International Max Planck Research School Magdeburg
Welcome to the International Max Planck Research School Magdeburg!The major goal of this International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) is to provide excellent training and PhD research on the analysis, the design and the optimization in chemical and biochemical processes engineering.
The IMPRS Magdeburg offers young researchers a stimulating and challenging atmosphere for education and research in a highly international and interdisciplinary environment.
Based on their specific background students can select PhD topics focusing on mathematical and systems theoretical or applied aspects of modeling technical and biological processes at the forefront of current research.
Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities at the Max Planck Institute Magdeburg as well as to a broad selection of basic and advanced lectures and seminars for education and training.
Intensive supervision and guidance will be guaranteed by PhD advisory committees (PACs).
ReconstructionAt the moment we are about to reconstruct the IMPRS web pages. There will also be a new layout soon.
Call for ApplicationsThe IMPRS has started a new call for application all necessary information can be found on the application page.
IMPRS got a new name for the new founding period: IMPRS for Advanced Methods in Process and Systems Engineering
September 1st, 2013
The IMPRS for Analysis, Design and Optimization in Chemical and Biochemical Process Engineering got a new name. The name is now the IMPRS for Advanced Methods in Process and Systems Engineering or short IMPRS ProEng. Also the speaker of the school is changing, we thank Prof. Udo Reichl for the first 6 successful years of the IMPRS. The new speaker is Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern.
The 3rd IMPRS Summer School of the IMPRS was successfully carried out
September 10th, 2013
The IMPRS Summer School on Multiscale Modeling and Simulation has finished. We could welcome more than 50 participant. Furthermore, we like to thank all speakers for the success of our Summer School.

Announcement of the 3rd IMPRS Summer School
February 4th, 2013
The next IMPRS Summer School is taking place from September 2nd-6th 2013. It is the third time that we follow the IMPRS tradition to organize a Summer School. The this year's school is on Multiscale Modeling and Simulation. A more detailed program and the possibility for application will follow.
Graduates of the International Max Planck Research School Magdeburg honored
November 23rd, 2012
Two IMPRS students were honored this year by the Otto von Guericke University as the Best Doctoral Students in 2012 in their faculty. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Peschel was awarded the Faculty Prize of the Faculty of Process and Systems Engineering for his excellent PhD thesis on "Design of optimal chemical reactors based on the concept of elementary process functions". Also, Dr. rer. nat. Kanstantsin Pashkovich received the Faculty Prize of the Faculty of Mathematics for his outstanding PhD thesis "Extended Formulations for Combinatorial Polytopes".
Changes in the Application Procedure - Call for Applications
June 25th, 2012
It is not possible anymore to apply any time, instead there will be a call. The next call for applications will be in Spring 2013. Then in this place an online application form will be available. Then also the required documents (certificate of master, bachelor or diploma, English certificate, recommendation letters, statement of purpose, CV, possible publications, etc.) can be submitted online.
The IMPRS is part of the OvG Graduate School at the University of Magdeburg
