After completing a master's degree, good graduates can do a PhD.

You can apply for a PhD by personally speaking to one of the institute’s professors. You can find out more about their working and research groups here. In the Department of Geosciences, to which our Institute of Geophysics and Meteorology belongs together with the Geographical Institute and the Institute of Geology and Mineralogy, there is a graduate school in which the department's PhD  students are supervised. Details can be found at GSGS.

Further information on the formalities can be found on the PhD website of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Cologne.
