PhD stu­dents

Work­ing field:

The Depart­ment of Solid State Chem­istry headed by Dr. Prof. Claudia Felser, seeks reg­u­larly to appoint highly motiv­ated young sci­ent­ists to carry out PhD pro­jects on atom­ic­ally engin­eered mater­i­als, in the research areas of spin­tron­ics and skyrmi­on­ics sys­tems.
Pro­jects com­prise thin film depos­ition, using mag­net­ron sput­ter­ing; struc­tural, mag­netic, trans­port and optical char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of tet­ra­gonal Heusler com­pounds host­ing skyrmi­ons.
The young sci­ent­ists will have the oppor­tun­ity to earn a doc­tor­ate under excel­lent research con­di­tions in the Inter­na­tional Max Planck Research School for Chem­istry and Phys­ics of Quantum Mater­i­als (IMPRS-CPQM). Super­vising tutors at both Max Planck Insti­tute for Chem­ical Phys­ics of Solids (MPI CPFS) and Tech­nical Uni­versity of Dresden (TUD) look after the stu­dents and instruct them.


Require­ments for PhD stu­dents
  • we are look­ing for enthu­si­astic and tal­en­ted stu­dents with a Mas­ter’s degree in phys­ics, mater­i­als sci­ence, chem­istry, or related fields
  • can­did­ates should have a strong drive to excel in an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary and inter­na­tional envir­on­ment
  • can­did­ates are expec­ted to be highly cre­at­ive and innov­at­ive and must be out­stand­ing team play­ers who can work in a fast-paced and highly dynamic envir­on­ment
  • Eng­lish is work­ing lan­guage at the Insti­tute

What we of­fer:

Terms of employ­ment
  • pos­i­tions are on fixed-term con­tract for three years
  • pos­i­tions are avail­able imme­di­ately
  • we wel­come applic­a­tions from dis­abled per­sons with equal qual­i­fic­a­tions
  • fur­ther­more, the Max Planck Soci­ety aims to employ more women in this area and there­fore par­tic­u­larly encour­ages applic­a­tions from women

How to ap­ply:

Your applic­a­tion
  • should include a com­plete CV, cer­ti­fic­ates and tran­scripts, a state­ment of past research accom­plish­ments (MSc thesis, research pro­jects) and the con­tact details of two aca­demic ref­er­ees
  • can be sent to
