Details of the application procedure
The IMPRS is no longer accepting applications.
A limited number of PhD fellowships for applicants holding a Master of Science or an equivalent degree is available. [more]
Students from most countries outside the European Union will have to apply for a visa to study in Germany. For details, ask the nearest German Embassy or Consulate, advisably before you send the application. Usually you must submit a letter from us stating that you are accepted, and a proof of financial support (e.g. award of IMPRS scholarship).
All complete applications (including both letters of recommendation) will be made known to all research groups involved in the IMPRS. A selection committee will then select suitable top candidates for an interview where the candidates will give a short (20min) black-board presentation of their master's degree work followed by a question session.
Equal opportunity and family-friendly workplace
The IMPRS particularly welcomes applications from female students. The Albert Einstein Institute has been certified as a familiy-friendly employer.
