Johannes Gutenberg University in the historic town of Mainz, Germany offers a two-year international research-oriented master program in physics or meteorology as well as dedicated PhD programs. The major tracks of study are related to the excellent research at JGU in the fields of quantum and atomic, hadron and nuclear, particle and astroparticle, and condensed matter physics. Major topics of study in meteorology cover the fields of atmospheric dynamics and modelling, atmospheric radiation, atmospheric chemistry and trace gas dynamics.
The 5 week Academy will acquaint the participants with the scientific contents and prerequisites of graduate studies in physics or meteorology at JGU. The program is taught in English and consists of introductory lectures, training of problem-solving skills and individual mentoring. In addition, the participants have the opportunity to work on an individual project within one of the JGU research groups. Participation in the academy can be a first step towards full graduate studies in physics or meteorology at JGU. Students with an outstanding Bachelor of Science degree (best 10%) can be considered for a PhD at the University (Fast-Track PhD).
