International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Evolutionary Biology

The IMPRS Evolbio is an international graduate school dedicated to highest level research and training in all areas of contemporary Evolutionary Biology.

The graduate school is embedded in the thriving research environment and the beautiful landscape of Northern Germany, close to the shores of the Baltic Sea.

The Max-Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology is located in Plön, in the middle of a lake district, halfway between the Universities of Kiel and Lübeck. With its history in limnological and ecological research, it represents one of the longest established research institutions of the Max-Planck Society. Since 2007 it has successfully shifted its focus to Evolutionary Biology, with major recruitments and investments in this field. It covers three major reserach areas, Evolutionary Ecology, Evolutionary Genetics and Evolutionary Theory.

The University of Kiel has been established in 1665. It has currently over 24,000 inscribed students in eight faculties. Some 1,800 foreign students from all the world's continents are currently enrolled at Kiel University. Two Excellence Clusters are situated at Kiel University,  Kiel marine sciences ("The Future Ocean") and Kiel Life Science ("Inflammation at Interfaces").

The GEOMAR - Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research, also located in Kiel, is dedicated to investigate the physical, chemical, biological, and geological processes in the ocean and their interaction with the seafloor and the atmosphere.
