Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Mecha­ni­cal Sci­ence and Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Mate­ri­als Sci­ence, Chair of Mate­ri­als Sci­ence and Nano­tech­no­logy

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­n­e­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The posi­tion, which is embed­ded in the 2nd Ger­man-Greece Rese­arch and Inno­va­tion pro­gram of BMBF, pro­ject NAN­O­FUM, will start at the ear­liest pos­si­ble date, sub­ject to resour­ces being avail­able. The posi­tion is limi­ted for 3 years. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - Wiss­ZeitVG).
The sci­en­ti­fic activi­ties of the Chair of Mate­ri­als Sci­ence and Nano­tech­no­logy (Prof. Dr. G. Cuni­berti) are focu­sed on deve­lo­ping non-con­ven­tio­nal stra­te­gies for novel mate­ri­als and devices with intrin­sic nanos­cale com­ple­xity.

Work­ing field:

The goal of the joint rese­arch pro­ject NAN­O­FUM is the deve­lop­ment of car­bon nanotube-based wire­less gas sen­sors and their app­li­ca­tion in stored pro­duct pro­tec­tion and food safety. The rese­arch work is focu­sed on the fabri­ca­tion of sen­sor chips based on car­bon nanotu­bes (CNT) and cha­rac­te­ri­sa­tion of sen­sor pro­per­ties under gas expo­sure. Pro­ject manage­ment (rea­li­sa­tion of the pro­ject pro­gram, wri­ting pro­ject reports) is the part of the work as well. The rese­arch work will be rea­li­sed at the Insti­tute of Mate­ri­als Sci­ence in a tight col­la­bo­ra­tion with pro­ject part­ners from Ger­man and Greek com­pa­nies and rese­arch cen­ter.
