Structured doctoral programs at Faculty of Natural Sciences II

24. Jul 2023

International Max Planck Research School for Science and Technology of Nano-Systems (IMPRS-STNS)

Written by

spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Stuart Parkin, coordinator: Dr. Ann-Kristin Flieger, Michael Strauch (funding 2017-2028)

About the doctoral program

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) exploits the successful research network between the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics and the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems, Halle, to carry out research into novel atomically engineered materials for nano-systems which tackles grand societal challenges in the fields of information technology and sustainability. [read more]

Research Training Group | Beyond Amphiphilicity: Self-Organization of Soft Matter Via Multiple Noncovalent Interactions (GRK 2670)

Written by

Spokesman: Prof. Dr. Dariush Hinderberger, coordinator: Dr. Imme Sakwa-Waltz 
funding period 2021-2025 by DFG; website

About the doctoral program

Amphiphilicity is a well-established qualitative concept contributing to the understanding of self-assembly processes of molecules composed of two inherently incompatible units (hydrophilic and hydrophobic) in aqueous systems. Polyphilic molecules are more complex molecules, from small molecules to macromolecules, that have interaction patterns with at least two types of interactions, one of them based on amphiphilicity. Self-assembled soft matter systems attain their complexity through noncovalent interaction patterns of their molecular constituents with their environment, solvents, biomolecules, membranes, and surfaces.

European Training Network “Joint Training on Numerical Modelling of Highly Flexible Structures for Industrial Applications”

Written by

spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Martin Arnold, coordinator: Sarah Keil
(funding 2019-2023)

Highly flexible slender structures like yarns, cables, hoses or ropes are essential parts of high-performance engineering systems. The complex response of such structures in real operational conditions is far beyond the capabilities of current modelling tools that are at the core of modern product development cycles. The THREAD project will bring together young mechanical engineers and mathematicians who will develop mechanical models and numerical methods for designing highly flexible slender structures, and support the development of future virtual prototyping tools for products where such structures have a key role in functional system performance.

The European Training Network is funded by HORIZON 2020 – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). MSCA provide grants for all stages of researchers’ careers – be they doctoral candidates or highly experienced researchers – and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA enable research-focused organisations (universities, research centres, and companies) to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide.  website

integrated Research Training Group “Ultrafast Spin Dynamics”

Written by

Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Wolf Widdra, coordinator: Dr. Britta Anstötz
funding period 2018-2025 by DFG

The iRTG offers a structured qualification program in scientific and key skills to all PhD students financed and associated to the CRC/TRR. Research focuses on Ultrafast Dynamics of Magnetic Order and Ultrafast Spin Currents. Its training is divided into research training in several laboratories and in different research contexts, as well as an external training program, which offers courses for key skills. The PhD students have many occasions to actively learn about the works of their colleagues in the CRC, to communicate science and to discuss their own scientific results. The scientific exchange is fostered by a set of opportunities, such as training in other than their own labs, tutorials, seminars and a retreat. [read more]

The graduate school is part of the collaborative research center “Ultrafast Spin Dynamics” (SFB/TRR 227) (Spokespersons: Prof. Dr. Martin Weinelt (FU Berlin), Prof. Dr. Georg Woltersdorf (MLU)), website
