Administrative duties

       1) BCGS

 
I am co-spokesperson of the Bonn Cologne Graduate School, in which all Master and PhD studies in our department are organized. Among other things, it handles the recruitment of international students, a task formerly performed by the Bonn International Graduate School in Physics and Astronomy (BIGS-PA), which has been integrated into the BCGS. Until 2017 the BCGS is funded by the excellence initiative. Further details can be found at the BCGS home page .

2) MSc Selection committees

I am chairman of the committee in charge of selecting students who wish to obtain an MSc in Physics at Bonn university, as well as a member of the committee in charge of selecting students who wish to obtain an MSc in Astrophysics at Bonn university. Our department started these MSc courses from October 2006. The detailed syllabi can be found here . Briefly, both MSc courses run for two years. The first year is devoted to taking advanced classes, both in the classroom and in the lab, whereas the second year is essentially devoted to a research project, culminating in a Master thesis.
Application forms for international applicants can be found here .
Note: Highly qualified candidates may at the same time apply to join the honors branch of the Bonn Cologne Graduate School, which has also become operative in October 2006. Further information on this program may be found here .
