Internship Offers

A student research internship lasts 2-3 months and concludes with a written report and an oral presentation. The precise dates will be agreed individually with the hosting group. Successful candidates will receive a monthly allowance of 800 Euro to support travel, housing, and living costs. Guidance in arranging travel, housing and Visa will be provided, if required.

The list of group leaders offering IMPRS internships in 2019 will be continually updated over the coming weeks.
