International Max Planck Research School "Chemical Communication in Ecological Systems"

International Max Planck Research School "Chemical Communication in Ecological Systems"

We are an International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) that is jointly organized by the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology (MPI-CE) and the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena (FSU). The main focus of our school is the use of molecular, analytical and neurobiological techniques to explore chemical communication in nature. We study communication between plants, animals, microbes and their environment, as well as its ecology and evolution.

Admission to the school is possible either through the annual recruitment or a written application to the school committee. Each year, up to five IMPRS doctoral positions are awarded following a competitive, worldwide call for applications. Doctoral researchers participate in a 3-year structured program that includes lectures, practical courses, outreach activities, and an annual symposium. All courses are held in English. The doctoral degree is granted by the Friedrich Schiller University.
