To support our R&D team collaboration project with Zyvex Labs, Richardson, Texas, USA in developing tools for the 'Atomically Precise Manufacturing', we are opening an internship position for 6 months

The project, called 'Atomically Precise Manufacturing', aims to develop new tools for the fabrication of devices in which control of an individual atom’s location at the single-lattice-site level yields unprecedented capabilities. Scanning probe techniques allow the creation of transformational devices such as Quantum Computers, Analog Quantum Simulators, and Atomic Electronics.

In the project's current phase, new scanning probes have to be developed using MEMS and CMOS technologies under the supervision of our experienced development team and in close collaboration with our partners at Zyvex Labs, Richardson, Texas, USA.

We are looking for a student with a background in physics, chemistry, engineering, nanoscience, or equivalent who wants to do an industry R&D project as part of his or her master’s education or as an intern. Candidates should have shown an affinity for experimental work, including hardware assembly and characterization. Basic knowledge of atomic force microscopy (AFM) or cantilever-based measurement instruments is of special importance. Good communication skills in English and preferably also in German are essential to function well inside the team and with our academic partners in the USA. Shortly, you are talented in the lab and know how to perform systematic and high-quality

We offer you our full support and guidance in developing new nanotechnologies and highly leveled scientific topics.
