The young scientists accepted into IMPRS-ICNS will receive a doctoral contract to support them during their PhD. Candidates are selected in a highly competitive procedure. The language of the IMPRS-STNS is English.


IMPRS-STNS is a dynamic school that tailors the teaching to each doctoral student individually. In addition to their research projects, IMPRS-STNS graduates are given the opportunity to take part in a complementary training programme. These activities include: Seminars, lectures within the field of science and technology of nano-systems, Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC), mentoring, complementary skills training, career counselling, German language courses, yearly retreats, summer/ winter schools, secondments, workshops, events organized by PhD candidates.


  • Physicist, engineer or materials scientist, with a Master’s degree
