PhD positions on theoretical projects at the International Max Planck Research SurMat - Interface Controlled Materials for Energy Conversion
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 on energy conversion. The laboratories within the IMPRS-SurMat provide the most modern surface and interface analytical techniques and surface technologies. For theoretical studies high performance computational facilities and cutting edge computational tools are available.
Students interested to work on theoretical projects and 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.
