5 Hermann Staudinger Doctoral Fellowships

The Cluster of Excellence Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS) at the University of Freiburg launches an open call for 5 Hermann Staudinger Doctoral Fellowships

Consider making the switch to the University of Freiburg: It is one of the most renowned and strongest research universities in Germany, with a history spanning more than 500 years. You’ll engage in top-notch research and teaching with a unique spectrum of disciplines, perspectives, and people - right in the heart of one of Germany’s most beautiful cities.
The University of Freiburg’s human resources policy is oriented toward the principles of equal opportunity and diversity. The university is committed to the goal of creating a family-friendly university.

The Cluster of Excellence Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS) at the University of Freiburg launches an open call for

to be filled in October 2019. livMatS develops completely novel, bioinspired materials systems that adapt autonomously to various environments and harvest clean energy from their surroundings. The intention of these purely technical - yet in a behavioral sense quasi-living - materials systems is to meet the demands of humans with regard to pioneering environmental and energy technologies. The societal relevance of autonomous systems and their sustainability will thus play an important role in their development.

The research program of livMatS is characterized by highly interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers from a broad range of fields including engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, psychology, the humanities, and sustainability sciences. Research is carried out in four interlinking research areas which target Concepts for Energy Autonomy and Integration, Concepts for Adaptive and Active Materials Systems, Concepts for the Longevity of Systems Functions, and Societal Challenges - Sustainability Assessment and Investigation of Psychological, Philosophical, and Ethical Implications of Living Materials Systems. Research in the different research areas will be integrated through the development of technology demonstrators.

The Cluster invites applications from exceptional candidates in the fields specified above who are committed to interdisciplinary research in a cutting-edge environment. Key selection criteria include the applicants’ thematic fit to the livMatS research foci, their academic performance and references, and the quality and feasibility of their planned project.

Applicants should have a master’s degree in one of the fields specified above. We expect enthusiasm, a strong motivation to work in an interdisciplinary team, an excellent academic record and good self-organization. Fluency in English is mandatory.

The application process will be carried out in two stages. Please follow the instructions at the livMatS homepage for submitting your application. Candidates selected during the first stage of the application process will receive an invitation to build and present an extended project proposal during the second stage.

Doctoral positions at livMatS are part-time positions (65%) and are limited to 36 months. The salary will be determined in accordance with TV-L E 13. We are particularly pleased to receive applications from women for the positions advertised here.

Please send in a complete and convincing application in English with all relevant supporting documents, including the reference number 00000550, by date 21.06.2019 at the latest. Please send your application to the following address in written or electronic form:
