Thesis Projects

The Leibniz Graduate School for Quantitative Spectroscopy in Astrophysics hosts eight part-time postions for doctoral students. The topics of the doctoral theses along with the respective thesis advisors are listed below. The Leibniz Graduate School is embedded in a Structured Doctoral Training Program in Astrophysics – a common and lasting framework for the supervision and training of doctorate students in astronomy and astrophysics at the University of Potsdam (UP).
