The Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics offers various possibilities for further education. You can carry out a school or study practical in one of the research sections of our institute. Similarly, undergraduates and postgraduates, and post-doctoral students can take part in an interesting support programme for young scientists, or work at LIAG as part of their own research.

Student practicals

Together with university partners, we offer student practicals in the fields of activity in which LIAG is engaged. In this way you can learn applied geophysics at an early stage in your career and work on the latest issues.

PhDs

At LIAG we work on a variety of research fields with a large range of methods (e.g. seismics, borehole geophysics, geothermal potential, geochronology, geophysical potential, rock physics, geoelectrics). Together with universities, PhD students can work in our research groups to obtain their degree.
