The International PhD Programme includes groups at the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB), Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU), Mainz's University Medical Centre (UMC) and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P). All groups are conducting research relating to the programme's overarching theme of "Gene Regulation, Epigenetics and Genome Stability". Here, we give an overview of research topics and short biographies. Note that not all groups offer positions in every call. Available PhD projects in the current call are listed here.
