Welcome to the IFU Graduate Program!
The IFU Graduate Program provides qualification and career development for early-career researchers at IMK-IFU, the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research, Atmospheric Environmental Research of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). IMK-IFU, also known as KIT’s Campus Alpin, is located in Garmisch-Partenkirchen at the foot of Mount Zugspitze (2962 m a.s.l.), some 350 km from KIT’s main campus. Our vision is to train new generations of outstanding young scientists to navigate successfully in collaborative and interdisciplinary climate change research.
We work in close cooperation with the Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists (KHYS) and its KHYS Postdoc Office, which are the central institutions for the promotion of junior researchers at KIT. Furthermore, we are embedded into the research program "Changing Earth - Sustaining our Future" in the Helmholtz research field "Earth and Environment" and thus into KIT's ATMOchange Activities and Helmholtz Activities.
