International PhD Programme

The IPP winter call 2020/21 is open.

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.

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

Our groups cover a broad range of expertise in biochemistry, genetics, cell and developmental biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, and applied physics. For a nice overview browse through our research topics. Techniques you can study with us include CRISPR/Cas, next-generation sequencing, modeling of gene networks, mass spectrometry or super-resolution microscopy. Our scientific and social events and the open and vibrant atmosphere in the IPP ensure high levels of exchange and collaboration between the participating groups.

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