Combines passion with know-how - your profile:
- You have successfully completed your engineering or science degree, and ideally have obtained a PhD.
- You have gained extensive knowledge and experience in the physics, fabrication and characterization of silicon solar cells, ideally with poly-silicon based passivating contacts.
- You ideally have gained special knowledge in the areas of statistical data analysis and DoE (planning, implementation and evaluation of experiments).
- You ideally have worked in the PV or semiconductor industry.
- You are goal-oriented and have a systematic and analytical working style. Team work and organizational skills are equally among your strengths.
- You are confident in dealing with MS Office and ideally have in-depth knowledge of statistical software.
- Very good spoken and written English skills round off your profile and enable you to work successfully in a global company. You are willing to embark on business trips worldwide. Fluent German is a plus.
And this is how we back you up:
- Arrival made easy: With the help of a welcome training and an orientation plan, we introduce you to your new tasks in a structured manner. A personal mentor will be at your side with help and advice.

- Your commitment pays off: We reward your commitment with fair remuneration based on international standards, consisting of a fixed and a flexible component - based on the achievement of objectives. On top of this, you can count on capital-forming benefits, a company pension scheme and accident insurance.
- Work-Life-Balance: The compatibility of family and career is a major concern for us. In our \"Glückspilz\" daycare center, your little ones are well cared for. And so that there is enough time for the family away from work, you have 30 days of vacation per year at your disposal.
- Good for body and soul: A subsidized canteen with healthy, freshly cooked menus and a wide range of health offers from our Q.CARE program, e.g. flu vaccinations, massages or preventive medical checkups, ensure that you stay fit - because the well-being of our employees is close to our heart.
- Mobile on all routes: We offer you flexible working hours and the possibility of mobile working. Our shuttle service from Bitterfeld station to the Solar Valley makes your way to work as comfortable as possible. But also as a car driver you will always find a free parking space in our car park. Well-equipped, barrier-free offices and meeting rooms complete the overall picture.
We don't just dream of a better future.
We make it a reality together.
