PhD programme

Offering a world-class international training environment, the school engages highly qualified and motivated graduate students at the forefront of research in multimessenger astronomy. PhD students will work with world-leading scientists and benefit from their complementary expertise in theory and experiments involving the various messengers.

Collaboration between students and researchers at the partner institutions is facilitated through a lively exchange program including long-term exchange visits. The professional training of students includes data science as a supporting component of the school. Annual meetings of students and PIs are foreseen. Furthermore, the school offers a number of individual measures to promote career development.

Depending on the primary location (Germany or Israel), the PhD will be earned either at Humboldt-University Berlin, at the University of Potsdam, or at the Weizmann Institute of Science (for a list of prospective supervisors see partners).
