Scholarship Description: The International Max Planck Research School “Elementary Particle Physics – Theoretical, Experimental and Cosmological Frontiers” is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute of Physics (Werner Heisenberg Institute) and the particle and astroparticle physics groups of the Ludwig Maximilian University Munich (LMU) and the Technical University Munich (TUM) . Since April 2005 the School has been offering excellent research opportunities to highly qualified doctoral students. Research fields covered by the School from both an experimental and a theoretical perspective include high energy particle physics, astroparticle physics, and cosmology. The physics of strong interactions, quantum chromodynamics, symmetries and mechanisms for symmetry breaking, neutrino physics and neutrino astrophysics, supersymmetry, string theory, physics and technology of particle detectors, dark matter, cosmic rays, and weak interaction physics are just a few examples of the range of topics under investigation. The students’ own research is supplemented by an accompanying lecture program. Regular seminars, workshops, and other joint events serve to broaden the intellectual horizon, stimulate interaction between IMPRS members, and provide valuable background knowledge on topics beyond the students’ own research project.
Number of awards offered: Not Known
Duration of award(s): The duration of International PhD fellowships for a maximum period of three years.Seminar Visit the seminar regularly and give a presentation about your research work about once a year. The seminar takes place once a month. Students are expected to visit the seminar during their whole time as PhD Student. Lectures and Block Courses During the semester several lectures related to the research performed in the IMPRS are offered at the two universities. In addition special IMPRS block courses are held during the semester breaks with dedicated research topics. IMPRS students have to visit three lectures or block courses (together) during their time as a PhD student.
