The School of Analytical Sciences Adlershof (SALSA) offers fellowships for doctoral candidates in chemistry, biology, physics and natural sciences. Doctoral research within SALSA is supervised by researchers of HU, TU, UP, ETH Zurich, University of Oviedo, the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, the Helmholtz Zentrum für Materialien und Energie Berlin, the Leibniz-Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften, the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, and the Zuse-Institut Berlin.


Analytical sciences are at the core of many of today's fundamental and applied scientific problems and innovations. In SALSA, analytical problem solving is taught and learned using an integrative and multidisciplinary approach. The program offers a structured, three-year research period combined with a curriculum in analytical sciences. Graduate students with a Master’s degree or equivalent are invited to apply. Research within SALSA is concentrated in two areas:

A. Biomolecular detection and characterization in complex environments:

A1 - New probes for analytics in biological environments
A2 - Localized surface plasmons for bioanalytical applications
A3 - Towards quantitative microscopy and bio-imaging

B. Analytics of structures and networks:

B1 - In situ analytics at surfaces and in networks
B2 - Multimodal structural and functional analysis of materials
B3 - Analytics of internal interfaces in composite materials
