Graduated Physicist or Graduated Engineer in Electrical Engineering
Institution: Niedersaechsische Technische Hochschule
Position: PhD Position
Available from: 07/09/2009
Within the framework of the „Niedersaechsische Technische Hochschule“ (NTH) we offer a position for a
graduated physicist or a graduated engineer in electrical engineering
to participate in the NTH School for Contacts in Nanosystems. This school offers the opportunity to obtain a doctor´s degree (PhD or Dr.-Ing.). The successful candidate will be paid in the payment group “E13” (75%) for 30 months. We encourage female scientists and also handicapped persons to apply in case the offered job is suitable for them.
The subject of the work is concerning interacting effects in contacting semiconductor nanostructures. In particular, the interaction between THz radiation and graphene structures shall be investigated. For this, a THz laser at the Technical University Braunschweig is available. The preparation and contacting of the graphene samples can be performed in the cleanroom center of the “Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt” (PTB). After the preparation, the graphene samples will be tested and characterized by magnetotransport measurements. In case the samples are suitable, further THz-optical investigations shall follow. The analysis of the data can be performed with the support of theoreticians at the Technische Universitaet Braunschweig and at the Leibniz Universitaet Hannover.
You should apply for this position if you have completed your graduation in physics or in electrical engineering with the grade “good” or better. Practical experiences in cryotechniques, in handling superconducting magnet systems and in semiconductor physics are advantageous. Your should speak and write English fluently, and you should be willing to learn German during your stay in Germany.
