The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids (MPI-CPfS) in Dresden, Germany performs world-leading fundamental research at the boundaries of solid-state chemistry and condensed-matter physics.
Our International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials (IMPRS-CPQM) started in January 2016 and is currently funded for an initial six years.
At IMPRS-CPQM, we offer a variety of doctoral research projects which cover the entire scope of research performed at MPI-CPfS. Every PhD project will have at least one supervisor based at MPI-CPfS and one at one of our partner universities, Technische Universität Dresden and the University of St Andrews, Scotland. For all projects, we envision an active involvement of both supervisors in the actual research and students may spend time at either institution to work on their project.
Research work will be combined with graduate courses and general skills training. Students can benefit from courses and other training opportunities offered at all three institutions.
At the core of IMPRS-CPQM is the research that we carry out, to which our PhD students make a major contribution. Thanks to the scale of our facilities, we cover a broad range topics in modern physics and chemistry research into quantum materials. All participating research institutions have a long history of excellent research in the relevant fields.
As it befits an interdisciplinary IMPRS like ours, we do not only cross boundaries between physics and chemistry in a large number of research topics, but rather choose a dedicated collaborative approach between research groups from different disciplines.
Our guesthouse is located on 2nd floor of the institute's building. Apartments are let for short stays of up to 2 months.Our apartments 1 to 7 are fully furnished and equipped with a single bed, a TV set, a kitchenette with sink, cooker and fridge and a bathroom with shower.Apartment 8 is a double room. It has a kitchen, combined living and bed room, and bathroom with shower. Apartment 9 has 2 separate rooms, a single and a double room and thus can be used as a shared apartment. It has a bathroom with bathtub and kitchenette but no cooker. Breakfast is served on working days at the institute’s cafeteria.Reservations are subject to availability.
Book lending only for members of the institute. Library introductions take place after a short consultation.
