The German Cluster of Excellence “CUI: Advanced Imaging of Matter” of the University of Hamburg explores the dynamics of complex systems, bridging concepts and methodologies for the study of ‘small’ well controlled quantum systems to ever greater length scales and complexity, from large molecules to solid state systems and nano systems. It investigates how new functionalities emerge with the increasing complexity and size of a system and how new functionalities can be generated dynamically. International researchers from different disciplines such as physics, chemistry, and structural biology have joined forces to observe, understand, and control these processes in Hamburg.

The scholarships support the academic qualification in the framework of relevant master's programmes of Universität Hamburg, i.e. physics, nanoscience and chemistry. Scholarship holders are required to complete the relevant master study curricula, but also have the opportunity to engage in optional research projects as part of the Cluster. Scientific topics for projects include photon science, quantum physics, theoretical physics, nanostructure and solid-state physics, physical chemistry, biochemistry, femtosecond and attosecond laser spectroscopy, X-ray physics at FreeElectron Lasers, coherent X-ray imaging, ultrafast science, atomic, molecular and optical physics, quantum gases, nanochemistry as well as machine learning.

We are aiming to attract exceptional national and international students to the Cluster of Excellence and help them build an optimal foundation for their further scientific and professional development. Successful applicants can expect to benefit from excellent research conditions, explore a broad range of subjects and become part of an inspiring community. We particularly encourage international students to apply.

Scholarship conditions

The scholarships start at the earliest on 1 October 2024 and are funded with €934 per month for a duration of 12 months. The projects will be undertaken at the Departments of Physics or Chemistry of Universität Hamburg or, if applicable, at Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), Max-Planck-Institut für Struktur und Dynamik der Materie (MPSD) or European XFEL.

The deadline is 15 July 2024. If the application deadline cannot be maintained due to the different international term schedules, it is also possible to submit your application after the deadline. Please read the full advertisement (PDF) for more information on the expectations and assessment criteria, and the application process.
