The Joint European Doctoral Program in Advanced Materials Science and Engineering (DocMASE) is an international program with the participation of universities in Germany, France, Spain and Sweden and supported by the Erasmus Mundus program of the European commission. The DAAD will provide within its program Graduate School Scholarship Program (GSSP) two further scholarships for starting doctoral thesis work at the Saarland University in Germany from April 2017.
The Materials Science and Engineering Department (MSE) of Saarland University is recognised as one of the leading centres of materials science in Germany. The department is formed by 11 chairs covering the wide spectrum of materials science. Scientific research at the university is particularly enhanced by intensive collaboration with distinguished research centres established on the university campus, like the Leibnitz Institute of New Materials (INM), the Fraunhofer Institute for Non-Destructive Testing (IZfP), and the Material Engineering Center Saar (MECS).
Their PhD position is open for the following research topic:
The other PhD position is open for the following research topic:
Applications must be received by 31 October 2016 through their online application system (opens on Monday, 15 August).
DocMASE is aimed at candidates with a Master’s (or equivalent) degree in Materials Science and Engineering, or other related subjects such as Physics or Chemistry. Very good English knowledge is required, German knowledge will be an advantage. The DAAD scholarships are available for non-German candidates that have not lived more than 15 months in Germany until the 31.10.2016.
The DAAD funding is for up to three or (in the case of developing and emerging countries) for up to four years and will cover:
