Prof. Roland A. Fischer
Chair of Inorganic and Metal-Organic Chemistry
Which research topics are dealt with at your chair and which practical methods are used?strong>
For the exact topics, you are welcome to have a look at our current publications. Preparative synthetic metal organics, coordination chemistry including solid-state chemistry (MOFs) and analytical methods (PXRD SCXRD, electron microscopy, gas sorption, NMR spectroscopy, etc.) are applied.
How is the schedule and content of a research internship designed at your working group?
We generally have flexible working hours around lectures. In terms of examination regulations, a total of 20 full working days must be completed.
Is a progress/final talk about the research internship planned?
Yes, a final talk is planned in the working group seminar, which also conveys the presentation of the scientific work.
How and in what way can one apply for a research internship at your working group?
The best thing to do is to contact a doctoral student by name, course of study and interests.
What kind of previous knowledge is required for a research internship at your working group?
We are obliged to accept research interns. So, no one will be rejected if he has the basic knowledge of inorganic chemistry and is interested in the topic.
Can a research intership be expanded to a master’s thesis?
Provided that it works under the working conditions for all participants, with pleasure.
Is there a possibility of remuneration for a master’s thesis?
The following applies: The master’s thesis is an examination that cannot be remunerated. All Master’s students with us have the chance to get an employment contract on a 450 € basis for secondary jobs in research and teaching, which are carried out separately from the master’s thesis in terms of content, space and time.
How much cake does your chair expect?
For each internship, one contribution, being a cake, other pastries or dishes, is required for one of our weekly breakfast brunches.
