Eligibility: Candidates must have an MSc or equivalent in any field of the geosciences, material science, physics or chemistry. Familiarity with mathematics and mechanics is desirable. Personal mobility for visits to cooperation partners is required.

Scholarship Open for International Students: German applicants are eligible to apply for this position.

Scholarship Description: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich is one of Europe’s leading research universities. The LMU Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences invites applications of candidates for a doctoral position in the project „Partially open grain and phase boundaries as fluid pathways in metamorphic rocks: new observations and modelling“, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation – DFG). The position is financed for three years (salary scale 75% E13). We aim to understand how nanometre-scale open grain and phase boundary networks are formed in metamorphic rocks, how these networks respond to thermal and mechanical loading scenarios and how this affects material properties such as permeability, reactivity, and mechanical properties. We will employ high resolution electron and optical microscopy techniques as well as numerical forward modelling by discrete and finite-element methods. The project will open a wide field of further research on properties of any type of polycrystalline material and specifically on the design of technical materials.

Duration of award(s): The position is financed for three years.

What does it cover? The position is financed for three years (salary scale 75% E13).

How to Apply: The application – containing a cover letter, CV, record of academic degrees (including transcript of records), a list of education, professional training and work, and publications (if applicable), and contact information of three references – should be sent via email to kruhl-at-tum.de (Jörn H. Kruhl) latest by October 15, 2015.

Scholarship Application Deadline: The application deadline is October 15, 2015.
