Funded Research Associate and PhD positions; at Faculty of Mechanical Science and Engineering; Institute of Materials Science the Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology; at Institute of Integrative Biology; Technical University Dresden; in Germany

At the Institute of Materials Science the Chair of Materials Science and
Nanotechnology offers, subjected to resources being available, the position of a

Research Associate / PhD student
(Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L) 

The position, which is embedded in the EU project “Mechanics with Molecules” (MEMO),
will start at the earliest possible date and entails 75% of the fulltime weekly hours. It is
limited for three years. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research
Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG). The position offers the
chance to obtain further academic qualification (e.g. PhD).
The scientific activities of the Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology
(Prof. G. Cuniberti) are focused on developing non-conventional strategies for novel
materials and devices with intrinsic nanoscale complexity.
The Molecular Manipulation and Nanomachines group (Dr. Francesca Moresco) investigates
the mechanical and electronic properties of organic molecules on surfaces by scanning
probe microscopy at low temperature (LT-STM). The group actively participates in several
German and European networks for the development of molecular and organic electronics,
like the Cluster of Excellence cfaed (, the EU Project PAMS
(, and the International Helmholtz Research School NANONET
Tasks: The EU FET-Open project MEMO aims to study the transmission of motion from
molecule to molecule towards the construction of an atomic scale mechanical calculator.
The successful candidate will use LT-STM to experimentally investigate the mechanical and
electronic properties of single molecules, controlling the rotation and the work delivered at
the atomic scale.
Requirements: excellent university degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or a
closely related area, excellent communication and writing skills in English, personal initiative,
independent work, as well as the ability to work in a team. Experience in scanning probe
microscopy, experimental surface science, or ultra-high vacuum (UHV) is desirable.
