As a member of the research group High-Performance Si Technologies within the department Technology you will contribute to research into physics and technology of semiconductor devices for leading-edge applications in high-frequency electronics and quantum technology. Your tasks will include the electrical characterization of semiconductor devices at cryogenic temperatures and the investigation of the fundamental charge carrier transport processes that govern device operation at these extreme conditions. An international team of experienced scientists as well as PhD students is looking forward to you. Flat hierarchies and mutual support are important to us. We see diversity of perspectives as a great advantage for our team. We strive for a balanced gender mix in our team.
Your PhD project:
Within the doctorate with the working title “Development and characterization of SiGe heterojunction bipolar transistors for cryogenic applications”, it is intended to explore and to optimize transistor characteristics for operation at cryogenic temperatures addressing emerging applications in quantum technology. The research will be carried out in close collaboration with leading teams in the field. We aim together for a completion within 3-5 years. After one and a half years, the topic will be finally defined and the contract duration will be adjusted accordingly by mutual agreement to the foreseeable doctoral period.
Do research in a challenging, multinational environment giving you excellent career opportunities. You will have the chance to establish international reputation at the edge of top-notch technologies. An orientation guide will help you to quickly integrate into the institute and to familiarize yourself with the field.
