The Nanotechnology Research Group at the Institute of Micro- and Nanotechnology Germany offers 2 Doctoral Thesis Research Positions. Applicants must have a (Diploma / Masters) in chemistry, physics, materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering degree. Priority is given to women and disabled persons. Funding is available for two years. The successful candidate will be responsible for research in the field of mounting electronic components made of silicon and III / V semiconductors. Application deadline is November 30th, 2013.. The successful candidate will be responsible for research in the field of mounting electronic components made of silicon and III / V semiconductors. The physical principle of positioning and electrical connection are based on novel surface tension-based self-assembly principles and transfer techniques. The tasks involve: • Independent scientific research work in the field of (1) Self-organized assembly of semiconductor devices or (2) transfer-based assembly of semiconductor devices. • Planning, implementation and evaluation of experimental work. • The design and implementation of the necessary physical setups and its transfer to a prototype machine and development of a process for industrial use. • Proof of applicability which is initially specified by the third-party project. In Project 1 research is in close collaboration with an industrial partner in the lighting industry (industries), to develop a low-cost assembly process of LED components on large scale substrates. Project 2 funded through the DFG involves research in the field of integration of components on stretchable substrates related to biomedical applications. Technische Universität Ilmenau has been awarded the Total E-Quality-predicate. It strongly urges women to apply. Disabled persons, having the same aptitude and professional qualifications, have priority in hiring.. This position is for pursuing PhD Research at Ilmenau University of Technology in Germany. The research areas of this scholarship are:
