PhD thesis in the field of system design at the Human-Machine Interface

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft ( currently operates 76 institutes and research institutions throughout Germany and is the world’s leading applied research organization. Around 30,000 employees work with an annual research budget of 2.9 billion euros. 

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP is working on innovative solutions in the field of vacuum coating and surface treatment as well as the combination of organic electronics with classical silicon circuitry. The Fraunhofer FEP thus offers a wide range of research, development and pilot-manufacturing.

Our interdisciplinary field of “Microdisplays and Sensors” is engaged in the development and manufacturing of micro-displays and sensors based on the integration of organic light emitting diodes (OLED) onto silicon CMOS substrates. Here, our activities range from the initial idea, through design in close cooperation with the OLED technology, the circuit design of the OLED integration, testing, assembly and interconnection technology to the development of the complete system and application. Here, we are working in the interdisciplinary scope of different subjects such as electrical engineering/electronics, microelectronics, microsystems technology, information technology, computer science, physics, chemistry, optics and manufacturing.

The doctoral thesis advertised here is part of the FEP contribution to the excellence cluster “Center for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI)” at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). This offers the unique opportunity to participate in a highly interdisciplinary and scientifically excellent environment. Accordingly, in addition to the work at Fraunhofer FEP, active communication with and within the cluster is expected.

We offer you a topic for a PhD thesis at our location Maria-Reiche-Str. in Dresden-Klotzsche as soon as possible.
