International PhD Programme

Our International PhD Programme (IPP) gives talented and enthusiastic students the opportunity to undertake PhD research at the cutting edge of modern biology. Projects within the Programme address key questions related to the overarching theme of Gene Regulation, Epigenetics & Genome Stability.

Our groups cover a broad range of expertise in biochemistry, genetics, cell and developmental biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, and applied physics. Techniques you can study with us include CRISPR/Cas, NGS, modeling of gene networks, mass spectrometry or super-resolution microscopy. The scientific and social events and the open and vibrant atmosphere in the Programme ensure high levels of exchange and collaboration between the participating groups.

The Programme is coordinated by the Institute of Molecular Biology - a recently founded centre of excellence in the life sciences. Participating groups are located at the:

This programme thus provides an excellent opportunity to interact closely with a number of top scientists during the course of your study.

Please find here a list of our 46 IPP Groups.

Core funding for the International PhD Programme comes from IMB, Johannes Gutenberg University and its University Medical Center.
