Unique – and with ample benefits
We want you as a PhD student, post-doc or guest researcher so that you can broaden your findings in research into multiscale and multiphysics modelling and simulation together with us.
By joining MUSIC you will benefit from…
the interdisciplinary work and the support of leading international institutes and lecturers
MUSIC is supported by four faculties and 11 institutes of Leibniz Univerität Hannover as well as DLR, Braunschweig which assure interdisciplinary work on each of the research topics worked out by our researchers.
the unique bridging of basic and applied science research
Experimental validation is a big issue for almost any simulation results. MUSIC and the 11 participating institutes of Leibniz Universität Hannover together with DLR, Braunschweig offer unique possibilities in testing and experimenting for validating simulation data, leading to a higher degree of significance and acceptance.
a short period of study
At MUSIC your PhD studies can normally be completed in three or a maximum of four years.
the Germany/France double graduation option and offers of research studies abroad
The intensive collaboration with Ecole Polytechnique and Ecole Normale Supérieur de Cachan means that MUSIC can offer you a unique double graduation option and therefore the possibility of performing a part of your research studies in France. Cooperation programmes with other universities such as UC Berkeley may well entice you to widen your international research experience.
a double coaching concept
Depending on the topic of the promotion and the interdisciplinary nature of the studies, mentors from each of the institutes involved are nominated right at the beginning of your work to assure full supervision of your research.
our excellent simulation and computing capacities
New and modern equipment at every workplace as well as the hybrid computer centre in Hannover with our high-performance computing cluster assist your research work effectively. In addition, there is access to the HLRN-II supercomputers of the High-Performance Computer Interconnection North with two coupled installations in Hannover and Berlin which are No. 39/40 in the world ranking of the fastest supercomputers and No. 4/5 in Germany. Computing speed at each of these locations is an excellent 107.1 TFlops/s!
the Leibniz University’s comprehensive and leading technical library
The library at Leibniz Universität Hannover is Germany’s leading and largest library for engineering, mathematics and natural sciences. Here, registered students can investigate the background information to their work online.
numerous industrial apprenticeship possibilities
Many industrial partners such as SIMULIA/ABAQUS, Airbus, EADS, Continental AG, Daimler AG, Michelin and Salzgitter AG actively participate in MUSIC or can be approached to grant apprenticeships.
our local personal assistance package
You can be sure that we won’t leave you alone! Personal assistance is always on hand during your time at MUSIC. Basic information about general qualification offers, stipends, the doctorate regulations of the faculties and other services can be found on the website of the Graduate Academy (Graduiertenakademie), which is the central coordination and service facility for all doctoral students at the university.
a very straightforward admission procedure
A fast-track admission procedure allows you to apply easily by filling in a simple form and sending copies of the documents necessary by e-mail first of all.
So, if your plans are based on a fast and professional development of your skills and tasks involving multiscale methods for interface problems within an interdisciplinary and intercultural environment, there is just one way to succeed: join MUSIC, or perhaps – for the first step – learn more about what we can do for you.
