Quantum Mechanical Materials Modelling QM3

University of Bremen, Jacobs University and University of Oldenburg and MPIHH have established a strong combination of Quantum Mechanical Materials Modelling  expertise from condensed matter theory to quantum chemistry and from ab initio methods to model Hamiltonians and force fields. On this basis, the RTG aims to build a uniquely interdisciplinary research and training environment, which combines the most important directions in quantum mechanical materials modelling from physics and chemistry in a structured doctoral program.

ArcTrain - Processes and impacts of climate change in the North Atlantic Ocean and the Canadian Arctic

International Research Training Group

The International Research Training Group ArcTrain "Processes and impacts of climate change in the North Atlantic Ocean and the Canadian Arctic" provides a structured interdisciplinary environment for the education of PhD students to tackle the challenge of accelerated environmental change in the Arctic realm. The group combines the strength in marine geosciences and environmental physics in Bremen with complementary skills of a consortium of eight Canadian partner universities.

Models of Gravity'

The Research Training Group ''Models of Gravity'' deals with questions related to gravity. We attempt to obtain a better understanding of Einstein's General Relativity and of generalised theories of gravity.

Such generalisations arise in the low energy limit of candidate theories of quantum gravity like e.g. string theory. These investigations also have practical applications like, for instance, the precise calculations of stellar and satellite orbits or the ticking rates of clocks on satellites orbiting the Earth which is the basis of the daily used GPS.

Within the framework of this Research Training Group there will be an intensive interdisciplinary collaboration between physicists, mathematicians as well as space scientists. This collaborative research initiative comprises the universities Bremen and Oldenburg who are the leading partners and the Jacobs University Bremen and the Universities Bielefeld, Hannover and Copenhagen.

∏³ : Parameter Identification - Analysis, Algorithms, Implementations

This research training group focusses on problems in parameter identification which are at the core of a large variety of applications in natural sciences, life sciences, and engineering as well as in industrial applications. This rich field of science presents a multitude of challenges in several fields of mathematical and applied research. More precisely, the endeavour to develop, analyse, and optimise models and algorithms for deterministic parameter identification problems, which are formulated as high-dimensional minimisation problems for non-linear functionals, is the guiding principle of this RTG.

Micro-, meso- and macroporous nonmetallic Materials: Fundamentals and Applications MIMENIMA

The exceptional research idea of MIMENIMA is the conditioning of novel porous ceramic structures and their surfaces for applications in important emerging fields of energy, environmental, chemical processing, bio- and space technology. An interdisciplinary team of materials scientists, physicists, chemists, biotechnological, mechanical or chemical engineers will work together on this challenging topic. In addition to this multidisciplinary research program MIMENIMA offers an educational program with tailored scientific lectures, seminars, lab courses, workshops, summer schools, research visits at international cooperation partners and a mentoring program for the career development of women and an ongoing coaching of the scientific work.
