For our Joint Lab Quantum Photonic Components, which is engaged in the development of compact and robust, narrow-linewidth micro-integrated diode laser systems for precision metrology applications i.a. in space, we are seeking for a scientific staff member.

(Reference number 07/20)


Your tasks cover the development of highly complex diode laser modules as well as the characterization of the electro-optical performance of laser chips and laser modules with respect to the parameters relevant for the respective application. This includes the development of laser concepts as well as the thermal, mechanical, electrical, and/or optical design of the laser modules.

You should hold a diploma or the equivalent master's degree from a university in physics, photonics or electrical engineering with a focus on opto-electronics or a comparable degree. Relevant knowledge and experience in the development and/or use of lasers for scientific or communications applications are required, as well as basic knowledge in laser-theory and -technology, and in optics. Enthusiasm for details and the willingness to maintain an extremely careful working attitude are required. Experience in the design of opto-mechanical assemblies, in the development of analog and digital electronic circuits and in control engineering is also desirable. The ability to work in a team and a committed, independent way of working as well as very good knowledge of the German and English language, both written and spoken, round off your profile. This position provides the possibility to complete a doctorate.

We offer a demanding and interdisciplinary working environment. Payment of the full position is according to TVöD (collective salary scheme for German public service).  The position can be filled immediately and is initially limited to two years.
