Position Description

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) “From Molecules to Organisms” provides excellent interdisciplinary training across the disciplines of structural, molecular, cellular and developmental biology as well as bioinformatics, genomics and evolutionary biology.
We train the next generation of scientists to study complex biological processes that cannot be adequately understood within the limits of a single discipline.

IMPRS PhD students tackle research projects bridging the gap from molecules to living organisms. Transcending the boundaries of traditional life science disciplines, methodologies and scientific approaches from different fields are combined to address topics inaccessible by isolated research areas.
Our faculty members provide project supervision, plus expertise and infrastructure across the following traditionally separate fields:

• Biophysics
• Biochemistry & structural biology
• Bioinformatics & computational biology
• Molecular & cellular biology
• Developmental biology & genetics
• Genomics & proteomics
• Microbiology and microbiome science
• Evolutionary biology & ecology

We offer
• Fully-funded PhD positions
• Cutting-edge research projects and excellent facilities
• Tailored support from a thesis advisory committee
• Core and optional development opportunities to improve your scientific and transferable skills
• Multicultural environment with English as the working language
