Doctoral and Postdoctoral Researchers (f/m/d) within the Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter Made to Order (3DMM2O)
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology / Heidelberg University
Within the Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter Made to Order (3DMM2O), which is supported by the DFG (German Research Foundation) as part of the Excellence Strategy, there are
5 open positions for Doctoral Researchers (f/m/d)
2 open positions for Postdoctoral Researchers (f/m/d)
4 open positions for Doctoral or Postdoctoral Researchers (f/m/d)
The Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter Made to Order (3DMM2O) combines the competencies of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Heidelberg University to advance 3D Additive Manufacturing to the next level. The goal is to break current barriers of scale, precision and speed to unleash the true potential of the technology. The work is aligned alongside three interdependent Research Areas: Molecular Materials (A), Technologies (B) and Applications (C). More on the Cluster and its research on our website: https:/3dmm2o.de/.
Upon acceptance, the Doctoral Researchers will be part of the structured doctoral program offered by the HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials, which brings together Young Scientists in an interdisciplinary environment. The participating disciplines encompass chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, biophysics, biology, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering.
