Applications are welcome for 12 PhD positions with 50 % (19,92 hours/week) E 13 TV-L for 3 years in the Graduate School “Confinement- controlled Chemistry”, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
The graduate school “Confinement-controlled Chemistry“ is looking for top-class graduate students with an interest in exploring the influence of geometrical confinement on reactions. The candidates must have a superior Master ́s degree (or equivalent) in chemistry, physics, mathematics, biochemistry, or a related engineering field and a profound interest and preferably a strong background in fundamental research. Our graduate school offers a three year program, starting July 1 st 2018, that combines cutting-edge research with a structured curriculum (in English) of lectures, colloquia and workshops in the fields of theory, spectroscopy, synthesis, and surface science. The program also comprises the opportunity for an integrated three-month research stay at the University of California at Berkeley.
Twelve PhD positions are available in the fields of supra-molecular chemistry, laser spectroscopy, synchroton X-ray spectroscopy, advanced vibrational spectroscopy, single molecule imaging, and free energy simulations. For further details refer to our website http://confinement-controlled-chemistry.de/
Applications should include degree transcripts and certificates, proof of language skills in English, a detailed curriculum vita with information on awards, presentations, and publications, and a short motivation letter (max. 500 words) that includes the specific project of interest within the graduate school.
All documents should be sent as a single PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of the leading research universities. The university draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.
At Ruhr-Universität Bochum, we wish to promote careers of women in areas in which they have been underrepresented, and we would therefore like to encourage female candidates to send us their applications. Applications by suitable candidates with severe disabilities and other applicants with equal legal status are likewise most welcome.
