Research positions for doctoral students (m/w/d) Research Training Group (RTG) on Tip- and laser-based 3D-Nanofabrication in extended macroscopic working areas (NanoFab)

The Research Training Group (RTG) on Tip- and laser-based 3D-Nanofabrication in
extended macroscopic working areas (NanoFab) at the Technische Universität Ilmenau
offers the following open positions:
13 full-time research positions
for doctoral students
The positions start on April 1st, 2020. In exceptional cases the candidates can be appointed
slightly earlier or later. The research positions have a duration of three years and are paid
according to the TV-L E13 scale of the German public sector.
The aim of this proposal is to synergistically combine sophisticated nanofabrication techniques
with the outstanding capabilities of Nanopositioning- and Nanomeasuring machines (NPM
machines) so that new, multi-scale solutions arise for nanofabrication in large areas. It is
to be examined to what extent smallest features can be produced efficiently in large areas
by combining the latest AFM tip-based nanofabrication techniques with the NPM technique.
Likewise, laser-based subwavelength processing methods in conjunction with the NPM-technology
shall open up the possibility to enable truly 3D nanofabrication with highest precision
on optical and particulary curved precision surfaces.
The RTG is sponsored by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research
Foundation, DFG). Within the RTG, the basic physics of these technologies shall be
explored to perform new approaches for high-level advanced nanofabrication technologies
in extended ranges.
The RTG provides a creative and inspiring environment, excellent laboratory facilities, for
example at the Centre of Micro- and Nanotechnologies or several NPM-machines as a
high-qualified experimental platform. The RTG strongly supports students wishing complete
their PhD studies within a three years period.
Further details can be found at https://www.tu-ilmenau.de/nanofab/.
Successful candidates for the research positions should have
an excellent Diploma or Master degree, preferably in mechanical engineering, electrical
engineering, or physics,
an excellent knowledge of the English language,
a high motivation for interdisciplinary work in an international scientific team, and the
commitment to complete the doctoral program within three years.
Experience in either precision measurement, precision engineering, tip-based nanofabrication,
optical and laser technologies or automatic control is desirable, but not required.
The Technische Universität Ilmenau aims to establish gender equality and highly encourages
women to apply. Handicapped applicants with identical qualification will be considered with
priority. Special services are available concerning all social matters.
