Hamburg is going to a have another Max Planck Institute, the Max Planck Society announced today in an English press release. The Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter emerges from the highly successful MPG Research Group for Structural Dynamics at the University of Hamburg. This resolution is subject to the approval of the Hamburg Parliament. Read all about the new Institute here: http://www.mpg.de/6645591/new_institute_Hamburg. The new Max Planck Institute will consist of five departments, four of them experimental and one with a theoretic orientation, along with an MPG Research Group. Provisionally, there will be about 120 permanent staff positions at the new Institute. Hamburg was the sole candidate site for the new Institute because of the long history of reseach at DESY and University of Hamburg, and because of access to high-performance light sources: in Germany, these are currently available only in Hamburg.

Last week I was asked by an American young woman if she could study in English at Hamburg Universities. I did some research and found a very helpful list of English language master and bachelor degree courses published by the Public Authority for Science and Research (Behörde für Wissenschaft und Forschung) in Hamburg. The list has a variety of University courses from Biomedical Engineering (Master Program at HAW) via Insurance Law as a Master Course at the Hamburg University to Technology Management and Engineering at the Northern Institute of Technology or Tibetan Studies at the University of Hamburg. More information about Universities that teach in English and the courses at the Universities and Schools, in the list of schools here.
