International Helmholtz Graduate School for Plasma Physics
The International Helmholtz Graduate School for Plasma Physics is a graduate school for doctoral candidates at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Garching and Greifswald, and its partner universities, the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the University of Greifswald, Auburn University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Associated partners are the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP) in Greifswald and the Leibniz Computational Center (LRZ) in Garching.
HEPP aims to provide a coherent framework at IPP and the participating universities for qualifying a new generation of internationally competitive doctoral candidates in the field of plasma physics, fusion research, computational physics, surface science and plasma technology.
The intention of HEPP is to prepare the doctoral candidates for careers in a range of fusion related fields, i.e. for taking over leading positions in research, management and policy, technology development, or consulting and education. Graduate education in HEPP is structured, systematic and adapted to the individual needs of the doctoral candidates.
