications as well as energy harvesters for the realization of wireless sensor nodes. These research topics also include a detailed characterization of the functional materials involved. The opportunity to obtain the doctorate is offered.

Candidates must hold a MSc (or equivalent) in physics, microsystems engineering, electronic engineering, or similar with a strong background in the deposition of piezoelectric thin films, especially with techniques such as sputtering and spin-on, and the corresponding characterization techniques, in the realization of MEMS devices under clean room conditions, in the simulation with FEM (finite element method) tools like COMSOL and experience with the AFM (atomic force microscopy) measurement technique, especially with biological samples. Furthermore, the candidate should have most preferentially some experience as teaching assistant.

Marie-Curie fellowship Mobility requirement:

At the time of recruitment, candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work or studies) in Austria for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.

We offer


• 3 years PhD contract with very competitive salary and mobility allowance

• a friendly and dynamic research environment with close, daily interaction among all group members and strong collaborations with many international academic and industrial partners.

In the MST group we perform both basic and application oriented research where the realization of novel MEMS/NEMS device architectures is based on a detailed knowledge of key material properties as well as tailored micromachining technologies. For hardware realization and evaluation purposes in-house cleanroom facilities and modern lab space are available which are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. We are located in the heart of Vienna at the city campus of TU Wien, being one of the leading technical universities in Europe.

Applications must be submitted as one pdf file in English containing all materials to be given consideration via email.

• A letter motivating the application (cover letter)

• Curriculum vitae

• Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma
