We are looking for excellent students from all over the world to join our program. And we invite YOU to submit your application for admission to the Max Planck Graduate Center for Quantum Materials. If you would like to join us, please submit your application no later than 31 October 2020.
Next recruitment window is closed!
The research projects pursued by our students are at the very center of their training. At all institutions, the students have direct access to state-of-the art facilities and can collaborate with world-leading experts in the field of quantum materials.
The term “quantum materials” refers to a rapidly evolving research frontier that aims to understand, control, and ultimately design materials in which quantum physics enables novel functionalities. Recent developments include the discovery of novel phenomena resulting from the topology of the electron wavefunction in solids, the dynamical control of many-electron states (such as superconductivity) by coherent light fields, and the synthesis of heterostructures and devices comprising atomically sharp interfaces of quantum materials exhibiting diverse electronic ground states.
In order to maintain the leading role of the Max Planck Society in the field of quantum materials, we are looking for students in relevant research fields such as physics, chemistry and material sciences. Applicants should have an excellent Bachelor or Master degree in one of these fields. Students in our Graduate Center will pursue research projects that push the frontiers of the field of quantum materials and will benefit from close collaboration with world-leading experts at all participating institutions.
Applications for the autumn term 2020 are now closed. Next application call will start on 01 September 2020. You can find more information about the application procedure here.
