Invited for the doctoral program
applications are invited for the doctoral program of the
-> International Max Planck Research School for Astronomy &
Cosmic Physics at the University of Heidelberg (IMPRS-HD)
starting summer/autumn 2014.
The scientific environment in Heidelberg provides outstanding
research facilities with access to ground-based and space
telescopes as well as high-performance computers.
The following institutions of the Max Planck Society and
Heidelberg University take part in IMPRS-HD:
-> Max Planck Institute for Astronomy
-> Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics
-> Astronomisches Rechen-Institut
-> Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics
-> Landessternwarte Koenigstuhl
-> Heidelberg Institute of Theoretical Studies
A wide range of astrophysical topics is covered in Heidelberg,
** planet & star formation, metal-poor stars ** extrasolar
planets & substellar objects ** astrometry ** formation,
evolution & dynamics of galaxies ** active galactic nuclei &
massive black holes ** gravitational lensing ** cosmology &
structure formation ** high energy astrophysics, cosmic rays
& search for non-baryonic dark matter ** instrumentation for
astronomy & astro-particle physics **
IMPRS-HD offers several fellowships within a 3-year graduate program.
We invite highly-qualified students aiming for a doctoral degree
in astrophysics to apply by
-> December 1, 2013 for the academic year starting Sept. 2014
An earlier start of the research work is possible.
Applicants are generally required to expect a MSc (or equivalent)
in Physics or Astronomy including an extensive MSc thesis and a
very good physics background.
