Bachelor and Master course students: you’re invited to join us!
We invite skilled bachelor and master course students with a physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, or advanced technology background to perform experimental, computational or theoretical research with us. Depending on your background and interest we have various research projects available: e.g. – the full reconstruction of the layered film profile with atomic resolution by using X-ray reflectometry, or – the development of a new technique called Grazing Incidence Small Angle X-ray Scattering, or - the usage of optics to assess EUV light sources at our industrial partner labs. Our group provides a dynamic work place, open communication, and aims for highest quality research. We facilitate all professional and personal development.

Interested candidates are invited to contact Prof.dr. Fred Bijkerk (, Prof.dr. Marcelo Ackermann ( or you can contact the respective representative of the assignment.
