Welcome to the application platform of the International Max Planck Research School on Astrophysics at the Ludwig Maximilians University Munich (IMPRS)!

If you would like to boost your career and to do your PhD in one of the largest centers for Astronomy and Astrophysics in Europe, then you are right to apply for a PhD position here.

The start and end of the application phase is displayed in the box on the right. For the online application you need to upload several documents such as your CV, a PDF scan of your transcripts and certificates as well as a (preliminary) abstract of your master thesis or any other project work you have undertaken during your master degree studies. Also please make sure, that your PDF documents (especially IELTS and TOEFL certificates, but also transcripts) are NOT password protected or encrypted pdf files. These will block the proper processing of the files and your application.

Further, you enter up to three names of three recommenders and their e-mail addresses. They will receive an automated e-mail asking them to upload a recommendation letter in support of your application (recommendation letter deadline November 21st). All application files will be made available to the IMPRS potential supervisors beginning of December for review and evaluation and you may be among the candidates shortlisted for invitation to our recruitment workshop February, 25-27 2019.

We are looking forward to receiving your application!
