The International Max Planck Research School on Earth System Modelling (IMPRS-ESM) was established in 2002. The IMPRS-ESM offers the opportunity for multi- and interdisciplinary doctoral studies in the comprehensive field of climate research by means of numerical modelling. The main scientific questions addressed are related to the integral Earth system including the human dimension.
The doctoral degrees Dr. rer. nat. and Dr. rer. pol. will be awarded by the enrolling University according to its standard rules, after acceptance of the doctoral thesis and a successful defense. This university will usually be the University of Hamburg. The students have the choice of doing their doctoral exam either at a German university or at their home university. The successful participation in the demanding program of the IMPRS-ESM will be awarded with an IMPRS certificate supplementing the doctoral degree.
Questions addressed are for instance:
The IMPRS-ESM has been founded to address these issues. The IMPRS-ESM will involve the participation of a team of professors and students belonging to various institutions and disciplines who will work together towards the development of a hierarchy of integrated earth system models. The students are working from different disciplinary perspectives around a unified concept of integrated Earth system models. The students are requested to integrate their respective work into a coherent educational and scientific framework. This purpose is reached through a close cooperation between all participating partners.
