PhD positions @ IMPRS for Life Sciences Max Planck Research School for Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences (IMPRS-LS)
Description : The Munich based International Max Planck Research School for Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences (IMPRS-LS) has openings for PhD student positions in the international PhD program “Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences: from Biology to Medicine” IMPRS-LS is jointly conducted by the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology and the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry in cooperation with the Ludwig Maximilian University Munich and the Technical University Munich. The PhD program covers the areas of biochemistry, cell biology, molecular medicine, neurobiology and structural biology. The 3 to 4 year program, entirely taught in English, provides comprehensive scientific training in a superb and vibrant research environment with state of the art facilities and cutting edge research projects. Prospective students can choose one out of more than 45 challenging research projects offered by our faculty members. Although students specialize in a particular research topic, the interdisciplinary context of the program facilitates interactions with other research groups and fosters the ability of cross-frontier thinking. Laboratory work is supplemented by seminars, summer schools, elective courses, training in soft skills and participation in national or international conferences. Currently, more than 250 doctoral students from all over the world are working at the Max Planck Institutes and, together with numerous doctoral students from close by university laboratories, lay ground for a lively, open and dynamic international atmosphere. Highly qualified candidates with a deep commitment to basic and/or clinical research are invited to apply. Applicants should hold a MSc (or an equivalent degree) in biological sciences, biochemistry, biophysics, biotechnology, medicine or a related discipline. A one year preparatory program is available to a limited number of outstanding applicants with a Bachelor’s degree allowing a fast track path towards a doctoral degree. All students accepted to the program will be supported by fellowships covering living expenses and tuition. Candidates will be selected on a competitive basis. Deadline for application is January 15, 2009; selection will be completed by March 15; classes will commence October 1. Accepted candidates may start their research projects as early as April 2009.
