NEW! Carl Zeiss Master of Scienc Scholarship open for application

HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials

Additive Manufacturing

The HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials is integral part of the Cluster of Excellence 3D Matter made to Order (3DMM2O), which is a collaboration of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Heidelberg University (Uni HD). It pursues an interdisciplinary approach through conjunction of natural, engineering and sciences.

3DMM2O establishes scalable digital 3D Additive Manufacturing transcending from the molecular to the macroscopic scale. The goal is the ultimate digitalization of 3D manufacturing and material processing. The cluster 3D Matter Made to Order consists of 32 Principal Investigators from the natural, engineering and life sciences.

The Carl Zeiss Foundation funds a scholarship program, which supports up to 20 PhD students PLUS a qualification scholarship program, which supports up to 4 MSc students per year in the HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials.

We are looking forward to your application!

 

Open Postions (last edit: May, 12 2020)

PhD position in Pavel A. Levkins group

Project Description: Multifunctional porous polymer materials for 3D printing

This Carl Zeiss fellowship funds a PhD project in the Levkin group. The project will include: a. development of novel polymer-based “inks” for 3D printing of multifunctional materials; b. surface and materials characterization; c. various applications of micro-nano structured 3D printed objects including tissue engineering (in collaboration), superhydrophobicity and special wettability. The project is interdisciplinary and will require collaborations with chemists, physicists and biologists.

PhD position in Gerardo Hernández-Sosas group

Project Description: μiniaturization of 3D Printed Optoelectronics

The integration of printed electronic devices in miniaturized complex hybrid electronic systems will require the design of 3D device architectures at the microscale. The project consists in fabricating and characterizing thin film electronic devices by printing technology on the basis of functional materials that combine processability and optoelectronic functionality.
