Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt am Main is one of the largest universities in Germany with about 48.000 students and about 5.000 employees. Founded in 1914 by
Frankfurt citizens and since 2008 operating again in the legal form of a foundation, Goethe University possesses a high degree of independence, modernity and diversity of
disciplines. As a comprehensive university, Goethe University Frankfurt offers more than 100 fields of study on five campuses in a total of 16 faculties and possesses an outstanding research strength.
The Physics Department of Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main (Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Terahertz Physics Group, Prof. Dr. Hartmut Roskos) advertises a position for a
for research in the field of s-SNOM nanoscopy on two-dimensional van-der-Waals materials and device structure made of these. Subjects of the research are both the contactless determination of
material properties (e. g. the electrical conductivity, layer structure of composites) and the investigation of polaritons in device structures (e. g. transistor structures). The position is to
be filled as soon as possible. Appointments will be made for an initial period of three years. The salary grade is based on the job characteristics of the collective agreement (TV-G-U) applicable
to Goethe-University. The research group operates two home-built s-SNOM measurement systems in the VIS/NIR, IR and at THz frequencies (all at room temperature). Participation in the continued
optimization of the systems is expected. Taking part in teaching in tutorials, teaching laboratories and/or seminars is an obligation. As a Postdoc, you are expected to also define your own
research projects and to acquire the required funding in the group’s area of research.
Applicants are expected to have a M.Sc. degree in physics (preferably solid-state physics), electrical engineering (with a focus on electronic devices) or materials sciences (with a focus on
electronic properties of matter). Postdocs must have practical experience with either s-SNOM or THz-device research – for PhD candidates, this is desirable but optional. Experience in the physics
and handling of 2D materials is advantageous. Goethe University is committed to gender equality and therefore strongly encourages women to apply. Disabled People will be given priority in the case
of equal qualifications.
Please send inquiries and applications (CV, publications list, a brief motivation letter, and contacts for references) until 29.09.2021, to Ms. Sanchez-Maroto:
