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.

Group leaders who will offer IMPRS internships in 2018 are listed below.
