Hybrid Materials for Efficient Energy Generation and Information Technologies

Hybrid4Energy, the Graduate School of Hybrid Materials for Efficient Energy Generation and Information Technologies, is a joint venture of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie GmbH.

The program offers a structured, three-year period of multidisciplinary research combined with an integrated curriculum in physics and chemistry.

There are no open position for doctoral students available at the moment.

About Hybrid4Energy

The objective of this joint graduate school is to push interdisciplinary education, training, and research on hybrid organic/inorganic systems for electronic, optoelectronic and photovoltaic devices. The Campus Adlershof with its wide range of expertise allows doctoral students to grow and benefit from an excellent interdisciplinary environment and research facilities. The research program focuses on unravelling the electronic, optoelectronic, and photonic properties of organic/inorganic hybrid systems in a concerted experimental and theoretical approach studied, with the goal of predicting and controlling the material properties and functionalities. The knowledge gained will then be applied to the fields of renewable energy and next generation information technology.

To understand these novel hybrid systems we pursue an integrative approach as the desired properties cannot be understood simply in terms of individual components alone, but only as a result of their interplay. Our program embraces the full range of i) experiment and theory, ii) physic and chemistry, iii) fundamental and applied research. This will allow participants to bridge commonly separated fields of research, which will enable novel research approaches and concepts.
