The newly established Lab Dresden Centre for Intelligent Materials (DCIM) offers in the field of Materials Informatics – data-driven approaches for materials research a position as Research Associate / Group Leader (Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 14 TV-L) startingat the next possible date and limited until 31.12.2022.

The Lab Dresden Center for Intelligent Materials (DCIM) is focused on novel materials which, as a central component of intelligent systems, feel, think and act autonomously through integrated sensory and actuator functionalities. It initially consists of the two research groups Hierarchical Topologies – structures with material-inherent control functions and Materials Informatics – data-driven approaches for materials research and is intended to establish complementary competencies and to develop promising future research areas.


You will be integrated into the activities of the Materials Informatics research group and will interact with scientists in the field of computational materials research involved in the Dresden Centre for Computational Materials Science (DCMS). The tasks include – in the field of development and application of data-driven approaches for the description and integration of novel tailor-made materials – besides own research activities, the monitoring of the scientific development of the group, an active role in the collaboration with internal and external partners in research and industry and the acquisition of external funding. The position offers perfect perspectives for personal development within the framework of a university career from postdoc to group leader. The willingness to prepare an application for an individual junior research group (e.g. Emmy Noether Group, ERC Starting Grant) is expected and supported.
