International Max Planck Research School
The Max Planck Society and Heidelberg University collaborate in the International Max Planck Research School for Astronomy & Cosmic Physics (IMPRS-HD) at the University of Heidelberg. IMPRS-HD allows highly-qualified students to work towards a doctoral degree in the area of astronomy or astrophysics from Heidelberg University as they pursue research for their thesis at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics or the Center for Astronomy of Heidelberg University.
IMPRS-HD offers several three-year fellowships to both international and German students. It is an independent part of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics. IMPRS-HD is coordinated by MPIA's Christian Fendt.
Additional information about the program, the application procedure and the current IMPRS-HD fellows can be found on the
