University of Heidelberg

The Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School of Molecular and Cellular Biology (HBIGS)


The HBIGS International PhD Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology Heidelberg offers training and excellent research opportunities for outstanding doctoral researchers from Germany and abroad in a vibrant and stimulating scientific environment.

The focus of the Graduate School on molecular and cellular biology takes into account that molecular and cellular biology provides the conceptual and technological foundation on which most other fields, sub-disciplines and specialized areas of life and biosciences rest - from structural biology to bioinformatics, from molecular medicine to biotechnology, and from immunology to systems biology. A higher qualification in molecular and cellular biology will, therefore, prepare graduates for leading positions in all areas where in-depth knowledge of biological processes is required - be it in academia, industry or the public sector.

Up to 18 three-year HBIGS PhD Fellowships (1,468 Euro per month; tax-free) available

Application deadline: 31 March 2014
Interview date: 8/9 May or 5/6 Jun 2014
Start of PhD project: 1 Jun to 1 Sep 2014

The call is closed.
