The International Max Planck Research School for Reactive Structure Analysis for Chemical Reactions (IMPRS-RECHARGE) invites applications for several PhD / Doctoral Positions in Chemistry and Engineering Science.

The Research School

Our research school is jointly organized by two Max Planck Institutes in Mülheim/Ruhr as well as the Universities of Bochum, Bonn and Duisburg-Essen, all located in Germany. The overall aim of the research school is to gain a detailed atomistic understanding of catalytic reaction mechanisms in solution or at (electrode) surfaces. Our 3-year-doctoral-program offers the opportunity to pursue research projects in a number of fields, e.g. homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, inorganic chemistry, nanoparticle synthesis and theoretical chemistry.

We invite applications for several

PhD / Doctoral Positions in Chemistry

to pursue projects in chemistry and physics with an emphasis on one of the following areas:

• Theoretical Chemistry • Inorganic Chemistry • Heterogeneous Catalysis • Molecular Catalysis

Highly motivated early career researchers of any nationality are invited to apply. Applicants should have an excellent scientific background, a strong interest in performing interdisciplinary projects and a deep commitment to fundamental research. Applicants should hold an MSc or equivalent degree in chemistry, physics or a related area at the point of enrolment.

All students accepted to this 3-year-PhD/doctoral-program will receive a salary and will join one of our research groups. Each student receives supervision and mentoring and is guided in her/his research work by an advisory committee. The student’s laboratory work is supplemented by high-grade scientific courses. The working language is English.

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Applications for this PhD/doctoral program can only be submitted via the online system on our homepage. Applications must include a cover letter explaining the candidate’s motivation, a CV, the Master’s degree certificate (if received) and transcripts, and the names and addresses of two referees familiar with the work of the applicant.

We look forward to receiving your application.
