PhD Positions

International Max Planck Research School for Ultrafast Imaging and Structural Dynamics, Hamburg offers PhD positions in Ultrafast Science
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 come to new levels of understanding of the interplay between structure and
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, which have relevance and applications in chemistry, biology and medicine.
We offer:
• a 3-year structured PhD programme
• cross-disciplinary thesis research in a vibrant, international
scientific environment
• supervision and mentorship by internationally renowned experts
• state-of-the-art research facilities
• advanced training opportunities (scientific, skills, career) in English
• funding in form of contracts

We are looking for 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.
