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

Physicists working with researcher Oriol Romero-Isart devised a new simple scheme to theoretically generate arbitrarily short and focused electromagnetic fields. This new tool could be used for precise sensing and in microscopy.
Microwaves, heat radiation, light and X-radiation are examples for electromagnetic waves. Many applications require to focus the electromagnetic fields to...
Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
