At TU Dresden the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) offers two fixed-term positions as
Research Associate / PhD Student
subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
Research area :
Organic devices for nonvolatile memory and neuromorphic computing applications
cfaed Investigators :
Prof. Stefan Mannsfeld
65% of the fulltime weekly hours, the position is a 3 years appointment (with the option to be extended) and starts as soon as possible .
The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz WissZeitVG).
The position offers the chance to obtain further academic qualification (e.g. PhD).
Position and Requirements
Due to the way conventional CMOS-based architectures operate, they are ultimately limited by the Neumann bottleneck which makes them slow and energy-inefficient at certain tasks (vectorizable, highly parallel information processing).
On the other hand, the human brain is an example for an architecture capable of massively parallel processing of information through each synaptic event only consumes about 1 100 fJ.
Recent developments have shown that organic devices can be very competitive in this new field. We have also recently developed a novel memory devices that can be read out and written to both electrically and by light.
With this research projects we want to : i) explore novel device architectures that enable neuromorphic circuit architectures, but also ii) develop nonvolatile, multi-bit organic memory devices that can be read and written both electrically and optically.
The successful candidates will :
