Im Her­zen der Lau­sitz ver­bin­det die BTU her­aus­ra­gende inter­na­tio­nale For­schung mit zukunfts­ori­en­tier­ter Lehre. Sie leis­tet mit Wis­sens-, Tech­no­lo­gie­trans­fer und Wei­ter­bil­dung einen wich­ti­gen Bei­trag für Gesell­schaft, Kul­tur und Wirt­schaft. Als Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät bie­tet die BTU ein bun­des­weit ein­zig­ar­ti­ges Lehr­kon­zept: Bei uns kön­nen Stu­di­en­gänge uni­ver­si­tär, fach­hoch­schu­lisch und dual stu­diert wer­den.

Pro­fess­or­ship in Nano­struc­tures, 2D-Sys­tems and Lay­ers (W3) in per­sonal union with the

man­age­ment of the IKZ depart­ment
“Nano­struc­tures and Lay­ers”

Working field:

This chair is inten­ded to advance the devel­op­ment of long-term per­spect­ives in the field of crys­tal­line nano­struc­tures, 2D sys­tems and thin films and to provide a future-proof stra­tegic pos­i­tion­ing of the IKZ & the BTU in this field via phys­ical-chem­ical syn­thesis meth­ods.

Through the tar­geted applic­a­tion of pro­cesses in sur­face phys­ics and sur­face chem­istry, research activ­it­ies in the con­text of the syn­thesis of nano­struc­tures, 2D-sys­tems & coat­ings are to be advanced, in order to enable, for example, the con­trol of self-lim­it­ing growth and struc­ture form­a­tion pro­cesses on the nano­meter scale (e. g. mono­layer lim­it­a­tion). These research activ­it­ies focus on the elu­cid­a­tion of fun­da­mental phe­nom­ena as well as on the fur­ther devel­op­ment of mater­i­als and tech­no­lo­gies for spe­cific applic­a­tions. Apart from exist­ing pro­jects (SiGe quantum mater­i­als, fer­ro­elec­tric lay­ers, gal­lium oxide power elec­tron­ics, twis­ted perov-skite sys­tems, etc.), con­cepts for innov­at­ive syn­thesis meth­ods (growth and layer trans­fer approaches) and for new types of crys­tal­line mater­i­als (epi­taxial or stacked mater­ial com­bin­a­tions from the field of 2D mater­i­als, semi­con­duct­ors and oxides) are to be researched.

The pro­fess­or­ship will be based at the IKZ (Ber­lin-Adler­shof) and will com­prise the man­age­ment of the depart­ment “Nano­struc­tures and Lay­ers”. The joint pro­fess­or­ship will be filled accord­ing to the Jülich model and includes the oblig­a­tion to teach courses of at least two semester hours per week at the BTU. Lec­tures/courses are also to be held in Eng­lish. The pro­fess­or­ship is to strengthen the cooper­a­tion in research between the IKZ and the BTU. This refers in par­tic­u­lar to the use of new mater­i­als in pro­to­typ­ical com­pon­ents in close cooper­a­tion with the For­lab FAMOS as well as joint research pro­jects for the elu­cid­a­tion of pro­cesses in sur­face phys­ics, as well as their spec­tro-micro­scopic char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion. Fur­ther oppor­tun­it­ies exist in the field of digit­al­iz­a­tion of mater­i­als sci­ence through data ana­lysis meth­ods using Big Data and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI).

Other duties res­ult from the require­ments set by § 42 Branden­bur­gisches Hoch­schul­ge­setz (Higher Edu­ca­tion Act of the State of Branden­burg - BbgHG) in con­junc­tion with § 3 BbgHG.


Eli­gible can­did­ates are expec­ted to have an inter­na­tion­ally proven sci­entific track record and to have dis­tin­guished them­selves in the mater­ial syn­thesis (growth (e. g. MBE, PLD, CVD) and/or layer trans­fer (e. g. 2D mater­i­als, micro­struc­tures)) of innov­at­ive crys­tal­line mater­i­als with poten­tial for tech­no­lo­gical applic­a­tions in elec­tron­ics and photon­ics over the last few years. Excel­lent know­ledge in the field of mod­ern mater­ial char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion (labor­at­ory and/or syn­chro­tron meth­ods) is another import­ant cri­terion for a suc­cess­ful applic­a­tion. Know-how and will­ing­ness to col­lab­or­ate in the field of digit­al­iz­a­tion of mater­i­als sci­ence are an addi­tional advant­age. Out­stand­ing com­mu­nic­a­tion skills to facil­it­ate col­lab­or­a­tion in the Ber­lin-Branden­burg research area are a must. The applic­ant should have held lead­er­ship pos­i­tions in research and devel­op­ment and gained exper­i­ence in the pro­cure­ment of third-party fund­ing as well as in the imple­ment­a­tion of third-party fun­ded pro­jects. The research top­ics should be rel­ev­ant to the DFG, BMBF, BMWK, or com­par­able inter­na­tional EU research fund­ing insti­tu­tions.

Please refer to §§ 41 para­graph 1 no. 1 - 4a and 43 BbgHG for Pre­requis­ites and con­di­tions of employ­ment.
