The International Max Planck Research School on Advanced Photon Science (IMPRS-APS) is opening new PhD positions in Advanced Photon Science. IMPRS-APS offers young researchers a unique combination of education and training opportunities in the physics and technology of photon sources and their advanced application in physics, chemistry, biology and medicine.

About the program:
  • The IMPRS-APS program offers a structured framework within which the students are not only supported in performing excellent research, but also in their education in the field of photonics and related subjects (such as quantum optics, high-field physics, laser physics, strong-field, attosecond physics and medical physics).
  • The program also includes interdisciplinary training (soft skills), contact with industry and is embedded in an international and interdisciplinary environment with many opportunities for exchange.


  • Applicants must have a Master’s degree (or equivalent) before they will start the PhD program.
  • All PhD positions are funded and there are no tuition fees.
