PhD positions are currently available on computational and experimental projects.
Our structured, three-year doctoral programme, conducted entirely in English, takes an intensive interdisciplinary approach and brings together scientists from across the globe in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region of Germany. Partner institutes of the IMPRS-SurMat are the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Duesseldorf, the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Muelheim, the Max-Planck-Institut für Chemische Energiekonversion in Muelheim, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, and the Universität Duisburg-Essen.
The research focuses on materials-related questions motivated by energy conversion, including, e. g., photovoltaics, electrochemistry, structural materials.
High performance computational facilities are available, as well as cutting edge surface and interface analytical techniques within the laboratories associated to the IMPRS-SurMat and excellent opportunities for collaborations.
Students holding an excellent master’s degree in chemistry, physics, materials science, mechanical engineering or related subjects are invited to apply.
The school offers funding, the application of students with own funding is also welcome.
