• Materials for organic light emitting diodes

Applications should be written in English or German and contain:
• a curriculum vitae
• copies of the university degrees
• a verification of the Ph.D. student status
• a brief description of the topic of the Ph.D. thesis
• the used experimental techniques and the progress of the Ph.D. work
• an outline of the planned experiments and an anticipated schedule of the stay
• a description how the planned experiments contribute to the Ph.D. thesis
• a description how the planned experiments contribute to the goals of the SFB
• a statement of the Ph.D. advisor stating support of the application

Applications can be sent at any time either by mail or by e-mail to

Prof. Andreas Klein
Technische Universität Darmstadt
FB Material- und Geowissenschaften
