History of the IUP Bremen

The focus of our work in environmental physics is the investigation of the atmosphere, the cryosphere, and the oceans of the earth. Part of the IUP is the IFE (Institut für Fernerkundung) which was established to handle our longer-term satellite projects. In november 2003, the 10th anniversary of the institute was celebrated, and the inauguration of our new building at the same time.

Students in general physics have the possibility to specialize in environmental physics. A variety of courses is offered at the IUP, in cooperation with our colleagues from the Alfred-Wegener-Institut of Polar Research and Oceanography (AWI) in Bremerhaven, about 50 km from Bremen.

In environmental physics, our students have the possibility to get solid knowledge about the oceans, the atmosphere, and in terrestrial environmental research. In contrast to other german universities, the environmental physics in Bremen is fully integrated into the general physics. Our students many times have even been taking part in interesting worldwide expeditions !

Especially for international students, a Master of Science (M. Sc.) course with four semestres duration was established. All classes are in english.

More than 100 p.h.d. students and postdocs are working at the IUP. We have state-of-the art lab equipment, and high computational capacity, which is essential for the data processing of our satellite projects. In addition to an IBM EnterpriseServer (eServer P690-Regatta with 32 high-performance power CPUs) and a cluster of workstations, also personal computers (pc´s) are used.

Our laboratory equipment includes devices for gas cromatography and mass spectrometry. We also use optical- and mircrowave spectrometers, some of which are our own development and construction.

Many of our scientific projects are using external platforms like the research vessel "Polarstern", aircrafts, stratospheric balloons, and ground based stations all around the world, from the tropics to the poles. Most important tools for our work are the satellite experiments like SCIAMACHY, which was developed by IUP members.

In addition to the scientific working groups, we have special teams for the maintenance and administration of our computational devices, networks and data bases. Other teams are developing techincal innovations for our worldwide expeditions, and for laboratory use at the IUP.

Your Career:
All projects are executed in cooperation with our worldwide (and national) partner institutes, which makes it easy to get international contacts. Our graduates find open doors and interesting work worldwide in leading science or industry organisations. Have a look at vacant positions at the IUP here.
