Tags: Life Sciences | health sciences | Germany | PhD | Biology


CiM-IMPRS is a joint graduate program of the International Max Planck Research School IMPRS-Molecular Biomedicine and the Graduate School of the Cells in Motion Interfaculty Centre (CiM) at the University of Münster. The program is jointly run by the University of Münster and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine.

The Ph.D.program offers excellent research and teaching in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences with a strong emphasis on Imaging. The progam is open to graduates of the biological sciences, chemistry, mathematics, computer sciences and physics.

Who?

  • Applicants must hold a Master's degree, or equivalent (e.g. German Diploma), in life or natural sciences (e.g. biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, physics, chemistry, pharmacy or related fields), in mathematics or computer sciences. Applicants with a state examination in pharmacy can be admitted to work on pharmaceutical/chemical projects. Medical students cannot be admitted. The date of award of the Master's (or diploma, state examination) degree must not be more than 4 years ago (i.e. 4 years before the above-mentioned application deadline).
  • Applications are also welcome, if the required degree has not yet been awarded by the time of application. However, it has to be awarded before positions commence in October.

Please note: Although an English proficiency test (TOEFL, IELTS) is not required it is very important that you CAN communicate well enough in spoken and written English. Knowledge of the German language is not required.
