The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut is one of the world-wide leading institutes for applied research on high-power diode lasers and microwave components & systems. Based on III-V semiconductors, its research activities range from design & simulation, semiconductor processing, mounting & packaging to ready-to ship modules.
In close cooperation with its partners in the research community and industry, FBH transfers its results into applications in e.g. communications, laser and space technology. FBH also conducts basic investigations on nitrides for future applications.
The FBH is part of the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V. and is a member of the Leibniz Association.
The business area GaN Optoelectronics is seeking a Scientific Assistant - Chip technology of GaN diode lasers - KZ 05/13
The field of work comprises the planning and supervision of the chip processing of GaN diode lasers in the cleanroom of FBH. Optimized chip designs, technological concepts for improving the device performance as well as novel types of diode lasers (e.g. DFB laser) are to be developed. Moreover, measurements of the diode lasers are to be conducted, coordinated and evaluated, respectively.
This position requires a university degree (master/diploma) in electrical engineering, physics or microsystems technology. We expect the candidate to show commitment, flexibility and to be able to perform self-driven investigative work during the development process, as well as demonstrate perseverance and conscientiousness. Training and experience in the areas of diode lasers, semiconductor chip technology and electro-optical device characterization is preferred. Diode lasers are fabricated in a multi-stage process in collaboration with multiple experts in the areas of simulation, epitaxy, mounting and device characterization, so strong teamwork skills and good English skills are therefore a prerequisite. The work is partially within joint research projects and requires to make precise arrangements with external collaborators.
Salary will follow the German TVöD pay scales. The position is available starting August 2013 for an initial time frame of two years. It is possible to combine this position with studies toward a PhD degree.
FBH is an equal opportunity employer. Female candidates are encouraged to apply. Among equally qualified applicants preference will be given to handicapped candidates.
Please submit your application by June 30th, 2013 indicating the corresponding registration number (KZ).
