The Boysen - TU Dresden - Research Training Group for Young Researchers from the Engineering, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, co-financed by the Friedrich and Elisabeth Boysen Foundation and Technische Universität Dresden, offers, subject to resources being available, 16 doctoral scholarships for a period of three years starting on 1st January 2019. The interdisciplinary Research Training Group Mobility in flux - Challenges and solutions for technology, environment and society consists of four Clusters.

Cluster A: New Materials

Disciplines involved:

Energy Process Engineering; Chemistry; Measurement and Sensor System Technology

Cluster A approaches the topic from a technical-scientific perspective with the intention of advancing the development of new propulsion systems. The aim is to improve energy efficiency in the production of new materials, to minimise and reduce exhaust emissions and immissions to a minimum, and thus help to avoid environmental and health problems. The cluster consists of three sub-projects:

SP A1:    Development of novel oxidation catalysts for the removal of VOCs and NOx

SP A2:    Theoretical and experimental investigation of process boundary conditions
in pulsating flows for the production of novel oxidation catalysts

SP A3:    Non-invasive characterisation of fluid particle interaction in a pulsation reactor

If you have any questions, please contact the Cluster spokesperson

Prof. Dr.–Ing. Michael Beckmann:

Applicants are expected to have an outstanding university degree and a high level of willingness for interdisciplinary work and research. Common premises will be provided. The receipt of the scholarship obliges the student to be present at the Research Trainings Group's premises on three fixed core days per week. Participation in the Research Training Group's teaching programme is obligatory. Training and qualification opportunities are offered (e.g. project management, soft skills, language courses).

Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.

Your application must include a letter of motivation, a CV, copies of academic certificates or other relevant qualifications (language certificates, further education). In addition, a text sample of max. 10 pages must be added (essay, graduation thesis, publication). Please send your application by 30th October 2018 (stamped arrival date of the university central mail service applies) with the subject "Boysen - TUD Dresden – Research Training Group" preferably as an E-Mail via the TU Dresden SecureMail Portal as a single pdf file to or to

TU Dresden, Fakultät Maschinenwesen,

Institut für Verfahrenstechnik und Umwelttechnik, Professur für Energieverfahrenstechnik,

Herrn Prof. Dr.- Ing. Michael Beckmann, Helmholtzstr. 10, 01069 Dresden.

Please submit copies only, as your application will not be returned to you.

Expenses incurred in attending interviews cannot be reimbursed.
