How to Apply
The main goal of the research school is to provide interdisciplinary training in molecular and
cellular life sciences to doctoral students in an environment of scientific excellence. During the
course of their studies, students are exposed to a broad field of scientific questions and methods
covering the areas of biochemistry, cell biology, molecular medicine, neurobiology and structural
biology. This general interdisciplinary training is combined with a substantial degree of
specialization taking place in the direct supervisor’s laboratory thereby providing both a broad and
an in depth training to doctoral students. Scientific training is complemented by a variety of training
opportunities including lecture series, seminars, elective courses and participation in international
conferences. In addition, a comprehensive training program in transferable skills prepares the
doctoral students for the challenges of a professional career in academia, industry or elsewhere.
