Open Positions

The GRK2516 opens a call for filling 10 PhD positions

The mission of our interdisciplinary research training group aims to advance our understanding of structure formation and self-organization in soft materials at and through interfaces, focusing on the interplay of experiments and computational modeling. Our topics in experimental and theoretical soft matter science range from dissipative and non-equilibrium assemblies, to molecular engineering, supramolecular functional materials, polymer brushes, self-organization in confined geometries, methodology driven X-ray scattering and computational modelling.

We invite PhD candidates interested in and with a background in polymer science,  supramolecular chemistry, physics at interfaces, multi-scale modeling and soft matter theory to apply.

Applicants must

  • hold a master’s degree, or approach its completion, in physics or chemistry (or a closely related discipline)
  • have outstanding grades
  • have excellent written and spoken English skills


Please submit your application by 30th June (incl. letter of motivation, CV, academic credentials) via this link, indicating research area and whether you seek a theoretical or experimental PhD.
