German and International students can apply for this scholarship. The tenure of PhD research is 3-4 years. The topics of PhD projects represent a broad spectrum (Immunology, Infection, Molecular Biology, (Hematology) & Oncology, Biochemistry, Structural Biology, Genetics, Stem Cell Research, Cell Biology etc). Applications should be sent online by April 1, 2013.
Study Subject(s): The scholarship is provided for PhD research in Molecular Medicine.
Course Level: This scholarship is for pursuing PhD level.
Scholarship Provider: Hannover Medical School
Scholarship can be taken at: Germany
Eligibility: -This PhD study course is designed for students with an M.Sc. or equivalent degree in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology or Molecular Biology.
-Students with medical background.
-International MD or MBBS students are very welcome to apply to our three PhD programs. We require however at least 6 months of experimental research experience.
1.) First PhD (fulltime 3-4 years): You join one of our three PhD programs of HBRS, work on an experimental PhD research project and achieve the PhD degree directly after your Staatsexamen. Afterwards you decide if you want to stay in research completely or want to combine a clinical training with research.
2.) At first parts of clinical training (Facharzt), then PhD: Quite a few students start with their clinical training after Staatsexamen for 1-3 years. Then they interrupt their training (after e.g. the common trunk, first diagnostic training), then do their PhD for 3-4 years (fulltime) and after that continue their clinical training. The advantage of this model is that even during full-time PhD you are able to do “Dienste” from time to time in order to show your face in the clinics or diagnostic labs, and get some credits for “Facharztweiterbildung”.
3.) New model (concept), Rotation: Applicants either start with the clinical training or the PhD research work and then within 5-6 years do a combined training. PhD research should however be at least 2 years full-time in one go.
-Applicants will be awarded a PhD degree after 3-4 years. They are welcome to continue their career here in research afterwards. If they want to start a clinical career after PhD in Germany, this is not so easy, depending also on the country of origin. We are most happy to give advice though.
Scholarship Open for Students of Following Countries: The German and International students can apply for this scholarship.
