Welcome to the MPIA students home page!

MPIA students performing the MPIA song (internal access only)

You have landed at the homepage of the Ph.D. and diploma students at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy. This website was created by the students at the institute with the aim to provide information on our scientific work, administrative and money issues, social life and internal issues. Our research at the institute encompasses star formation, extragalactic astronomy, infrared astronomy, theory and instrumentation. But we have a lot of fun too...


The MPIA's elected student representatives are Simon Bihr, Michael Maseda and Thales Gutcke. If you have any questions or comments simply write them. The last elections took place in June 2014.

The PhDnet is the community of the PhD students of all institutes in the Max Planck Society. Its goal is to broaden interdisciplinary exchange between the MPIs and to give the MPS students a voice for common concerns. The PhDnet organizes interdisciplinary workshops, soft-skill seminars, publishes Offspring, performs Surveys and tries to bring together as many Ph.D. representatives as possible in its Annual General Meeting. The spokesperson of the PhDnet for 2011 is Raoul Axinte (MPI for Chemistry, Mainz).
