As an IPP student, your PhD research will be conducted within the lab of one of the participating groups. The Group Leader in whose lab you are based will act as your mentor and provide advice and guidance to ensure that you receive training in both the scientific skills and the creative and critical thinking abilities that you will need for your research and personal development as a scientist.
In addition to supervision by your Group Leader, you will meet regularly with a Thesis Advisory Committee of leading scientists who will be there to support and advise you in your research. This provides an excellent opportunity for students to interact closely with a number of top scientists during the course of their study.
All our PhD students receive generous, fully funded fellowships for a period of three years with the possibility for extension.
More than 110 students from 24 different countries are admitted to the IPP.
