Internship Offers

Our student research internships last 2-3 months, during which you'll integrate into your hosting group's research activities, and join our greater Dresden research community! Although we call this the "summer" internship programme, it could happen anytime that suits both the successful candidate and their hosting group.

Successful candidates will receive a monthly stipend of 934 Euro to support living costs in Dresden. Additionally, the IMPRS will help arrange for travel, housing and visa concerns.
