Offer Description

The Hybrid Quantum- and Nanosystems Group at the Institute of Physics of the Faculty of Physics at the University of Münster (WWU), Germany, is seeking to fill the position of a

Doctoral Research Associate
Wissenschaftliche*r Mitarbeiter*in
(salary level TV-L E 13)

for the externally funded German-Austrian project “Programmable Integrated Magneto-Phononic Circuits” at the earliest possible date. We are offering a fixed-term part-time position (75%) for 3 years funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation).

Your tasks:

  • Design and fabrication of integrated magneto-phononic circuits and development of cleanroom processes for the fabrication of these devices
  • Experimental investigations of the fabricated devices and samples using cutting-edge high-resolution radio frequency spectroscopy and vector network analysis.
  • Analysis and modelling of data
  • Proactive coordination with project partners in Germany and Austria
  • Preparation of project reports
  • Dissemination of project results in scientific publications and contributions to workshops and conferences

Our expectations:

  • A graduate degree (Master or Diplom) in Physics or a closely related program passed with “Good” or better.
  • Profound knowledge in solid-state physics (expected) and in particular magnetism (desirable)
  • Profound knowledge of nanomechanics and the design of nanomechanical and phononic devices is desirable
  • Experience in cutting-edge cleanroom nanofabrication, for example electron beam lithography (EBL) or reactive ion etching (RIE) is desirable
  • Proficiency in English
  • Proficiency in German is desirable
  • Self-motivated, independent, structured and team-oriented work style, strong technical leaning

Advantages for you:

  • Appreciation, commitment, openness and respect – values which are important to us.
