Congratulations to Jan Chalabala, Barbara Grygiel, Lisa Ortmann, Martina Randulova-Rubesova, Koen van Kruining, and Valentin Walther on successfully defending their PhD theses.

Welcome to the website of the International Max Planck Research School for "Many-Particle Systems in Structured Environments", a graduate school funded by the Max Planck Society.

The school is a collaboration between several partner institutions in Dresden, Prague and Wroclaw offering PhD studentships in a variety of fields in atomic, molecular and laser physics, condensed matter physics and chemistry - primarily in theoretical and computational research - tied together by the common theme of understanding many-body systems with strong interactions. Applications, which are received biannually, are open to talented and motivated students regardless of nationality.

On these pages you may find further information about the PhD projects we offer, the investigators affiliated with the school and the varied opportunities made available to our students over the course of the PhD programme.
