Developing and improving electrode materials for lithium-ion batteries requires the use of new raw materials and correspondingly adapted production processes. In the DaMaStE project, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with three million euros over three years, research institutes are working with battery material manufacturers and raw material
Congratulations to Dr. Lola González-García, Head of INM’s Junior Research Group “Electrofluids”. At the 2nd Annual Conference on Global Nanotechnology, she received the Nanoseries Innovation Award 2023.

On June 27th, the President of the Leibniz Association, Prof. Martina Brockmeier, paid a visit to the INM. She brought along inspiring discussions and valuable food for thought. The INM management was delighted to have the opportunity to speak with her about the challenges of the coming years. INM doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers also benefited from her visit and exchanged thoughts with her regarding the specific situation of young researchers in the scientific community.
In the research project “Cooperation Competence in Technology Transfer – Identification and Evaluation of Partners based on Patent Information” (KiTIE), coordinated by the INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken, researchers from five institutions across Germany are working together to optimize partner identification in technology transfer. Over the next three years, they aim to develop an IT-based tool that identifies potential cooperation partners based on patent information and patent utilization. The scientists are investigating, among other things, the necessary parameters for successful cooperation and their significance in the search process.
Have you graduated in the natural sciences or successfully completed your doctorate and are now looking for new challenges? The INM employs scientists from the materials sciences, biology, physics, chemistry and related disciplines. There is no standstill with us, we are constantly developing and are looking for new colleagues who would like to follow this path with us.
You could find the next step in your career in our job offers!
INM has a state-of-the-art infrastructure for in situ Electron Microscopy and seeks a Group Leader in Advanced Electron Microscopy (M/F/D) to establish a vibrant own research program and collaborate with existing scientific groups. This opening primarily targets junior scientists after their first postdoctoral stay aiming to consolidate their independent profile in the field. Senior scientists are also welcome to apply.
We will provide funding for your position as junior group leader, 2 PhD students, and one postdoctoral scientist. Start-up funding to set up your group and your research line and reasonable yearly funding for consumables will also be offered. The position is planned as a 5-years position.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has established six new priority programs (SPP, Schwerpunktprogramme), which will start next year and will initially be funded for three years with a total of 44 million euros. The programs, which are interdisciplinary and characterized by the use of innovative methods, are intended to investigate the scientific basis of particularly current or emerging areas of research. This includes SPP 2451 “Engineered Living Materials with Adaptive Functions”. It is coordinated by the INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken.
