In cooperation with the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry houses a unique and flexible research program that grants German and foreign students a broad selection of learning opportunities while still maintaining a research focus. The International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles (IMPRS-gBGC) offers a PhD program specializing in global biogeochemistry and related Earth System sciences. The overall research and teaching focuses on:
- Improved understanding of biogeochemical processes with an emphasis on terrestrial ecosystems [more...]
- Development of observational techniques to monitor and assess biogeochemical feedbacks in the earth system [more...]
- Theory and model development for improving the representation of biogeochemical processes in comprehensive earth system models [more...]
We accept applications to the IMPRS-gBGC twice a year.
