Call for application: Master Erasmus Mundus MaMaSELF 2013-2015

MaMaSELF is a 2 year ERASMUS MUNDUS Master Course in Materials Science Exploring Large Scale Facilities. It deals with material characterization using neutron and synchrotron radiation with strong synergies between universities, industrial partners and research centres. In an international environment, it offers excellent academic and industrial opportunities to Master Students.

Master Erasmus Mundus MaMaSELF

  •   Mamaself : a 2 year Master course in Materials science.
  • Fellowships available for both European students  and Non-European students
  • An international Master in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus 2 programme

Master in Materials Science Exploring Large Scale Facilities.

Mamaself is a 2 year full time Master aiming to promote the scientific collaboration between Universities, Large scale facilities and Industry.

This Master is the result of the collaboration between four Universities: University Rennes 1, (France), University of Torino, (Italy), Technical University (TUM) and the Ludwig Maximilian University München (Germany). The University of Montpellier 2 (France) is now full partner of the Mamaself Consortium. The Master degree will be delivered by two of the four universities, so the students will receive a double Master degree in Materials Science.

Each student will spend one year in a first hosting institution, the first semester of the second Master year at another university. The last semester is dedicated to the Master thesis and can be spent at a university or Large scale Faclities or at a partner institution in Japan, Switzerland or India.

Grants for Non-European students

For each academic year the consortium of universities selects Non-European students who will receive a grant. Each Non-European student will receive a grant of 22.000 euros per year. Deadline for application: 28.01.2013. Non-EU students who already spent a time in Europe can applicate in the cat B fellowship, deadline 18.5.2011.


Students must have 180 ECTS (or equivalent) in Material Science or related disciplines (Chemistry, Physics, Geoscience,…), good academic records and  good English competencies. The application must be done online on:

The deadline for submission is: 28 January 2013, the deadline for students who apply without EM grant is: 18 Mai 2013

Instruction language is English for lectures and for all communication.
