Information for Students, Doctoral students and Postdocs
The HI ERN offers excellent future career opportunities and a vibrant, international working environment for students, doctoral students and postdocs.
The researchers at the HI ERN have the opportunity to interact and closely collaborate with our academic and industrial partners. We aim at world-class interdisciplinary research that relates to current energy-related issues using the all-new infrastructure at the HI ERN and the complementary facilities from our cooperation partners.
Our research is performed by international teams of scientists from different disciplines, i.e. chemistry, engineering, physics, materials science, etc. The websites of the research groups provide information on the individual research activities and focus of each group.
Doctoral students will be employees of Forschungszentrum Jülich which cooperates closely with the FAU through which the doctorates are officially awarded. Postdocs will also be employed at the Forschungszentrum. Employees of Jülich can participate in the development and further training courses of the Forschungszentrum. Moreover, doctoral students at the HI ERN are free to join the graduate program of the FAU. The scientific and technical training provided equip them with excellent skills and qualifications for their future career.
We are always interested in enthusiastic and skilled students, doctoral students and postdocs from all fields of science matching our research interests. If you find the prospect of working at the HI ERN an exciting opportunity, we encourage you to contact directly the leader of the research units you are interested in. Open positions for postdocs, doctoral, master and bachelor theses are also frequently posted on the HI ERN´s career webpage.
