Published(162 days ago)
Deadline for applications(113 days ago)
Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ) - Leibniz AssociationBerlin
The Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ) is a leading research institution in the area of crystal growth of technologically important materials for micro-, opto- and power electronics, sensors, optics and laser technology. This ranges from explorative fundamental research to pre-industrial development. It is part of Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V. and a member of the Leibniz Association. You may find more details at www.ikz-berlin.de.
Commencing, May 2018 there is a job opening in the Center for Laser-Materials (ZLM) at the IKZ
Post-doctoral researcher (m/f)
Growth and characterization of oxide laser materials
The main tasks are the growth of rare-earth doped oxide laser materials by the Czochralski- and the optical floating zone method as well as the optical characterization of these crystalline materials.
This characterization includes spectroscopic analyses as well as the investigations on the laser characteristics of the grown materials. The labs of the Center for Laser Materials are currently set up, therefore we also expect participation in setting up new and improving existing growth and characterization facilities. Furthermore, the candidate will be involved in project acquisition.
The aim of the research performed in this position is the development of new and the optimization of the structural and optical quality of known laser materials for applications in novel laser systems in industry and research.
Studies of physics, photonics, chemistry or a related topic and a PhD in this field
Experience in the field of crystal growth, optical spectroscopy and laser characterization
Good knowledge of English language, basic knowledge of German language
Practical experience in hard- and software (Labview) required for electronic data acquisition
Hands-on mentality and goal-oriented, collaborative work style in a team of researchers and technicians.
The position is available from May 2018 and its duration is initially limited to two years. Payment is according to TVöD (collective labour agreement for German public service). IKZ is an equal opportunity employer. Therefore, female candidates are encouraged to apply and will be preferred in case of adequate qualification.
