For Prospective PhD Students

We currently do not have funded positions available for prospective graduate students. Still, we are always looking forward to externally funded candidates, or candidates willing to apply for external funding together with our lab.

Also, Caesar is part of the IMPRS-AGE and the IMPRS-BB, both very good international Max Planck Research Schools of the Max Planck Society, which offer excellent students the opportunity for a fully-funded PhD fellowship and the additional participation in regular seminars, interdisciplinary courses as well as practical career development opportunities. New classes start each spring, and can be applied for via the respective webpages (deadlines for applications are around late autumn).

How should you apply? Please send your application, including a concise CV, two letters of reference, and a short letter of motivation, to Elmar Behrmann (please use pdf format for all files and do not exceed 5 Mb total).

For candidates planning to apply for external funding together with our lab, please also send a short description of the work you would be interested in doing.

Last but not least: if we’ve met somewhere, e.g. on a conference, please feel free to remind me. I tend to be horrible when it comes to remembering names.
