3D Matter Made to Order

Opportunities at the Cluster 3DMM2O

Below, you find opportunities to become a part of the Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter Made to Order.

Please note that the Application Portal of the HEiKA Graduate School on "Functional Materials" is open regardless of positions currently advertised on this site.

Open Positions at KIT

Postdoctoral Position: Materials scientist (f / m / d) or physicist (f / m / d) with a PhD degree

Category

Postdoctoral Researchers (m/f/d)

Research Group

Prof. Dr. Jasmin Aghassi

Funding
Salary category 13, depending on the fulfillment of professional and personal requirements.

Details of the project

In an interdisciplinary team, within the 3D Matter Made to Order (3DMM2O) excellence cluster, you will research the applicability of printable functional materials on pre-structured substrates. Thereby, the wetting behavior of the deposited materials will be studied, as well as the interface quality between various materials. The interfaces are evaluated by the means of resistance measurements and SEM images. With the gained knowledge, design strategies for printed resistor arrays will be developed. These resistor arrays are used to process sensor data, in various fields, such as biology or wearables. 

Requirements

The applicant should hold a university degree (Diploma / Masters) in materials science or physics with a completed doctorate. We expect experimental knowledge in the development of functional inks and printing technologies, with the aim to print functional materials on flexible and solid substrates. Interest and the ability to collaborate across various research disciplines are required.

Please send you application including resume and university transcripts via email to Jasmin Aghassi (jasmin.aghassi(at)kit.edu).

Salary category 13, depending on the fulfillment of professional and personal requirements.

Details of the project

In an interdisciplinary team, within the 3D Matter Made to Order (3DMM2O) excellence cluster, you will re-search the applicability of printable functional materials on pre-structured substrates. Thereby, the wetting behavior of the deposited materials will be studied, as well as the interface quality between various materials. The interfaces are evaluated by the means of resistance measurements and SEM images. With the gained knowledge, design strategies for printed resistor arrays will be developed. These resistor arrays are used to process sensor data, in various fields, such as biology or wearables. With other PhD students or postdoc-toral researchers, an electronic design flow for fabricating read out systems will be developed. The possibility to pursue a Doctorate (PhD) degree exists.

Requirements

The applicant should hold a university degree (Diploma / Masters) in materials science or physics. We expect experimental knowledge in the development of functional inks and printing technologies, with the aim to print functional materials on flexible and solid substrates. Interest and the ability to collaborate across various research disciplines are required.

Open Positions at Uni HD

Postdoc Position: DNA Nanotechnology for De Novo Assembly of for Synthetic Cells

Category

Postdoctoral Researchers (m/f/d)

Research Group

Biophysical Engineering Group, Dr. Kerstin Göpfrich

Details of the project

Are you fascinated by the idea to build a synthetic cell from scratch? Would you like to work with DNA origami, lipid membranes, 3D printing, microfluidics, superresolution microscopy or high-speed AFM? Are you looking for a young and friendly, supportive and hard-working research group?

The independent Max Planck Research Group Biophysical Engineering aims to reconstruct synthetic cells and cell-like behavior from the bottom up. We are looking for highly motivated early-career researchers, in particular at post-doc level, with a strong quantitative background in physics, biophysics, chemical engineering, biotechnology or similar.

Requirements

  • PhD degree in biophysics, physical chemistry, chemical engineering or a similar subject
  • Experience in DNA nanotechnology / lipid membranes / microfluidics and/or atomic force microscopy, programming and quantitative data analysis
  • Fluency in English in word and writing (German not required)

Interested? Find out more (www.goepfrichgroup.de) and get in touch via email (kerstin.goepfrich(at)mr.mpg.de) with your CV, publication list, your interests and contacts for two letters of reference. We are looking forward to hear from you!

Research Group

Research Group Prof. Dr. Uwe Bunz

Funding

TVL E13 – 67% (3 years)

Details of the project

The aim is to develop novel coatings for the construction of conductive 3D structures based on functional materials by UV lithography / direct laser writing. Synthesis and characterization comprise 50%, the other half of the time should be devoted to the investigation of device properties. Project A3 is located within the Cluster of Excellence "3DMM2O".

Requirements

  • Very good master's degree in chemistry

We are looking forward to your application with the usual documents in a PDF file to Dr. Kai Seehafer (Kai.Seehafer(at)oci.uni-heidelberg.de)
