Grenzflächenanalytik - Max-Planck-Institut für Festkörperforschung

Open positions

Research in the interface analysis group is directed towards the atomic structure of surfaces and thin films of technologically interesting semiconductor materials, oxide multilayer films and ultra-thin epitaxial metal systems. The goal of these research activities is a fundamental understanding of growth, interface formation and crystal formation at the atomic scale. A major research project at present is epitaxial graphene on SiC
We have open position for

Possible research projects are :

You should bring:
a comprehensive solid state physics knowledge,
studied surface and/or interface physics (for a master project),
practical experience in surface science and ultra-high vacuum (postdoctoral candidates).
Master students must be enroled in a physics program.
