>> 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
>>   school:
>>    * 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/
>>   The closing date for applications for the program starting in September
>>   2008 is December 1, 2007. Please apply by using the IMPRS application
>>   form available online at http://www.imprs-astro.mpg.de/admission.html
>>   Thank you for your support.
>>    Dr. Werner Becker
