Course Level: Fellowships are available for undertaking PhD research projects.
Scholarship Provider: The Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School of Molecular & Cellular Biology (HBIGS) at Heidelberg University, Germany
Scholarship can be taken at: Germany
Eligibility: Students may apply to up to three advertised PhD positions within the deadlines set for the respective projects. Students applying to advertised PhD positions are expected to receive their final degree before the start of the respective PhD projects. The minimal requirement for admission into the Graduate School is a university degree from an internationally accredited university that would allow the applicant to enter a PhD program in biosciences in the country where the degree was awarded. Depending on the country, this may be a Masters, Licentiate or Diploma in Natural Sciences or equivalent. If your native language is not English, proof of an adequate command of spoken and written English is required for admission.
Scholarship Open for International Students: German or international applicants can apply for these PhD fellowships.
Scholarship Description: The Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School of Molecular and Cellular Biology (HBIGS) was founded in October 2007. The vision of the Graduate School is to attract the best and brightest doctoral researchers from around the world to pursue doctoral studies at Heidelberg University by offering excellent research opportunities and comprehensive academic and complementary training in a vibrant and stimulating scientific environment. The focus of the Graduate School on molecular and cellular biology takes into account that molecular and cellular biology provides the conceptual and technological foundation on which most other fields, sub-disciplines and specialized areas of life and biosciences rest – from structural biology to bioinformatics, from molecular medicine to biotechnology, and from immunology to systems biology. A higher qualification in molecular and cellular biology will, therefore, prepare early stage researchers for exciting and challenging careers in academia and in the public and private sector.
Number of award(s): Up to 13 PhD fellowships are offered.
Duration of award(s): These PhD Fellowships are offered for three-year.
What does it cover? PhD students will receive competitive fellowships of up to 1468,- EUR/month.
Selection Criteria: Not Known
Notification: Shortlisted applicants who applied for an advertised project will be notified and invited for interview in Heidelberg no later than two weeks after a deadline has been closed. The final decision will be made swiftly after the interviews.
How to Apply: Applications should be submitted online.
