Passing on Knowledge
Educating young scienstists forms an integral part of our research agenda. About half of our staff are PhD students. Most of them are enrolled at RWTH Aachen University. Over the years, many graduates of our institute have gone on to become leading scientists in their respective fields.
Current PhD projects are listed below. Please check our Jobs page for open positions:
|Ingo Kröger||Adsorption of Phthalocyanine molecules on noble metal surfaces||2011||C. Kumpf|
|Giuseppe Mercurio||X-ray standing waves||2011||F. S. Tautz|

The institute also hosts a Postdoctoral Research-Fellow funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Dr. Tomoki Sueyoshi from Chiba University, Japan). Of course, we also offer and supervise Bachelor and Master projects.
In addition, members of PGI-3 regularly teach at RWTH Aachen University.
