Jobs and Student Assistance Positions

Open positions at the IMPT

The Institute for Microproduction Technology not only offers jobs for young scientists, but also trainee positions and jobs for technical and administrative staff.

Student Assistant Positions (HiWi)

The institute offers  jobs as HiWi in different areas.  Announcements for HiWi jobs are listed below:

  • Student assistant wanted for the group Vacuum Technology

    For exciting and innovative projects in the field of microsystems technology we are looking for motivated student support. The range of tasks includes all aspects of development, fabrication and characterization of microsystems and their associated periphery. In the field of microsystems possible fields of activity are the design and simulative optimization (2D and 3D CAD) as well as the manufacturing in clean room and laboratory. In addition, the spectrum includes the validation of these microsystems. In connection with the periphery there are possible fields of activity in the electronics development, data processing and evaluation. Furthermore you are actively involved in the design, construction and integration of test experimental setups.


    • Degree programme: mechanical engineering, nanotechnology, electrical engineering, mechatronics, (technical) computer science, physics


    Please send me your informative application documents by e-mail to Leonard Diekmann.

A diploma/diploma (FH) or a master's degree is required for employment as a reserach associate. Within the scope of the work at the Institute for Microproduction Technology, a doctorate as Dr.-Ing. should be sought after.

Trainee Program: Industrial Mechanic

The Institute of Micro Production Technology offers  a three and a half year training as industrial mechanic annually (if available). The training starts on the first of August of each year and is based on the dual education system. In addition to school lessons, practical knowledge of manual and machine production in the workshop is imparted. If you have any questions, please contact our workshop manager Michael Weber.

  • Training

    In the base training time, manual activities such as filing, punching, bending, scribing, riveting and thread cutting are learned. In the area of "Manufacturing on conventional machine tools" the emphasis is on turning, milling, drilling and grinding. Building on this, training is given on controlled machine tools. During the training period, various practice parts are produced.

  • Practice Parts
    Bohrvorrichtung (Practice Part)
    Functional Model Sterling Motor
    Kettennietausdrücker (Practice Part)
    Kombinierte Bohrplatte (Practice Part)
    Bohrplatte (Practice Part)
  • Workshop Equipment

    In the workshop of the institute the following machines are available:


    • CNC 3-axis milling machine
    • CNC 5-axis milling machine
    • Drilling machines
    • Lathes, conventional
    • grinding machines


    Sheet metal forming:

    • Hand lever shears
    • Sheet metal guillotine shears


    Thermal processing:

    • Gas welding and brazing equipment
    • Plastic welding machine
  • Application

    We expect applicants to have good grades in mathematics, physics and chemistry. In addition, teamwork, manual skills, and an understanding of order and cleanliness. Please send written applications to Mr. Weber:
