Paid PhD position in optoelectronic semiconductors at University of Bayreuth, Germany

University of Bayreuth, Germany is calling for applications to fill a paid fully Funded PhD position in optoelectronic semiconductors with the topic "Light controls light; development of optical logic gates".


Project Description:

Typically, electronic devices based on integrated circuits run on electrons as signal carriers and correspond to an interconnected network of logic gates that generate a binary output "1" or "0" according to a combination of input stimuli. In this project, our aim is the development of devices for signal transduction that run on photons rather than on electrons for exploiting the parallelism that is inherently possible with optical signals. In order to do so we want to combine the expertise from various fields including photochromic molecules, semiconductor quantum dots and nanofabrication techniques.


Academic and personal qualifications:

We are looking for a highly talented, passionate graduate student with interest or background in laser spectroscopy to perform optical experiments on nanostructured arrays as part of the program optical logic gates. We expect:

  • the ability to work self-motivated, team-oriented yet independent in an interdisciplinary and international research setting

  • the willingness to spend 6-12 months at the partner university in Melbourne or Monash

  • very good written and oral communication skills, with good command of English and a willingness to acquire a basic level of German

  • previous research experience in a topic related to OPTEXC, e.g. in form of a Master’s research thesis


Application procedure:

To submit your application, you have to apply online via the Application portal of the University of Bayreuth

by May 31, 2024 indicating the password “PhD optoelectronic semiconductors” Your application should contain a motivation letter, your CV, copy of your master’s degree and final high school certificate or equivalent and names of two referees.
