Student Projects

Student Projects

Our department is engaged the training of young astronomers at the levels of bachelor, master, and PhD studies, in collaboration with the neighbouring universities of Bonn and Cologne and other international partners (e.g., the University of Würzburg or the University of València) and collaborations.

Bachelor & Master

Research projects at the undergraduate level (bachelor and master) in the above mentioned topics are possible at the group.  Please contact Prof. Eduardo Ros about this possibility for potential topics.

PhD Projects

Doctoral studies are possible in the framework of the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS).  A list of available PhD projects and supervisors is shown below.  For more details, please check projects with code AZ at our IMPRS webpage.
