Research Staff Member/PhD student (m/f/d)

Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH), Berlin

The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH) within the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V., is a leading international research institute that studies diode lasers, LEDs and microwave devices.

On the basis of III/V semiconductors, it researches and implements components and systems for applications in communications, traffic and production technology, medicine and biotechnology. It covers the entire value chain from design to ready-for-delivery systems.

For our Department Power Electronics we are looking for a

Research Staff Member/PhD student (m/f/d)

(Reference number 14/20)

Due to its outstanding physical properties, the semiconductor material β-Ga2O3 has the potential to significantly improve the efficiency of power converters. As part of current research activities at FBH, vertical transistor structures based on β-Ga2O3 have to be developed, fabricated and electrically characterized. In order to achieve this goal, important parameters in component design have to be defined already in the development phase. This requires the latest device simulation software. By comparing the experimentally verified performances of the processed transistor structures with the simulation results, continuous optimizations of the device design can be carried out along the process.

In order to carry out these activities, we are looking for a young scientist from the field of engineering, natural sciences or materials science with significant experience in semiconductor physics and in the use of simulation software.

Candidates must have successfully completed their university education (master’s degree, diploma) in the field of physics, electrical engineering or materials science and verify education in semiconductor device physics.

Teamwork and committed, independent work as well as very good knowledge of the English language, both spoken and written, are required. Appropriate German language skills are desired. There is also the possibility to pursue a PhD. The position can be filled immediately and is initially limited to two years. 

Payment is according to TVöD (collective salary scheme for German public service). FBH is an equal-opportunity employer. Female candidates are encouraged to apply. Among equally qualified applicants, preference will be given to handicapped candidates.
