Junior Group Research Leader (f/m/d) "In-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy"
Published(86 days ago)
Deadline for applications(70 days ago)
Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung (IKZ)Berlin
The Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung (IKZ) is a leading research institution in the area of science & technology as well as service & transfer of crystalline
materials. Our goal is to enable solutions for urgent societal challenges (e.g. communication, artificial intelligence, climate protection, health etc.). by modern
electronic & photonic technologies. The work covers the full spectrum from basic over applied research up to pre-industrial development and is performed in collaboration
with national and international partners from university, academy and industry. The institute is part of Forschungsverbund Berlin
(https://www.fv-berlin.de/) and a member
of the Leibniz Association. You can find more details on the institute webpage: www.ikz-berlin.de.
We are looking for a member of the Electron Microscopy group at the earliest possible date
Junior Group Research Leader (m/f/d) "In-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy"
IKZ has excellent expertise and facilities for the in-situ characterization of semiconductors and oxides, among them an aberration corrected TEM/STEM, equipped with a fast
camera (up to 400 fps), two in situ TEM-holders that permit experiments at atmospheric pressure and under biasing, both up to high temperatures. Besides this a dual beam with
micromanipulators, EDX, EBSD ,WDS and a high resolution SEM with STEM detector and CL are available.
We are seeking for a postdoctoral scientist that builds up a junior research group in the field of in-situ transmission electron microscopy. The junior research group is
