Description The International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials is a joint PhD program between the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden, Germany, Technische Universität Dresden and the University of St Andrews, Scotland. By working together, we create a highly attractive overall package of PhD level research on solid-state chemistry and condensed matter physics. It builds on world‐class research activities in quantum materials at the three institutions, and will provide successful candidates with a stimulating environment and the opportunity to interact and work with leading scientists from the three sites.

Our research is generously funded and successful candidates will have the opportunity to work with world‐leading people, infrastructure and facilities. Our students will also be financially supported to cover tuition and living expenses.

We seek to recruit up to ten PhD students in 2021 to a range of inter‐institutional research projects in the broadly defined field of quantum materials. Research work will be combined with graduate courses and general skills training. Both experimental and theoretical projects are offered and a complete list of all projects is available on our website:

We are currently accepting applications for positions in IMPRS-CPQM. Successful candidates are expected to start their projects no later than September 2021.

We are looking for highly motivated PhD students who have a record of excellence in their previous studies. Most of our incoming students will have Masters or MPhys degrees as part of their entry qualification, but we will also consider applications from candidates with excellent Bachelor degrees.

We welcome applications from excellent candidates from any country. We aim to maintain a good gender balance within the School and particularly encourage female candidates to apply.
