Research and Career Opportunities at TU Darmstadt
Application deadline November 15th, 2019
A postdoc is the next step after the doctorate and thus the next step in your academic career. To offer the best possible support for young researchers on their academic path, TU Darmstadt has implemented Postdoc Career Programmes, which meet the particular challenges of an early research career. Currently new calls are open: Career Bridging Grant and ´Future Talent´ Guest Stay are tailored especially for advanced international Phds and young international Postdocs.
Inspired by nature
Scientists at TU Darmstadt have developed a nanopore-microchip
Medical professionals and environment analysts would like to have microchips that measure substances directly on site. Scientists at TU Darmstadt have developed and patented a system based on nanopores with broad potential.
New evidence for structural brain changes in Coffin-Siris syndrome
Ulrike Nuber and her team have shown that a variety of structural brain changes can occur in Coffin-Siris syndrome. For doctors and affected individuals an important step.
DFG support for Professor Jürgen Rödel
Materials scientists at TU Darmstadt aim to reinvent the material ceramic. To this end, they are delving into its atomic structure. The German Research Foundation (DFG) is supporting this within the framework of a prestigious Reinhart Koselleck project.
Tomorrow´s coolants of choice
Scientists assess the potential of magnetic-cooling materials
Later during this century, around 2060, a paradigm shift in global energy consumption is expected: we will spend more energy for cooling purposes than for heating. Meanwhile, the increasing penetration of our daily lives with cooling applications causes a rapidly growing ecological footprint. New refrigeration rocesses such as magnetic cooling could limit the resulting impact on climate and the environment. Researchers at Technische Universität Darmstadt and Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have taken a closer look at today´s most promising materials. The result of their work is the first systematic magnetocaloric material library with all relevant property data, which they have published now in the journal Advanced Energy Materials.
Fellows of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation
Introducing Dr. Huliang Dai
Dr. Huliang Dai from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China) is researching nonlinear dynamics, vibration control and flow-induced vibrations energy harvesting . He is a guest of Professor Dr. Peter Hagedorn at the department of Mechanical Engineering.
New, interdisciplinary degree programme in Cognitive Science to commence in the winter semester
Cognitive Science is founded on the basic assumption that the human mind is essentially an information processing system. It uses algorithms to understand and explain human intelligence. From the 2019/20 winter semester, Cognitive Science is available to study as Bachelor’s and Master's degree programmes at TU Darmstadt. The Director of the Centre for Cognitive Science, Professor Constantin Rothkopf, explains what the students can expect.
European University “UNITE!” is coming
TU Darmstadt together with six universities successful in Initiative competition
TU Darmstadt is awarded the title of “European University” by the EU Commission, together with six European technical universities. The alliance known as “UNITE!” will receive five million Euro of funding for three years. The aim is to create a trans-European campus.
Research at the Institute of Parallel Programming
Computer scientists from TU Darmstadt are using a trick from astrophysics to predict the rewiring of nerve cells in the brain. The aim of their model is to support neurosurgeons and advance artificial intelligence.
More power for the green transformation
Research at the Institute of Political Science
International treaties set the framework but the future of our planet is decided largely in the nation states. Political scientists at TU Darmstadt analyse climate protection policy in the global South.
Freezing living cells under the light mircoscope
Professor Thomas Burg freezes living cells and organisms under the light microscope without a time delay. His aim: a better link between light and electron microscopy.
Double perspective on sustainable urban development
Joint degree master’s programme at TU and Vietnamese-German University
TU Darmstadt is offering its first joint degree master’s programme, which will start in the winter semester 2019/20. "Sustainable Urban Development" (SUD) will be jointly supported by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Sciences at TU Darmstadt and the Vietnamese-German University in Ho Chi Minh City. Professor Hans-Joachim Linke from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Sciences explains what prospective students need to know about this special master's degree programme.
International Conference on Machine Learning 2019
TU the only university from Germany among the Top 50 contributing universities
Machine learning experts from around the world will gather at the 36th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) to present the latest advances in machine learning understanding. The International Conference on Machine Learning is one of the most prestigious conferences for peer-reviewed research in Machine Learning, alongside NeurIPS, ICLR and others. And ICML is of the most relevant to Deep Learning (DL), although NeurIPS has a longer DL tradition and ICLR, being more focused, has a higher DL density.
Making sense of linguistic data
New Master's degree programme Data and Discourse Studies
Ever larger amounts of data are being generated in science and industry. Experts are needed in market analysis or communication departments, who can understand and process this data and convert it into comprehensible texts that are appropriate for specific target groups. Marcus Müller, TU Professor of Digital Linguistics, explains in an interview the new English Master's degree programme in Data and Discourse Studies.
Security and privacy vulnerabilities
When your Apple device allows file stealing, reveals first name and blacks out
International research team discovers security and privacy vulnerabilities in Apple’s iOS and macOS. The researchers strongly recommend users of Apple devices to install updates.
