The International Max Planck Research School for Computer Science (IMPRS-CS) is a graduate program jointly run by the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems and Saarland University.
The IMPRS-CS offers a PhD program upon successful completion of which students receive a Doctoral Degree in Computer Science from Saarland University. The program is open to students who hold or are about to receive a research-oriented Master's degree in Computer Science (or an equivalent degree). Successful candidates will typically have ranked at or near the top of their classes, have already engaged in research and published their results, and be highly proficient in written and spoken English.
Admitted students receive a support contract that covers all living expenses and tuition fees. They enjoy a research-oriented education with close supervision by world-renowned scientists in a competitive, yet collaborative, environment rich in interaction with other students, post-docs, and scientists.
