Promotion of early career scientists

The Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics offers various opportunities for your qualification. As a student, doctoral candidate or post-doc, you can take part in interesting support programs for early career scientists and participate in current research projects as part of your training. LIAG also offers internships in the research areas of the institute for highschool or university students or to write your thesis at the institute. Excursions to the LIAG for school class can also be organized together with teachers to match the curriculum. 

PhD theses

At LIAG we work on a variety of research fields with a large range of methods (e.g. seismic, borehole geophysics, geothermal potential, geochronology, geophysical potential, petrophysics, geoelectrics). In collaboration with a university, PhD students can work in our research groups to obtain their PhD degree.

You can find open positions here.

Student projects

In co-operation with several universities, LIAG awards student theses in the form of student research projects, bachelor's and master's theses. This allows you to familiarise yourself with applied geophysics at a very early stage of your career and work on current research topics.

You are also welcome to contact us independently of the theses topics advertised below.


LIAG offers school and university students specialising in natural sciences or engineering the opportunity to carry out their compulsory internship with us.
