>> Dear Colleagues,
>> The International Max-Planck Research School on Astrophysics (IMPRS)
>> is soliciting applications for its PhD program. Located in the
>> beautiful Munich-Garching area in southern Bavaria (Germany), the
>> school offers a unique environment for graduate students due to the
>> presence of four internationally renowned institutes which form the
>> * The Max-Planck Institute for extraterrestrial Physics (MPE)
>> * The Observatory of the University of Munich (LMU/USM)
>> * The Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics (MPA)
>> * The European Southern Observatory (ESO)
>> In addition, Astro-particle physics groups at the Technical University
>> of Munich are participating as associated partners.
>> IMPRS offers a highly competitive PhD program, including lectures,
>> seminars, and a research project supervised by scientists at one of the
>> participating institutions. Since June 2004, the IMPRS on Astrophysics
>> at the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich is supported by the European
>> Commission and is a Marie-Curie early stage training site. Course language
>> is English. Students have access to ground and spaced based observatories and
>> instrumentation operated by the participating institutes as well as
>> supercomputers for advanced numerical simulations and theoretical studies.
>> Successful completion of the IMPRS program will be honored with an IMPRS
>> certificate which supplements the doctoral degree (PhD) document awarded
>> by the Ludwig-Maximilians University (or another university to be agreed
>> upon before enrollment).
>> Applications for the program are open to students from all countries.
>> More details on the IMPRS program and the admission requirements can be
>> found at the IMPRS website http://www.imprs-astro.mpg.de/
