Part-time, with half of the regular working hours of a full time position, employment is in the context of the BMBF Project Q.Link.X (Quantum Link Extended). This is a fixed term-position till the end of the project (§ 2 Abs. 2 WissZeitVG).



  • molecular beam epitaxy growth of high quality InP-based quantum dots for telecom wavelengths
  • Integration of QDs in diode and cavity structures
  • optical and structural characterization of the grown and fabricated structures
  • the goal is to achieve high quality single QDs emitting around 1.55 µm for quantum communication applications. This work will be in close collaboration with other project partners


  • Candidates are expected to hold a Master degree in physics, and/or  nanoscience, and/or electrical engineering
  • outstanding academic record with background in solid state physics and semiconductor-based nanostructures
  • good written and spoken English


Of advantage will be:

  • Knowledge of QD growth and processing of nanostructures
  • previous research experience in optical characterization
  • Team working style
