The newly established International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials is a joint PhD programme between the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden, Germany, TU Dresden and the University of St Andrews, Scotland. It builds on world-class research activities in quantum materials at these institutions, and will provide successful candidates with a stimulating environment and the opportunity to interact and work with leading scientists from the three sites.
We seek to recruit up to ten PhD students in 2016 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, and both experimental and theoretical projects are available.
Excellent candidates from any country are encouraged to apply to a range of projects specified on our web site (see below), where details of how to apply can also be found.
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.
We aim to maintain a good gender balance within the School and strongly encourage applications from female candidates.
Closing date for application is 15 February 2016. Accepted candidates will start their projects before September 2016.
