PhD projects offered - IPP spring call 2017

The International PhD Programme includes groups at the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB), Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU), Mainz's University Medical Centre (UMC). Those offering a position are listed below. Note that not all groups involved in the IPP offer a position every call. 

The list below shows groups offering a PhD position in our spring call 2017.

More groups will join this call if the outcome of our winter call is known in mid February 2017. We will then update this website and inform registered students also by Email.

By registering you express interest to apply, and you ask referees to send a reference letter to us. In the application form (the link is sent when you register) you select from all IPP groups up to 5 recruiting groups in your field of interest. Do not select groups which are not listed on this page.
You can still modify or extend this selection if you are invited to our interview days and come to know the Group Leaders in person.
