  • analysis of adhesion, molecular interfaces, and stability of the devices,
  • interaction with partners from industry and academia in the consortium,
  • documentation and dissemination of results.

Your profile

  • successful PhD in chemistry, materials science, electrical engineering, or a related field,
  • strong and proven interest in printed electronics,
  • very good communication and writing skills, thorough command of the English language. German language knowledge is beneficial but no requisite.

Your benefits

  • scientifically interesting and technically relevant challenges in a motivated research group that collaborates with leading researchers and companies,
