All students selected and admitted to the IMPRS-QST through our yearly application process automatically become IMPRS members. Also, students starting their PhD at one of our associated research groups are welcome to join the graduate school. 

Apart from the source of funding, which might imply slightly different conditions, there is no distinction between the IMPRS-QST members. The guidelines and curriculum requirements apply for all students and they all have equal access to the program's benefits and offers.

If you are interested in becoming a member, get in touch with the IMPRS coordination to receive more information about the program and the formalities to complete.


The IMPRS-QST offers an extraordinary framework and unique training opportunities for graduate students. As IMPRS member, you will be part of a lively community of graduate students and have access to a wide variety of scientific workshops, professional skills courses and social activities that foster learning and networking.

As part of our supervision concept, in addition to ongoing support from your primary advisor, you will benefit from regular interaction with your Thesis Advisory Board.

IMPRS-QST students are supported throughout their doctorate by the coordination office as well as the PhD representatives and fellow students.
