Welcome to our IMPRS Physics and Medicine!

The IMPRS Physics and Medicine (IMPRS-PM) at the Max-Planck-Zentrum für Physik und Medizin (MPZPM) is a highly innovative new graduate program established in January 2022. IMPRS-PM educates and trains a new generation of scientists with insight into both physics and medical research.

In collaboration with the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), we offer MSc stipends and PhD positions. The language of instruction and interaction of our structured graduate program is English. Knowledge of the German language is not required, but we also offer German language classes at MPL and FAU.

Applications from entering master’s students are processed in two rounds with deadlines on January 15th and May 31st for the academic year starting in the following October. Decisions are communicated by March 1st and July 1st, respectively.

Students with a master’s degree who are interested in pursuing a PhD within IMPRS can apply and start at any time during the year.

Our first cohort of PhD students was admitted in July 2022. The first group of master’s students will begin in October 2023.

Application deadline extended to June 7th!
