2 DAAD-funded scholarships starting in 2016 for foreign doctoral candidates within Graduate School BuildMoNa

The Graduate School BuildMoNa is a structured doctoral programme that focuses on interdisciplinary graduate education through top-level research within the framework of the Research Academy Leipzig.
The Graduate School’s materials research concept is based on a “bottom-up” approach. Progressive building blocks, such as nano-objects, smart molecules, polymeric scaffolds, peptides, and active proteins, are combined – preferentially by self-organisation – to create fundamentally new classes of materials that are inspired by active, adaptive living matter.

Further information and research topics are available at our website.

Please indicate that you are applying for a scholarship within the DAAD-funded programme by adding “DAAD-GSSP” in the comment field of the online application form.
