PostDoc: MBE growth kinetics and doping of (Ga,Al)2O3

The Paul Drude Institute (PDI) performs basic research as a lively symbiosis of materials science and solid state physics. Our research aims at inspiring and demonstrating new functionalities for future information technologies. As a member of the Leibniz Gemeinschaft and Forschungsverbund Berlin we are an independent research institute with about 110 employees. We are located in the very heart of the city near Gendarmenmarkt. You may find more details at www.pdi-berlin.de

PostDoc: MBE growth kinetics and doping of (Ga,Al)2O3

PDI has excellent expertise and facilities for the growth and investigation of semiconductors and is leading a newly funded, Berlin-based Leibniz Science-Campus „Growth and fundamentals of oxides for electronic applications“ (GraFOx). GraFOx includes groups from Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung, Fritz-Haber-Institut, Humboldt-Universität and Technische Universität Berlin.


Within GraFOx we are seeking you as a PostDoc for a project on the investigation of the growth and doping of (In,Ga,Al)2O3 and their heterostructures by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy. Besides device-quality material with defined doping, the project aims at improved modelling of the growth kinetics. The materials focus will be on the pure Ga2O3, Al-containing oxides (due to their large band gap), and on establishing hydrogen doping. Your research includes the basic structural and electrical characterization.


You should have a PhD in experimental solid state physics or related fields as well as experience with epitaxy, materials characterization, and publication. We are looking for a team player with a high level of communication skills and the assertiveness to work in a highly motivated team of researchers and technicians, and to collaborate with and help advising PhD students.


The position is available as of now and its duration is presently limited to 1 years with an optional extension. Payment is according to TVöD (Treaty for German public service). PDI is an equal opportunity employer. Among equally qualified applicants preference will be given to disabled candidates.


Please submit your application via email to jobs@pdi-berlin.de including the project number C3.3 in the subject until June 16, 2017. For questions on the project see http://grafox.pdi-berlin.de/ or contact Dr. Oliver Bierwagen, bierwagen@pdi-berlin.de
