The International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials
The 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. In IMPRS-CPQM, the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden, Germany, formally collaborates with two universities - Technische Universität Dresden and the University of St Andrews (Scotland) - to offer an internationally leading PhD programme in the field of materials chemistry and physics.
IMPRS-CPQM also collaborates with additional research partners who enhance the scientific expertise in our fields of research and thus increase the number of exciting research opportunities.
The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids (MPI CPfS) ist located in Dresden, Germany. The research activities of the institute focus on modern solid-state research at the interface of chemistry and physics.
The Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden) is one of the largest universities in Germany. Its research activities in the Department of Physics and the Department of Chemistry and Food Chemistry are a significant contribution to IMPRS-CPQM.
The University of St Andrews is one of the UK’s foremost ancient universities and is located at the eastern coast of Scotland. Its physics department, which is involved in IMPRS-CPQM, is one of the strongest in the UK.
