IHP GmbH - Leibniz-Institut für innovative Mikroelektronik
The IHP is an institute of the Leibniz Association and conducts research and development of silicon-based systems and ultra high-frequency circuits and technologies including new materials. It develops innovative solutions for application areas such as wireless and broadband communication, security, medical technology, industry 4.0, automotive industry, and aerospace. The IHP employs approximately 300 people. It operates a pilot line for technological developments and the preparation of high-speed circuits with 0.13/0.25 µm BiCMOS technologies, located in a 1000 m² class 1 cleanroom.
IHP and TU Berlin have founded the Joint Lab Bioelectronics with common laboratories at both institutions, where the work will be performed.
Student assistant (m/f)
Participate in the development of a biotechnological system for cell separation in the BMBF-funded project SepaDiElo. The system shall operate by the principle of dielectrophoresis (DEP) and does not rely on fluorescent labeling. Possible application scenarios have to be evaluated for the separation of microorganisms like E. coli or S. cerevisiae. An overview of the literature has to be performed and most promising applications should be identified. Based on these results, adequate biosystem designs have to be sketched and tested on an early demonstrator level. You are welcome to ask for possibilities to do a master thesis.
Bachelor degree in a scientific or engineering discipline like biotechnology, medical engineering, construction or comparable,
Very good communication skills and the readiness to work in a strong interdisciplinary team
Experiences with cell separation techniques like FACS and 3D CAD tools would be advantageous
Highly motivated with very good experimental and theoretical skills
Very good oral and written skills in German or/and English are mandatory
What we offer:
The IHP offers a challenging, multinational environment, with excellent career prospects. You will have the opportunity to establish an international reputation at the forefront of high tech.
Start: earliest from 1st April 2017
Limitation: 9 months
How to apply:
The IHP seeks to incorporate more women into science. Therefore, women are strongly encouraged to apply. Disabled applicants, qualified according to the above criteria, will be given preference over other candidates with equivalent relevant qualifications.
