New graduate programme established
The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Gravitation, Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory was established on 1 January 2016.
The IMPRS for Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Gravitation, Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory aims to promote research in mathematical physics in an area related in the widest sense to Einstein's theory of general relativity and the quest for fundamental constituents of matter. It is a joint project between the Albert Einstein Institute in Potsdam, the University of Potsdam and Humboldt University Berlin.
The graduate programme offers a unique research and training opportunity to students from all around the world. Embedded in the close cooperation between the partner institutes of the IMPRS, students can pursue cutting-edge research projects in theoretical and mathematical physics. In addition, they can benefit from additional training courses aimed at improving for example presentation, writing and communication skills. The closely supervised PhD studies are designed to be completed within three years.
