Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Rese­arch Trai­ning Group (RTG) 2767 „Supra­col­lo­idal Struc­tures: From Mate­ri­als to Opti­cal and Elec­tro­nic Devices“

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

About the RTG
The RTG 2767 aims to train a new genera­tion of experts who will design mate­ri­als made of supra­col­lo­idal struc­tures from the drawing board to app­li­ca­tion in com­pon­ents. Nano­par­ti­cles are used in many opti­cal and elec­tro­nic com­pon­ents nowa­days. Supra­col­lo­idal struc­tures are com­plex super­st­ruc­tures com­po­sed of dif­fe­rent nano­par­ti­cles, simi­lar to how atoms are lin­ked to mole­cu­les. This results in inno­va­tive, excep­tio­nally pro­mi­sing opti­cal and elec­tro­nic pro­per­ties that go far bey­ond those of the indi­vi­dual buil­ding blocks. To date, these struc­ture-pro­perty rela­ti­ons­hips of the assem­bled par­ti­cles are not ade­qua­tely unders­tood. The tech­no­lo­gi­cal visi­ons of these new mate­ri­als include novel solar cells, field ampli­fi­ca­tion for highly sen­si­tive spec­tro­scopy, bio­sen­sing app­li­ca­ti­ons where com­plex detec­tion pro­ces­ses are made simp­ler, and even on-site sam­ple exami­na­tion using smart­pho­nes. In order to rea­lize the tech­ni­cal com­ple­xity in the trai­ning, nume­rous insti­tu­ti­ons are con­nec­ted wit­hin the RTG’s 2767 tight net­work, inclu­ding various groups at the TU Dres­den, the Uni­ver­si­tät Leip­zig, the TU Dres­den Rese­arch Clus­ter cfaed and the Dres­den Cen­ter for Nano­ana­ly­sis as well as the Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Poly­mer­for­schung Dres­den e. V., the Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den - Ros­sen­dorf e. V. and the Kurt-Schwabe-Insti­tut für Mess- und Sen­sor­tech­nik Meins­berg e.V.


Gene­ral Requi­re­ments
  • above-average uni­ver­sity degree achie­ved in short study period,
  • wil­ling­ness and abi­lity to think bey­ond the bounda­ries of your field, to act in an inter­na­tio­nal and diverse envi­ron­ment and to live an open and con­struc­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion,
