For the DFG priority project, SPP 1928 (COORNETs) *“Control of conformational effects in layered kagome MOF films and systematic access to their use in electronic applications” (KaMOF)*, the *Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden, Chair of Molecular Functional Materials* at *TU Dresden* offers the following position:

*Research Associate / PhD student*
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)

_Research area:_
*Synthesis of two-dimensional conjugated metal-organic framework films and functions in (opto-)electronics*

Dr. Renhao Dong

research path:
Organic/Polymer Path

50% of the fulltime weekly hours, starting *as soon as possible* for three years with the possibility of extension. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed-Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG).

*Position and Requirements*
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been highlighted for the functions in catalysis, gas storage and separation. In the past, MOFs were regarded as insulators due to the large separation of metal centers by multi-atom, insulating organic ligands, etc. Recent advances disclose that the designs of 2D conjugated MOFs (2D c-MOFs) have led to improved intrinsic conductivity. However, the related research remains immature due to lack of high-quality thin film/nanosheet samples, very limited structural types and elusive transport mechanism. To address the above challenges, the DFG priority project has approved the research topic "Control of conformational effects in layered kagome MOF films and systematic access to their use in electronic applications" (KaMOF).
Dr. Dong’s team (including 1 PI, 8 PhD students and 3 Postdocs now) is currently focused on the synthesis of organic 2D materials which emerge as outstanding candidates for a great number of electronic/magnetic/sensing/energy applications (Website of Dr. Renhao Dong: https://tu-dresden.de/mn/chemie/mc/mc2/die-professur/gruppenleiter/dr-re...). Within this DFG Project, the goal of this “KaMOF” research is to synthesize 2D c-MOF films bearing electronic functions.
The successful candidate will be responsible for: production and functionalisation of large-area, single-layer and few-layer 2D MOF films by interfacial chemistry; application research in the field of field effect transistors, Hall effect devices and photodetectors; organisational tasks within the SPP project.
We aim at attracting the best talent in the respective research fields and expect the following: an outstanding university degree in materials science, coordination chemistry, polymer chemistry or similar; previous experience in MOF synthesis and 2D materials and electronic technologies; very good interpersonal and communication skills; in particular, the ability to effectively work in collaborative research efforts; an independent, target- and solution-driven work attitude; inter- and multidisciplinary thinking; strong motivation and interest to join one of the most ambitious interdisciplinary research clusters; fluency in English - written and oral.

*What we offer*
You will join a team of enthusiastic scientists who pursue creatively their individual research agenda inspired by the research center’s innovative approach and support. Your research will be fostered by the cfaed philosophy to promote young researchers, which includes: access to state-of-the-art research of leading academic institutes; promotion of gender equality and family-friendly work environment.
Informal enquiries can be submitted to Dr. Renhao Dong, Tel +49 (351) 463 40364; Email: renhao.dong@tu-dresden.de.
Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.
*Application Procedure*
Your application *(in English only)* should include: motivation letter, CV, copy of degree certificate and proof of English language skills. Complete applications should be submitted by post quoting the reference *KaMOF-2020-03* to: *TU Dresden, cfaed, Dr. Renhao Dong, Helmholtzstr. 10, 01069 Dresden*. The closing date for applications is *30.04.2020* (stamped arrival date of the university central mail service applies). Please submit copies only, as your application will not be returned to you. Expenses incurred in attending interviews cannot be reimbursed.
