The DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center / Transregio 227 of Freie Universität Berlin and Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg together with non-university institutions Fritz-Haber-Institut, Helmhotz-Zentrum Berlin, Max-Born-Institut and Max-Planck-Institut für Mikrostrukturphysik has just started in January 2018. The CRC/TRR 227 includes an integrated research training group (iRTG) that provides doctoral candidates a structured program for scientific and interdisciplinary training. The topics are closely tied to the CRC's scientific focus.
The research focus is to establish a fundamental understanding of ultrafast spin dynamics, thereby laying the foundations for spin-based information technology that can be operated at THz clock rates. This comprises cutting-edge experiments in ultrafast spectroscopy and multiscale theoretical modeling of spin dynamics.
Applicants require a MSc degree in Physics or a related area. Financial support is provided by CRC. Candidates are offered courses on transferable skills in collaboration with the Dahlem Research School Berlin (DRS) and the International Graduate Academy Halle (InGrA).
