The Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM), is inviting master students with a strong background in natural sciences or engineering to join us for eight weeks of compelling and demanding nanotechnology research starting on 1 July, 2010.
On each of the sixteen projects in Munich, Großhadern and Augsburg one or two participants are matched with a graduate fellow acting as a research mentor.
As a participant you will collaborate with other international students to
- Work on fascinating and demanding topics in Nano Sciences
- Operate state of the art scientific equipment
- Sharpen your scientific and technical skills
- Develop your presentation and scientific writing abilities
Research projects are offered in the following fields:
- Analytical Transmission Electron Microscopy
- Experimental Physics - Biological Physics
- Fluorescence Applications in Biology (2)
- Functional Nanosystems
- Inorganic Chemistry (2)
- Physical Chemistry - Materials Science (6)
- Theoretical Physics - Molecular Electronics
- Theoretical Solid State Physics
Scientific education is not the only intent of the program, since the students can also experience German culture and life-style. A supporting program will be organized with weekend trips to touristic destinations and other informal activities.
