The INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken, Germany, is an internationally leading center for materials research, a scientific partner to national and international research institutions, and a provider of research and development for companies throughout the world. The INM is an institute of the Leibniz Association and has about 250 employees.
Touch and feel are central to our perception of the world and to our well-being. The “Interactive Surfaces” group at INM, led by Roland Bennewitz, develops surfaces with defined microstructure and interface energy to create materials with strong haptic appeal and potential for effective tactile signaling. Our psychophysical projects connect material development, skin friction, and perception.
We open two positions:
– Tactile perception of materials – structure and chemistry of surface and skin
PhD student (m/f/d)
tactile perception of microstructured materials with switchable topography
The postdoctoral fellow will collaborate with the Center of Experimental and Applied Cutaneous Physiology (CCP) at the Charité Hospital in Berlin (Prof. Meinke), the PhD student with the Systems Neurophysiology Lab at the Hertie-Institute for Clinical Brain Research in Tübingen (Prof. Schwarz). Extended visits (total ~1 year) at the partners’ laboratories are important part of the projects and will be adequately supported.
- Broad background in materials science, physics, or related fields
- Strong interest in interdisciplinary research and collaboration
Candidates should be self-motivated, have good interpersonal, communication and writing skills, and a demonstrated ability to interact effectively with staff at all levels. The ability to work as a member of an international, multi-disciplinary team is a critical asset, and proficiency in English is mandatory.
