Join us!

KIP provides a dynamic and diverse environment for the training of undergraduate and graduate students. Our ongoing research activities continuously generate challenging research topics which can be addressed in the frame of graduating. You will be trained by means of targeted research on an up-to-date problem of current solid state research.

Open B.Sc. topics

  • Studies on electrode materials for Li-ion batteries
  • Low-temperature (down to ca. 50 mK) heat capacity studies on geometrically frustrated magnets
  • DC and AC magnetisation studies on 2-dimensional quantum materials
  • Thermal expansion of quantum magnets

Open M.Sc. thesis topics

  • High-frequency ESR-spectroscopy on molecular magnets
  • Hierarchically structured materials for Li-ion batteries
  • Magneto-elastic coupling in quantum antiferromagnets
  • Interplay of magnetism and structure in 2D topological materials

PhD Topics

Heidelberg University runs an ambitious PhD program which combines outstanding basic science education with training in state-of-the-art experimental techniques. The program is associated with the Heidelberg Graduate School of Excellence HGSFP and applications can be done in the annual call for applications. In addition, there are open positions which evolve from our daily research activities and are filled on the short term. We therefore invite applicants at any time to submit their CV and a description of their research interests to Prof. R. Klingeler.

  • Open PhD project on molecular magnets
  • Open PhD project on Quantum Magnets (search for spin liquids)
