International Max-Planck Research School on Astrophysics - IMPRS

  Dear Colleagues,
  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.
