Chemistry, Physics: Materials, Physics: Solid State
At the International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials (IMPRS-CPQM), we seek to recruit up to ten PhD students in 2018 to a range of inter-institutional research projects in condensed matter physics and solid-state chemistry. Both experimental and theoretical projects are offered in the broadly defined field of quantum materials, and a complete list of all projects is available on our website.
Research work will be combined with graduate courses and general skills training. Our firm goal in IMPRS-CPQM is to offer each student an individually tailored program of graduate courses, optimizing each program for the student’s background, expertise and research projects.
Our research is generously funded and successful candidates will have the opportunity to work with world-leading people, infrastructure and facilities. They will also be financially supported to cover tuition and living expenses.
Excellent candidates from any country are encouraged to apply. We aim to maintain a good gender balance within the School and strongly encourage applications from female candidates. While most positions will be filled with students holding a Masters degree (or equivalent), applications from candidates with excellent Bachelor degrees will also be considered.
Closing date for application is 31 December 2017. Accepted candidates are expected to start their projects no later than September 2018.

About International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials
The International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials (IMPRS-CPQM) is a joint PhD program between the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in 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 chemist...ry and condensed matter physics. It builds on world-class research activities in quantum materials at the three institutions, and provides students in the program with a stimulating environment and the opportunity to interact and work with leading scientists from the three sites.
