 How to apply:

First of all you need to be sure of the subject and the topic you apply for. The Schubert group regularly posts job openings on the website. Other than checking the posts, we advise you to go through our website to check our research topics, the methods and instruments we use, as well as the cooperation we participate in and the papers published in the recent years.

Note that you do not have to meet a certain deadline for your application (unless stated otherwise). However you do need to send in your curriculum vitae together with a motivation letter to inform us about your background, motives, what your input will be to the group and what you want to pursue in your career. Please also include reference letters from your supervisor(s).

After we receive your application, your qualifications and skills will be evaluated by the department. You may be invited to visit our group to give a short presentation about your previous studies and to discuss about any job possibilities, as well as to be presented a clear picture of the opportunities we provide our members with, as per technology and science, and to be introduced to the group members.

In case of an application invitation, the Laboratory of Organic and Macromolecular Chemistry will try to cover travel and accommodation expenses during your stay in Jena. For applicants from outside EU who need to have a valid visa to enter Germany, we also prepare an invitation letter to be used at the consulate to expedite the visa procedure.

If you come to an agreement, the faculty will then check whether you are eligible (by means of recognizing your academic degree, fixing the language of your dissertation and oral exam etc.). The faculty may ask you to hand in additional documents to submit with your application. The faculty will give you notice of acceptance.

Schubert group grants scholarships or positions on industrial projects to all PhD students. For this purpose, we are keeping close contact and taking part in cooperation with institutes and companies, which seek successful research studies in Organic and Macromolecular Chemistry and Nanoscience.
