On September 1, 2021, Prof. Jörg Schulze took over as director of Fraunhofer IISB from Prof. Martin März, who had led the institute on an interim basis since 2018. At the same time, Prof. Schulze also holds the Chair of Electronic Devices (LEB) at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU).

Jörg Schulze grew up in Leipzig and studied physics at the TU Braunschweig from 1990 to 1996. He received his doctorate (in 2000) and habilitation (2004) from the Universität der Bundeswehr München. A research stay took him to the University of California in Los Angeles. From 2004 to 2008, Jörg Schulze worked in industry at Siemens Corporate Technology in Munich as Senior Consultant "Technical Risk Management" and Competence Field Leader "Mathematical Engineering". In 2008, Jörg Schulze was appointed full professor and director of the Institute of Semiconductor Technology at the University of Stuttgart, where he worked until his move to the IISB.

Jörg Schulze's scientific research areas are, among others, semiconductor technology of silicon-germanium-tin-based devices, the fabrication of power semiconductor devices from wide bandgap semiconductors such as silicon carbide, gallium nitride, and gallium(III) oxide, as well as color centers in silicon carbide and quantum technologies based on them.
