We are seeking highly motivated doctoral researchers with an MSc, or equivalent, in materials science, chemistry, mechanical engineering, physics, mathematics, or electrical engineering. Ideal candidates have clearly demonstrated excellence through their academic record and timely completion of BSc and MSc studies, in addition to having established interest and experience in the scientific area related to the IGK 2495. Proficient oral and written communication skills in English are required. Doctoral researchers will work closely with various partners in both Germany and Japan, necessitating teamwork and interpersonal skills.
We offer a vibrant research environment, where you will work collaboratively with an international team of German and Japanese scientists and engineers on various aspects of electro-optical-mechanical materials and devices. The international training group will offer a variety of educational and training activities, such as tutorials, hands-on workshops, and yearly summer schools, to support doctoral researchers during their projects as well as develop intercultural training. As part of each project, an extended research stay (6 to 12 months) at our partner institute (Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan) is expected. We strive for an open and inclusive research environment.
The salary is according to German standard (E13 TL-V). All positions will be for 3 years.
The Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is interested in increasing the share of women in research and teaching positions and, therefore, explicitly encourages female candidates to apply.
