Research Assist­ant - 0.75 work­ing time - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len - 1st qual­i­fic­a­tion period (PhD can­did­ate)

We are looking for a motivated PhD-candidate with own ideas and ambition, who is eager to join and to contribute to the shaping of a young working group. The successful candidate should enjoy experimental work, be motivated to conduct high quality research and publish in high impact journals, and should take delight in the improvement and optimization of existing experimental setups.

Working field:

  • research and teaching in the field of experimental solid state physics and laser spectroscopy, in particular the optical, thermal, electronic and lattice dynamical properties of semiconductors and their heterostructures and nanostructures. The available experimental techniques include micro-Raman, TERS, micro-PL, PLE, TDTR, time-resolved and time-correlated spectroscopy, supplemented by data analysis and modeling
  • teaching and supervision of the course "Introduction to physics for engineers" and laboratory courses in solid state physics


  • suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in phys­ics or a com­par­able sub­ject; very good rat­ings desired
  • very good know­ledge in one or more of the fol­low­ing areas: solid state phys­ics, laser phys­ics, optics, Raman spectroscopy
  • very good Ger­man and Eng­lish lan­guage skills (the courses are usually taught in German)
  • a high degree of determ­in­a­tion, com­mit­ment and the abil­ity to work inde­pend­ently in aca­demic research
  • exper­i­mental skill in hand­ling com­plex labor­at­ory setups
  • team-minded and socially com­mit­ted atti­tude
Desir­able are:
  • pro­gram­ming skills (Lab­view/Python); exper­i­ence in writ­ing sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions; interest in the con­trol/auto­ma­tion of elec­trical devices (Ardu­ino etc.); exper­i­ence in teach­ing (e.g. tutor­ing)

How to apply:

Please send your applic­a­tion with the ref­er­ence num­ber and the appro­pri­ate doc­u­ments (uni­versity degrees, cer­ti­fic­ates, pub­lic­a­tions etc., all com­bined in a single pdf file, max 5 MB) exclus­ively by email to Prof. Dr. Markus Wag­ner via

By sub­mit­ting your applic­a­tion via email you con­sent to hav­ing your data elec­tron­ic­ally pro­cessed and saved.
