PhD and Scientists’ positions at LIMTECH, Germany

(from Gunter Gerbeth, Dresden, Germany)

29 PhD and 11 Scientist positions offered in frame of the German Helmholtz Alliance LIMTECH

The German Helmholtz Association established a so-called Helmholtz-Alliance in the field of “Liquid Metal Technologies” (LIMTECH), starting on Oct. 1, 2012 for the period of 5 years. Mainly based on the Helmholtz Centres in Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and Karlsruhe (KIT) and in very close cooperation with Universities (Dresden, Freiberg, Ilmenau, Hannover, Potsdam, Goettingen, Aachen, Coventry, Riga) and further Helmholtz partners (Juelich, DLR) the Helmholtz Alliance shall intensify the research in this field. The alliance is coordinated by Dr. Gunter Gerbeth (g.gerbeth(at)hzdr.de). LIMTECH consists of 14 projects and a Young Investigator Group. The experimental and theoretical-numerical research works range from basic studies on turbulence, magnetically induced instabilities and dynamos, to measurement techniques for liquid metal flows, the use of liquid metals in future solar power stations or liquid metal batteries, up to applied investigations for the improvement of metal casting or crystal growth technologies. LIMTECH involves 29 PhD and 11 scientist positions. Details about LIMTECH, the various projects and the corresponding position offers please find at
