PhD student positions at the IMPRS for Molecular Life Sciences in Munich, Germany

The International Max Planck Research School for Molecular Life Sciences: From Biological Structures to Neural Circuits (IMPRS-LS) is a PhD program that brings together two renowned Munich based Max Planck Institutes as well as two leading partner-universities, the LMU and TUM, to deliver first class training for the world‘s most promising young scientists.

Our students and their supervisors strive to uncover molecular mechanisms regulating biological processes, analyze the resulting complex biological systems and decipher the intricate network of neural circuits leading to corresponding behavioral responses.

More than 60 distinguished group leaders actively participate in the PhD program and offer challenging and cutting-edge PhD projects in the following areas:
· Biophysics & Bioimaging
· Computational & Systems Biology
· Gene Regulation & DNA Biology
· Circuit Neuroscience & Neurodegeneration
· Protein Structure & Protein Folding
· Signaling & Immunology

Qualified candidates are invited NOW to apply for the selection 2017/2018. Deadline for application is November 15th, 2017.

All students accepted to the program will receive a generous PhD fellowship covering tuition and living expenses.
