The International Max Planck Research School for Ultrafast Imaging and Structural Dynamics in Hamburg, Germany, offers a structured Ph.D. programme in the physics and chemistry of ultrafast phenomena.
Interdisciplinary Ph.D. positions in Ultrafast Science – IMPRS-UFAST – Hamburg
Exciting research of ultra-intense electron and x-ray sources for directly observing atomic motions during primary events, and ultrafast imaging over the relevant length and time scales to reach new levels of understanding of the interplay between structure and dynamics. Specific areas include theoretical and experimental aspects of condensed matter and atomically resolved dynamics, fundamental light-matter interaction, accelerator-based light sources, coherent imaging, coherent controlled molecular and solid state dynamics, molecule imaging, extreme timescale spectroscopy, ultrafast optics and x-ray science, relevance and applications in chemistry, biology and medicine.
cross-disciplinary thesis research in a vibrant, international scientific environment
supervision and mentorship by a team of internationally renowned experts and additional support through an advisory panel
state-of-the-art research facilities
advanced training opportunities (scientific, skills, career) in English
work contract based on the federal wage agreement
We are looking for highly motivated applicants with an excellent academic background. Applicants will hold (or are about to complete) an MSc degree or an equivalent degree in physics, chemistry or related areas.
The Max Planck Society strives for gender and diversity equality. We welcome applications from all backgrounds. Furthermore, 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.
