The Research Training Group (RTG) 1703 "Resource Efficiency in Corporate Networks – Methods for Enterprise and Corporate Level Planning to Utilize Renewable Resources" (Speaker: Prof. Dr. Jutta Geldermann) offers

12 PhD positions (75% E 13 TV-L; 3 years)

from 1st April 2012. The RTG is supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and is located at the Georg-August-University Goettingen. Involved disciplines are: Forestry, Agricultural Sciences, Mathematics, Business Information Systems and Economics. Dissertations are possible in the research areas: materials and technology (A), planning of production and supply chains for renewable resources (B), and governance, coordination and distribution (C).

The Research Training Group:
Renewable raw materials are becoming increasingly important as an alternative resource base in industrial corporate networks. The RTG develops methods to improve the efficient use of renewable resources in production processes with by-products. The investigation focuses on wood and other fibrous raw materials used in the manufacturing and process industry. The aim is cascade utilization, thus the multiple utilization of a raw material before its conversion into energy. Several levels of the value chain as well as steering cross-divisional functions are taken into consideration.

Application requirements:
• By 1st April 2012 hold a very good M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) in: Agricultural Sciences, Applied Mathematics, Biology, Business Administration (preferred specializations: Marketing, Organization, Production and Logistics), Business Chemistry/Industrial Chemistry, Business Information Systems, Chemistry, Computer Sciences,  Economathematics, Forestry, Geoecology, Information Technology, Industrial Engineering, Mathematics, Material Sciences, Technical Mathematics or a similar subject,
• very good English and German skills (written and spoken) and
• the skills and willingness to work independently and in interdisciplinary teams.

The University of Goettingen actively seeks to foster career opportunities for female scholars and therefore strongly encourages qualified women to apply. Candidates with disabilities who are equally qualified for the position will receive special consideration.

Detailed information on the research topics and the training program as well as the application platform are available at Please apply before 5th January 2012.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
