Required is a Diploma or Master degree and a profound knowledge of the English language. You should write a very precise letter of personal motivation (statement of purpose) in which you explain your qualifications to perform outstanding research and to author an excellent thesis on that topic.
To facilitate the selection of a suitable PhD project, please refer to the short descriptions of our working groups. It is recommend to read more about the work of your target research group: you should be somewhat familiar with the different lines of research within that group before you apply.
Currently, no applications are possible. We are restructuring our application process. A new call for applications will open in February 2019.
If you want to apply for a PhD position outside the IMPRS, please contact the relevant group leader(s) directly.
