The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH) is an application-oriented research institute in the fields of high-frequency electronics, photonics and
quantum physics. It researches electronic and optical components, modules and systems based on compound semiconductors. These devices are key enablers that address the needs of today’s
society in fields like communications, energy, health, and mobility. It covers the entire value chain from design to ready-for-delivery systems.
In the Wide-Bandgap Electronics Department we are looking for a research staff member for mm-wave RF GaN transistor design and processing.
Reference number 05/23
You design and realize improved GaN-based RF transistors to extend their frequency range to applications beyond 30 GHz. For this purpose, new technology modules in front-end processing
have to be developed and integrated into the existing GaN MMIC technology. You will have strong interaction with our groups for GaN epitaxy, front-end processing, RF characterization and
MMIC design. You publish the results in scientific papers and also take responsibilities for achieving project-related milestones.
Candidates must have successfully completed their university education (master’s degree, diploma) in electrical engineering, physics, or in a related discipline. You have a good background
in semiconductor technology and in RF electronics. Practical experience in semiconductor device processing is of advantage. You feel challenged by an interdisciplinary research topic covering
RF electronics and materials technology. You enjoy working in laboratory and cleanroom environments. Team working as well as independent working skills and a professional English language are
essential for this position. German language skills are helpful.
We offer challenging and interdisciplinary work on innovative RF-electronics semiconductor devices. If applicable we give the opportunity to pursue a PhD degree. Employment, remuneration and
social benefits are based on the collective agreement for the public sector (TVöD Bund). The position can be filled immediately and is initially limited to two years.
FBH is an equal-opportunity employer and actively supports the compatibility of family and career. Particular attention is paid to gender equality. The Institute strives to increase the
proportion of women in this area. Female candidates are encouraged to apply. Among equally qualified applicants, preference will be given to handicapped candidates.
