Applications have started
Before applying, read the following information carefully:
In Germany all PhD degrees are awarded by universities. The IMPRS-PTFS and its faculty are therefore part of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics (HGSFP) of Heidelberg University, which handles the admission and application procedure. The link to the application site is here.
IMPORTANT: First you have to register with username and passwort. Then, after login, you need to choose the branches "Astronomy and Cosmic Physics" and/or "Fundamental Interactions and Cosmology" and/or "Mathematical Physics". Then, you have to choose "IMPRS-PTFS" as school, because typically several schools are having calls for applications.
We strongly discourage you to apply in more than one graduate school in Heidelberg!! Check the webpages of the schools and think carefully in which scientific profile your interests fit best. Talk to potential supervisors in which school to apply!
Please include in your application a motivational statement why the research and educational program in the IMPRS fits your interests best.
We require two letters of recommendation. The links on which those have to be uploaded are sent to the writers of the letters only after your application is complete and submitted. Take this into account, the letters have to arrive before the end of the deadline, do not finish your application on the last day.
Please note the admission requirements for acceptance to the doctoral programme specified here.
