The International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials is a joint PhD program between the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden, Germany, Technische Universität Dresden and the University of St Andrews, Scotland. By working together, we create a highly attractive overall package of PhD level research on solid-state chemistry and condensed matter physics, building on world‐class research activities in quantum materials at the three institutions.
Our program will provide successful candidates with a stimulating environment, in which they will have the opportunity to interact and work with world-leading scientists from the three sites and use our excellent infrastructure and facilities. Our research is generously funded and successful candidates will receive competitive remuneration based on the primary location of their research project.
We seek to recruit multiple PhD students (f/m/d) in 2023 to a range of inter‐institutional research projects in the broadly defined field of quantum materials. Research work will be combined with graduate courses and general skills training. Both experimental and theoretical projects are offered and a complete list of all projects is available on our website.
Excellent candidates from any country are encouraged to apply. Applicants are expected to have an outstanding Bachelor or Master degree in a field of study which is well-aligned with our research activities. We aim to maintain a good gender balance within the School and strongly encourage applications from female candidates.
Closing date for application is 30th November 2022. Accepted candidates are expected to start their projects no later than September 2023.
