International Max Planck Research School for Organismal Biology

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Organismal Biology is a close cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology and the Department of Biology at the University of Konstanz. Its aim is to provide first-class training and education for outstanding doctoral students from all over the world in a stimulating research environment. This competitive doctoral program provides its fellows with an excellent starting platform for a successful career in the fields of animal behaviour, ecology, evolution, physiology, and neurobiology.

Our faculty is comprised of more than 30 leading researchers; our 64 PhD fellows come from 27 countries.

Besides their own research, the IMPRS fellows attend laboratory courses and workshops in relevant transferable skills like scientific writing and project management. Talks by invited speakers during our annual IMPRS symposium, student retreats, and conference participations complete the individually tailored curriculum. Program details can be found here.

In general, the PhD should be completed within three years. The official teaching language is English. German language classes are offered to students from abroad.
