IMPRS on Gravitational Wave Astronomy

IMPRS on Gravitational Wave Astronomy

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) on Gravitational Wave Astronomy is a collaboration between the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) at Potsdam and Hannover (Germany), the Leibniz Universität Hannover and the Laser Centre Hannover. It aims at educating a new generation of researchers in the emerging field of gravitational wave astronomy.

The IMPRS on Gravitational Wave Astronomy offers the unique opportunity to learn about gravitational wave research in both theoretical and experimental fields. The partnership of universities, leading research institutes and the GEO600 gravitational wave detector will provide our students with the opportunity to become familiar with all aspects of this exciting and promising research discipline.

Scientific research in this graduate school ranges from laser development, interferometry and quantum optics to data analysis and numerical simulations of gravitational wave sources. We welcome applications from students of all countries who will become the next generation of gravitational wave astronomers.
