The group consists of 8 academics and 20 postgraduate students with research interests covering Solar System and Space Science, the Interstellar Medium, Star Formation, Galactic Structure, Astrochemistry and Astrobiology.
There are four projects that are being offered on a competitive application process:
The school is organized for early-career scientists and will take place on September 4 – 8.
It will focus on the most relevant aspects of galaxy evolution addressed by JWST, from nearby to the most distant galaxies. JWST revealed surprises from its first images and is already revolutionizing many fields of astrophysics.
The school will give the participants an overview of what we have learned about galaxy evolution in the first year of JWST observations, the emerging challenges, and the opportunity to work with JWST data guided by world-renowned experts.
The topics include an overview of JWST, the physics of nearby galaxies, the role of AGN feedback, the cosmic noon, and the high-z Universe. The lectures will be accompanied by hands-on sessions and talks highlighting recent scientific results.
Invited lecturers are:
Steve Finkelstein (Univ. Texas Austin) Adam Leroy (Ohio State Univ.) Nora Lützgendorf (ESA) Alice Shapley (UCLA) Andrey Vayner (Johns Hopkins Univ.)
Hands-on session tutors are: James Davies (MPIA) Oleg Egorov (ARI)
The school SOC is: E.Banados (MPIA), L.Boogaard (MPIA), F.Davies (MPIA), A.de Graaff (MPIA), I.Momcheva (MPIA), N.Neumayer (MPIA), D.Wylezalek (ZAH)
Recently, the Earth-Life Science Institute (ELSI) launched an integrated 5-year Masters-PhD course in Earth-Life Sciences. The course aims to train the next generation of students to contribute to astrobiology and related fields, and the next round of IGP(C) applications for international students to enter the program in September 2023 will open soon

Any student preparing a thesis in Earth and Universe Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Life Sciences, Bioinformatics or History / Philosophy of Sciences.
Students wishing to acquire an interdisciplinary training in astrobiology to complete their initial training and to be able to address questions related to the origins of life on Earth and beyond, its evolution and its distribution in the Universe.
The school is also open to any young researchers interested in astrobiology
The RED’23 / Astrobiology Introductory Course program is complementary to the RED’22 program, however it is not necessary to have attended in 2022 to participate in this new school.
Lectures will be held in English.
Registrations are open until January 31, 2023. Some grants to participate are available, more about it on the website.

After the success of last year’s first edition, the European Astrobiology Institute (EAI) is back for the academic year 2022 – 2023 with the EAI Academy!
A series of 17 didactic talks and discussions by experts in the field, the seminars will once again be offered for free and will be streamed online via zoomevery two weeks on Wednesday from 3:00 to 4:00 PM CET.
The EAI Academy will provide a framework to meet online with the European astrobiology community and acquire interdisciplinary knowledge through a series of seminars given by experts in these fields. Each session will include a 30-40 minute didactic talk followed by about 20 minutes of questions and answers.
The sessions will be hosted by the Center for Astrobiology (CAB), who will issue a certificate of participation to those who attend at least 10 seminars (remember to add your name and affiliation to the chat in order to be eligible for the certificate!).
