3. Fully Funded PhD Position in Spectromicroscopy studies of complex processes in thermal catalysis

Summary of PhD Program:

The group operates an ultra-high vacuum (UHV) based aberrations corrected and energy filtered Low Energy and Photoemission Electron Microscopy (LEEM/PEEM) at the UE49PGM-SMART high flux soft x-ray beamline at BESSY-II. This spectromicroscope is used to characterize catalytically active surfaces such as single crystal surfaces, oxide films and supported nanoparticles (NP) and to follow in real time and in situ processes such as epitaxial film growth, thermal reactions in a pressure range up to 10-5 mbar and phase transitions. Various special equipment are connected to the microscope allowing for quasi in situ processes like UHV based plasma treatment, chemical reactions in near ambient pressure (NAP) and electrochemistry.

9. Fully Funded PhD Position

Summary of PhD Program:

Single molecule X-ray scattering experiments with free electron lasers offer a new route to the structure determination of biomolecules. In addition, they hold the potential to not only determine the molecular structure, but also its dynamics. However, computing the structure from such data poses a highly complex mathematical problem, and new theoretical methods and algorithms are required. The main goal of this particular research project is to develop Bayesian methods to determine molecular structures and dynamics. It also offers the opportunity to work with data from the European XFEL facility at DESY and, depending on the interests of the applicant, many possible connections to other research areas like, for example, molecular dynamics or machine learning.

13. Fully Funded PhD Position in Experimental Quantum Matter Pillars

Summary of PhD Program:

For application in screens and photovoltaics, we require materials that are both conductive as well as transparent. Based on our intuition we think that metals are shiny objects that reflect the optical spectrum of light. When applying finite size confinement to layered quantum materials we can access slabs of materials that combine high electrical conductivity and optical transmission. The high degree of localization of electrons into the conductive planes prevents excitation of the electrons in the perpendicular direction and hence allows for good optical transparency.

14. Fully Funded PhD Position in Population Health

Summary of PhD Program:

Successful disease prevention has been a cornerstone of health and mortality improvements in recent decades. However, effective disease prevention has far-reaching demographic consequences. Improved survival with diseases results in an increasing number of life years with diseases, and as a consequence, a population that will consist of higher shares of individuals with chronic conditions, or a history of diseases. At the same time, longer lifespans may cause individual disease histories to become more complex, and increase the number of multimorbid individuals. Counteracting dynamics such as a delayed disease onset or a complete prevention of a disease could slow or even reverse these processes.

15. Fully Funded PhD Position in Theoretical Solid States Physics

Summary of PhD Program:

The Minerva Fast Track Group “Spin-Orbital Electronics”, established in October 2021 at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle (Saale), Germany, uses methods of theoretical physics to discuss transport phenomena in solids, which originate from spin-orbit coupling. Examples for such effects are the spin Hall effect, which is the generation of a transversal spin current in nonmagnetic materials, or the Edelstein effect, which corresponds to a current-induced homogeneous spin polarization in systems with broken inversion symmetry. Our theoretical calculations base on the Boltzmann transport theory, Kubo linear response theory, and nonlinear transport theories based on the polarization operator.

17. Fully Funded PhD Position in Sustainable Metallurgy for students from developing countries

Summary of PhD Program:

Metallurgy has provided humankind since more than five millennia with materials, tools and the associated progress. It is not only a huge engineering success story, but has also become the biggest single industrial environmental burden of our generation. Disruptive innovations are required for alternative reduction processes that convert mineral ores into metals without today’s carbon based methods that release huge amounts of CO2. SusMet focuses on the exploration of carbon-free sustainable metallurgy, employing hydrogen as reducing agent, direct electroreduction (electrolysis) and plasma synthesis.
