Scientific member of staff / (m/w/d) Development of an optical clock based on Rubidium two-photon spectroscopy
Gustav-Kirchhoff-Straße 4, 12489 Berlin, Deutschland
With Professional Experience
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 Joint Lab Integrated Quantum Sensors, we are looking for a research staff member for development, set-up and characterization of optical clocks based on Rubidium two-photon spectroscopy using vapor cells.
(Reference number 17/22)Your activities
Your work will focus on the development, set-up and characterization of an optical frequency reference for operation as an optical clock in satellite-based navigation. The vapor cell based spectroscopy unit will be developed as an "engineering model" and demonstrated as an optical clock. Your tasks will also include the development and control of the processes for product assurance including the preparation of the corresponding documentation.
You have completed a scientific university degree (master's/diploma) in physics, materials science or a related field in natural or engineering science. A doctorate in physics or a similar field with a focus on optics or laser technology is desirable.
You are enthusiastic about physical-technical topics with direct application relevance. Ideally, you have knowledge in one or more of the following areas
Experience in development and assembly of integrated optical systems, semiconductor structures (incl. thermal, electrical and mechanical design) as well as programming skills are desirable.
You ideally have experience in project work, project coordination and industrial projects. The ability to function in a team as well as to work independently, and a good knowledge of the English language are required.
We offer a challenging and interdisciplinary activity. The work is carried out in close cooperation with national partners from academia and industry. You can expect a collegial atmosphere, a family-friendly environment and an extensive technical infrastructure in several clean rooms as well as assembly and measurement laboratories.
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.
