At the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Institute of Physics, Quantum Technology lab, we are filling the following position, subject to allocation of funds, at the earliest possible date on a temporary basis for the duration of the project "Interface engineering of luminescent defects in 2D materials“ within the Collaborative Research Center 1477 "Light-Matter Interactions at Interfaces" on 31.12.2025

Research Assistant (m/f/d)
EG 13 TV-L, part-time employment, 30 hours/week, limited, qualification position

Thanks to the approval of the first funding period by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), the collaborative research center 1477 has been established at the Institute of Physics. For the sub-project W07 „Interface engineering of luminescent defects in 2D materials“ we are looking for a researcher to work on various aspects of light-matter interaction.

Tasks and Responsibilities

You will be spearheading an effort to explore a class of color defect in 2D materials with the aim of scientific qualification (doctorate). This work will comprise 1) engineering of novel defects by encapsulation of fluorescent molecules into Boron Nitride multilayers. 2) study of novel defects and exploration of novel schemes for optical spin readout. 3) use of 2D defects in scanning near-field microscopy (image below). All aspects will involve strong collaboration with other members of the quantum technology group and other groups at the institute.
