Rese­arch Assist­ant - 0.75 work­ing time - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len - 1st qual­i­fic­a­tion period (PhD can­did­ate)

under the reserve that funds are gran­ted

At the Insti­tute of Optics and Atomic Phys­ics of TU Ber­lin the research group Non­lin­ear Optics of Nano­struc­tures (Prof. Wog­gon) deals with the opto-elec­tronic prop­er­ties of nano­scopic mater­i­als and func­tional struc­tures struc­tures.

The pro­ject is related to the optical and elec­tronic prop­er­ties of nano­struc­tures and related 2D mater­i­als such as trans­ition­metal-dichal­co­gen­ides and oth­ers. These two dimen­sional semi­con­duct­ors exhibit unique, new mater­ial prop­er­ties, and are ideally suited to invest­ig­ate basic aspects of 2D sys­tems. The pro­ject focuses on examin­ing their micro­scopic prop­er­ties, e.g. the coher­ence of optic­ally pre­pared states, the ultra­fast dynam­ics and the exciton-phonon coup­ling, as well as their con­trolled modi­fic­a­tion in het­ero­struc­tures and by external fields.

Work­ing field:

Embed­ded in a main research line of the work group on 2D mater­i­als it is planned to invest­ig­ate the optical and elec­tronic prop­er­ties of semi­con­ductor nano­struc­tures and fur­ther 2D sys­tems. The there­fore applied meth­ods include pho­to­lu­min­es­cence, ultra­fast pump-probe het­ero­dyne tech­niques, 2D-four-wave mix­ing and two photon spec­tro­scopy. In close cooper­a­tion with inter­na­tion­ally renowned research groups from syn­thesis and the­ory as part­ners, the exper­i­mental find­ings shall then be modeled. Con­tri­bu­tion to teach­ing for Bach­elor and Mas­ter stu­dents in Phys­ics is expec­ted.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in phys­ics or phys­ical chem­istry; an above aver­age com­ple­tion of an exper­i­mental/the­or­et­ical dip­lom/mas­ter thesis desired. Exper­i­ence in at least one of the areas nanosys­tems, semi­con­ductor phys­ics, ultra­fast phys­ics/spec­tro­scopy or (non­lin­ear) optics is desir­able. Pro­gram­ming exper­i­ence is of advant­age for work­ing on exper­i­mental ques­tions and mod­el­ling. Good know­ledge of Ger­man and Eng­lish lan­guage is neces­sary.

For fur­ther inquir­ies and inform­a­tion please con­tact Dr. Nina Owschimikow (, Tel.: +49 (0)30 314-28674).
