Fellowships for PhD Students in Solar System Physics
The IMPRS on Physical Processes in the Solar System and Beyond at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Katlenburg-Lindau, Germany, offers excellent research possibilities for students to obtain a PhD degree in a three-year graduate program in collaboration with the Universities of Braunschweig and Goettingen.
Eligibility and other criteria
The research-oriented doctoral program focuses on training in solar and stellar physics, planetary sciences as well as underlying fundamental physics. Additional training in computational physics, space technology, presentation skills and scientific writing complete
the science program.
High-profile space missions, outstanding projects for ground-based instruments and data analysis, as well as theoretical and numerical modelling provide a wide range of research possibilities for PhD projects.
We encourage highly-qualified and well-motivated students from all countries to apply. Prerequisites include a MSc in physics or a related field (including a master thesis) and a good command of the English language.
The next review of applications begins on 15 February 2013 for a start of a PhD in autumn 2013.
Required application documents include a CV, a filled application form, copies of university certificates and two letters of recommendation. The application can be send by mail or by email (preferentially one attachment in pdf format).
