3 Research Fellows

 Technische Universität Dresden  Dresden
At TU Dresden, the Cluster of Excellence Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) the Chair of Molecular Functional Materials offers, subject to granted funds, three positions as
Research Fellow
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
Research area:
Synthesis of High Performance 2D Materials by Bottom-Up and Top-Down approaches
cfaed Investigators:
Prof. Dr. Xinliang Feng
The positions start presumably on 01.07.2016 and are fixed-term for 3 years. The period of employment is governed by § 2 Fixed-Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG). The positions offer the chance to obtain further academic qualification (e.g. habilitation thesis).
We are in process of building up a new junior research group “Graphene Center Dresden” (GRAPHD) consisting of a highly interdisciplinary team of young scientists with the long-term vision of developing materials for future electronic systems. Graphene and other 2D nanomaterials have emerged as outstanding candidates for a great number of electronic applications. The goal of this research is to synthesize graphene nanoribbons and related conjugated 2D organic materials bearing electronic functions. Within the junior research group, protocols will be established from synthesis towards commercialization.
The successful candidate will: design and synthesize graphene nanoribbons with novel edge structures; design and synthesize novel 2D organic materials with electronic functions, managing projects and guiding PhD students.
We aim at attracting the best talents in the respective research fields and expect the following: university degree and PhD in materials science, chemistry, physics, engineering or similar (PhD degree must be gained after March 2012); previous experiences in organic or polymer synthesis, very good interpersonal and communication skills; in particular, the ability to effectively work in collaborative research efforts; an independent, target- and solution-driven work attitude; inter- and multidisciplinary thinking; strong motivation and interest to join one of the most ambitious interdisciplinary research clusters; fluency in English - written and oral.
What we offer
You will join a team of enthusiastic scientists who pursue creatively their individual research agenda inspired by the cluster’s innovative approach and support. Your postdoctoral research will be fostered by the cfaed philosophy to promote young researchers, which includes: access to state of the art research of leading academic institutes; promotion of gender equality and family-friendly work environment.
Informal enquiries can be submitted to Prof. Dr. Xinliang Feng, Tel +49 (351) 463 43250; Email: xinliang.feng@tu-dresden.de.
Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.

Application Procedure
Your application (in English only) should include: motivation letter, CV, copy of degree certificate, transcript of grades (i.e. the official list of coursework including your grades) and proof of English language skills. Complete applications should be submitted preferably by e-mail as one single PDF-document quoting the reference number 1603_ESF-GRAPHD in the subject header to recruiting.cfaed@tu-dresden.de (Please note: We are currently not able to receive electronically signed and encrypted data.) or alternatively by post to: TU Dresden, cfaed, Frau Störmer, 01062 Dresden, Germany. The closing date for applications is 20.04.2016 (stamped arrival date of the university central mail service applies). Please submit copies only, as your application will not be returned to you. Expenses incurred in attending interviews cannot be reimbursed.
