Open Positions

We are interested in outstanding and highly motivated candidates who would like to work in an inspiring environment at the frontiers of materials characterization by advanced electron microscopy methods.

Post-doctoral position: Transmission Electron Microscopy of Nucleation Reactions and Advanced Data Analysis

Goal of the project is the investigation of nucleation phenomena at high spatial and high temporal resolution by controlling nucleation reactions. The project is part of an extensive team effort which involves theoretical support as well. An important aspect of this position is the development and/or implementation of new data analysis methods applied to large data files.

PhD position: In-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy Studies of Ferroelectric Domain Formation and Polarization Switching

The aim of this project is to understand the microscopic mechanisms of nucleation and domain wall motion by probing ferroelectric domain dynamics at atomic resolution. For this purpose in-situ heating/electrical biasing transmission electron microscopy investigations will be carried out in combination with advanced transmission electron microscopy techniques (e.g. aberration-corrected STEM, STEM-DPC, electron holography, EELS and EDX). A substantial part of this position involves the development and/or implementation of new image analysis methods.
