PhD projects offered - IPP winter call 2019/2020

The IPP winter call is open. You can register until 19 November 2019.

The International PhD Programme includes groups at the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB), Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU), and Mainz's University Medical Centre (UMC), as well as at the Technical University of Darmstadt (TUD). Openings for PhD projects as part of the Winter 2019/2020 call are listed below. Note that not all groups involved in the IPP offer a position in every call. 

If you are interested in applying for any of the projects listed below then please fill out our registration form. The referees you list will then receive a personalised link allowing them to upload your references directly and in confidence. You will also receive a link to your application form in which you can indicate up to 5 projects that are of interest to you. Do not select groups that are not listed below. If you are invited to our interview days, you will have the opportunity to modify or extend your group selection based on your interaction with the Group Leaders.
