iPROGRESS - Internship Program for Young Research Scientists

from Germany and the countries of HAP-associated partners - Argentina, France, The Netherlands, Russia, USA - to work in one of the HAP-related experiments.

 

The Helmholtz Alliance for Astroparticle Physics (HAP) offered scholarships for young researchers (master and PhD students according to the German university system or equivalent degree) to gain international experience in the field of astroparticle physics.

 

Young scientists from abroad could apply for a research visit at a German institution and scientists affiliated in Germany for a research visit at an institution in Argentina, France, The Netherlands, Russia, or USA where at least the host institution, see also, for the visit is either a HAP member institution, a HAP associated partner or an official collaborator of one of the HAP-related experiments. At the bottom of this page can be found the list of previous iPROGRESS participants.

 

Applicants should have completed at least 3 years or were master students of a university, or were PhD students or had an equivalent degree. The period of visit was up to 2 months for a master student and up to 1 month for a PhD student. The scholarship amounted to 650.- € per month for a master and to 1,000.- € per month for a PhD student, plus a lump sum for travel expenditure of 400.- €, or was at least in accordance with the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) rules.

 

Applications consisted of a CV together with a project description for the visit coordinated between the candidate, his/her supervisor, and the contact person at the host institute. All documents should be written in English by the candidate. Prerequisite for an application was good spoken English by the applicant. Applications could be submitted at any time and the program was offered until end of June 2016.

 

The applications was submitted (preferably electronically) to the administration of HAP:
