FWF Doctoral Programme Atoms, Light, and Molecules (DK-ALM)

The Doctoral Programme (Doktoratskolleg) Atoms, Light, and Molecules, DK-ALM, is a collaborative programme that provides a research and training environment for excellent national and international students.

It is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and started in January 2016. The programme combines fore-front research in several scientific fields within the framework of atomic, molecular and optical physics with high-level education.

The doctoral programme is linked to the four Physics Institutes at the University of Innsbruck and to the Physics Research Center, one of the five Research Focal Points of the University.
