PhD / Postdoc Position Interest Form

CENIDE is an internationally recognized institute for cutting-edge materials research and development with over 85 research groups. In six research areas, scientists integrate the fundamental understanding on the nanoscale to create new sustainable solutions for major societal challenges in the field of energy, information technology and health.

Working here at CENIDE comes with a lot of benefits, like the NETZ building, a modern center with laboratories and offices, where physicists, chemists and engineers do their research side by side. But also the ICAN (Interdisciplinary Center for Analytics on the Nanoscale), located at the NETZ, where analyses on the nanometer scale are enabled through high-quality machines, actual methods and scientific expertise.

The interdisciplinary network at CENIDE across disciplines is a great opportunity to do research with a lot of input from experienced scientists across disciplines, and also to start new collaborations and create a strong network.

If you are interested to learn more about the different research areas of CENIDE and the working groups behind it, you can do it here.

As an Early Career Researcher of CENIDE a lot of input awaits you next to your research, like a brought offer on workshop topics, social and scientific events and a mentoring program.

Statements from Early Career Researchers about CENIDE

Claudia-Francisca Lopez Camara

“I am still impressed by the world-class laboratories and many available resources for professional development that we have here. Everyone is open to collaborate and there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Plus, the uniqueness of having most of the nanoparticle characterization techniques right in the same building. I cannot ask for more, I love working here!”

Sebastian Grimm

“UDE allows me to arrange my working hours based on my needs. This made it possible to optimally combine work and family life or other personal interests, finally being successful as a scientist and parent. At CENIDE, I experienced a culture of possibilities rather than challenges. I can definitely say that CENIDE is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration rather than single scientists sitting in their ivory towers. The PIs, as well as colleagues, always have open doors for discussions.“

Abbas El Moussawi

“CENIDE has been for me the portal to enter the research world. I am grateful for that and for the opportunity to collaborate under one roof with leading scientists from diverse fields and utilize state of the art research technologies for advancing in science.”
