You have a basic understanding of the solid state and the mentality to work independently? You will be interested to work in our team and on our journey towards CMOS-compatible Spintronics devices. Start your career! POSTS ARE IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE FOR
Master/Diploma Thesis: Spintronics - Development of CMOS-compatible Materials, Metrology and Devices

Based on recent discoveries in spintronics, spin-based implementations like e.g. Magnetic Random Access Memory (MRAM) or Racetrack Memory (RTM) are approaches to overcome fundamental scaling limits in semiconductor industry. Spin conversion is a key element in spin-based computing systems, like e.g. Spin Transfer Torque or Spin Orbit Torque. We plan to explore fundamental building blocks for such applications.

Within the scope of a Master/Diploma Thesis the following tasks should be performed:
  • Development and Processing of thin film materials for Spintronics Devices (e.g. MRAM, Racetrack)
  • Experimental work in cleanroom and lab with state-of-the-art industry tools
  • Systematic planning and realization of own experimental series
  • Summary of the results and discussion within an international team

Was Sie mitbringen


  • Studies of electrical engineering, process engineering, microelectronics, physics, chemistry, material science or similar studies in the field of engineering or science
  • Basic knowledge in solid state physics/chemistry, electrical engineering, semiconductor physics, surface sciences, magnetism phenomena or related
  • High motivation to work independently on the experimental realization of your experiments in cleanroom and lab
  • Result-oriented spirit of work with the attitude of creative problem solving
  • Very good set of communication skills

Was Sie erwarten können


You will find a large network of experts working in an open and collegial environment within the excellent Fraunhofer research and development infrastructure. We offer an exciting, up-to-date position in which you can benefit from our experienced team. Our excellent industry-related research and development infrastructure provides you access to a large network of experts. You will become part of an inspirational international work environment based on trust, creativity and team spirit.
The position is limited. The duration is flexible according to agreement and possible study guidelines. The scientific work is planned to be carried out in the business area Center Nanoelectronic Technologies CNT at Fraunhofer IPMS in Dresden. The examination takes place via the connection to a German technical university and is based on the respective state university law.
