Fully Funded PhD Positions (Doctoral Researcher [f/m/d]) at Max Planck Graduate Center for Quantum Materials
Are you interested in working in the rapidly evolving research field of quantum materials?
The Max Planck Graduate Center for Quantum Materials (MPGC-QM) currently has an open call for multiple fully funded PhD student positions. Deadline for submission of your application is December 21th, 2023!
Seven Max Planck Institutes (Berlin, Dresden, Erlangen, Hamburg, Halle, and Stuttgart) – all of them world-leading institutions in their respective fields – bring together their expertise in the research on quantum materials and thus offer a truly unique graduate program in this intriguing research area.
In addition, we offer a limited number of joint PhD projects with Oxford University. Students working on these projects will share their time between Oxford and one of the participating Max Planck Institutes and will obtain their PhD degree from Oxford University.
Join our network
Becoming part of our interdisciplinary quantum materials community and our unique program will allow you to establish an international network that will last beyond your PhD. Connecting different research groups at six locations, MPGC-QM also connects diverse research topics with focus on quantum materials and fosters interdisciplinary collaborations.
More than 30 distinguished and internationally recognized group leaders actively participate in the PhD program and offer challenging and cutting-edge PhD projects.
Applicants should hold an M.Sc. (or equivalent degree) with a strong background in physics, chemistry, mathematics, or computer science and have some knowledge of solid-state science, excellent English language skills, and a drive to pursue their PhD in an international and multidisciplinary setting.
Outstanding candidates with a first-class four-year B.Sc. degree (or equivalent degree) are eligible to apply for the fast-track option.
Are you interested? We invite highly motivated students with strong commitment to basic science from all over the world to apply to our international program centered on quantum materials.
