Call for applications: IMPRS PhD Positions in Solar System Science

in Göttingen, Germany / Deadline 1 November 2022

 The International Max Planck Research School for Solar System Science

at the University of Göttingen in Germany (Solar System School)

offers a research-oriented doctoral programme in Solar system science.

The Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) offers PhD

projects in three main areas: « Sun and Heliosphere », « Solar and Stellar

Interiors » and « Planetary Science ».

 Solar System School students collaborate with leading scientists in

these fields and graduates are awarded a doctoral degree from the

University of Göttingen or the Technical University Braunschweig.

 The Solar System School is open to students from all countries and

offers an international three-year PhD programme in an exceptional

research environment with state-of-the-art facilities on the Göttingen

Campus. Successful applicants will be offered a three-year doctoral

support contract as well as post-doc wrap-up funding.

 The language of the structured graduate program is English, with

complimentary German language courses offered (optional). The program

includes an inspiring curriculum of scientific lectures and seminars as

well as advanced training workshops and provides relocation costs and

travel funds to attend international conferences.

 Applicants to the Solar System School should have a keen interest in

Solar system science and a record of academic excellence. They must

have, or must be about to obtain, an M.Sc. degree or equivalent in

physics, chemistry, geosciences or a related field, including a written

Masters thesis, and must document a good command of the English


 * Applicants can register immediately at the online application portal.

* Applications should be submitted between September 1 and November 1.

* The School will contact the referees named by the candidate upon

submission of the application, and will ask referees to submit their

letters through the online portal no later than November 10.

 3. Laboratory Astrophysics Winter School 2023 announcement


Dear all,

 Following the last minute cancellation of the winter school on « Laboratory Astrophysics :tracking the evolution of cosmic matter towards molecular complexity » initially scheduled in 2022,  we are pleased to confirm  that a new session  will be held in 2023.

 This session will take place at “Les Houches School of Physics”, located in the Chamonix valley in the French Alps in February 05-10 2023.  We would like to inform you that few slots are still available and opened for registration. Registrations will be closed on November 4th. Please check the web site for details.

 This school is intended for a broad audience working in the field of astrochemistry. It focuses on advanced techniques used to produce, analyze and investigate the properties and the evolution of extraterrestrial analogs in the laboratory, dedicated to improve our understanding of the origin and evolution of complex molecular matter observed in space. During the school, interactive sessions with invited teachers will be organized and all participants are encouraged to present their work during poster sessions.

 We look forward to see you there,

 The organizing committee: Jean-Hugues Fillion, Ludovic Biennier, Grégoire Danger and Aude Simon


 Le prochain Atelier CNES « Exobiologie : des missions spatiales aux expériences de laboratoire » aura lieu le 15 novembre 2022 salle de l’Espace, au CNES.

 La Covid nous a empêchés de nous réunir depuis deux années pour notre atelier d’une journée au CNES portant sur les missions spatiales et l’Exobiologie.

 Avec la même équipe (Fabien Borget, Grégoire Danger, Jean-Claude Guillemin et Yann Trolez) nous souhaitons organiser ce nouvel atelier le 15 novembre 2022. Il portera sur « Exobiologie : des missions spatiales aux expériences de laboratoire » et associera comme nous l’avions fait dans le passé des expériences de laboratoire associées à des missions spatiales ou à une meilleure compréhension de la chimie prébiotique. Les missions d’Hayabusa 2 (achevée) et Dragonfly (projet) seront particulièrement discutées. Etablir des relations entre les expérimentateurs de chimie, de spectroscopie et ceux qui se sont engagés dans l’analyse des résultats des missions spatiales ou des expériences effectuées à partir de la Terre nous semble toujours une démarche évidente pour globalement progresser dans la thématique.

 Entre les interventions des temps de discussions sont aussi prévues autour d’un café ou sous la forme d’une petite table ronde.

 L’inscription est gratuite mais obligatoire.

 Nous espérons vous voir nombreux à cette réunion

 Jean-Claude Guillemin, Fabien Borget, Grégoire Danger et Yann Trolez
