Inviting applications for two doctoral student positions

Research Training Group GRK 2717 DynCAM

We are looking for a PhD student to investigate excited electronic states of transition metal ions by x-ray absorption and x-ray circular magnetic dichroism spectroscopy.

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and Max-Planck-Institut Mülheim

We are looking for a PhD student to work on fundamental aspects in energetics and structure of molecular complexes and clusters with wavefunction-based computational protocols (ORCA) and state-of-the-art XAS and XMCD spectroscopy.


Research projects for bachelor and master students

We welcome bachelor and master students to work with our doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers, see the list of current projects or contact us to discuss your research interests.
