International Max-Planck Research School on Astrophysics - IMPRS
For the second time, the International Max-Planck Research School on
Astrophysics (IMPRS) is soliciting applications for its PhD program.
Located in the beautiful Munich-Garching area in southern Bavaria
(Germany), the school offers a unique environment for graduate students
due to the presence of four internationally renowned institutes which
form the school:
* The Max-Planck Institute for extraterrestrial Physics (MPE)
* The Observatory of the University of Munich (LMU/USM)
* The Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics (MPA)
* The European Southern Observatory (ESO)
In addition, Astro-particle physics groups at the Technical University
of Munich and at the Werner-Heisenberg Institute for Physics are participating
as associated partners.
IMPRS offers a highly competitive PhD program, including lectures,
seminars, and a research project supervised by scientists at one of the
participating institutions. Course language is English. Students have
access to ground and spaced based observatories and instrumentation
operated by the participating institutes as well as supercomputers for
advanced numerical simulations and theoretical studies. Successful
completion of the 3 year program by meeting the requirements of the
Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU) leads to a doctoral (PhD)
degree in natural sciences (rerum naturalium) awarded by LMU.
Applications for the program are open to students from all countries.
More details on the IMPRS program and the admission requirements can be
found at the IMPRS website http://www.imprs-astro.mpg.de/
The closing date for applications for the program starting in September
2002 is January 15, 2002. Please apply by using the IMPRS application
form available on-line at http://www.imprs-astro.mpg.de/admission.html
In addition to this announcement we have a small IMPRS-poster available
which we would ask you to print and to display for your students. The
poster is available at
Many thanks for your support.
