The Research School offers a three-year graduate program in global biogeochemistry and related Earth system sciences with a special teaching program consisting of lectures, seminars and a three month external research visit.
The key elements to life such as carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen are continuously exchanged among land, ocean and atmosphere, processes known as global biogeochemical cycles. Research activities in the IMPRS are aimed at a fundamental understanding of these cycles, how they are interconnected, and how they can change with climate or human activity. Students will participate in ongoing research comprising field observations, method development, experiments, and numerical modeling. The students will have further opportunities to acquire valuable knowledge and abilities for their future scientific career.Applications from highly qualified and well-motivated students from all countries will be considered; prerequisite is a diploma or master of science degree in geophysical sciences, environmental sciences, biological sciences, physics, chemistry, computer sciences or related fields, including a corres-ponding thesis. Very good communication skills in English are mandatory.
Successful candidates will be offered a highly communicative scientific environment, a comprehensive mentoring program as well as a Ph.D. stipend for three years. The studies will start in October 2010.
The application procedure starts with an online registration on the IMPRS homepage: http://www.imprs-gbgc.de
The IMPRS is funded by the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science. Internationally renowned scientists from both, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry and the Friedrich Schiller University Jena collaborate at the Research School.
Jena - the German City of Science in 2008 - is a young and dynamic university town with innovative international research and industry and a rich cultural scene in an attractive landscape.Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
