Scholarship Description: International PhD Programme on the “Dynamics of Gene Regulation, Epigenetics and DNA Damage Response” gives talented and enthusiastic students the opportunity to undertake PhD research at the cutting edge of modern biology. Groups cover a broad range of expertise and include leading biochemists, geneticists, cell and developmental biologists who study the molecular mechanisms of embryonic development, ageing and disease; bioinformaticians and systems biologists who analyse high-throughput datasets and model regulatory gene networks; and applied physicists who develop ground breaking super-resolution microscopes. This range of expertise and the open and vibrant atmosphere within the Programme encourages multidisciplinary collaborations and innovative research. Moreover, a range of scientific and social events are organised to ensure high levels of exchange and collaboration between the participating groups. The Programme is coordinated by the Institute of Molecular Biology in Mainz, Germany, and participating groups are located at the: Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB), Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU), University Medical Center (UMC) and Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P).
Duration of award(s): Positions will be available up to three years.
