INTERNATIONAL PHD PROGRAMME
Our International PhD Programme (IPP) gives talented and enthusiastic students the opportunity to undertake PhD research at the cutting edge of modern biology. Projects within the Programme address key questions related to the overarching theme of Gene Regulation, Epigenetics & Genome Stability.
Our groups cover a broad range of expertise in biochemistry, genetics, cell and developmental biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, and applied physics. Techniques you can study with us include CRISPR/Cas, NGS, modeling of gene networks, mass spectrometry or super-resolution microscopy. Scientific and social events and the open and vibrant atmosphere in the Programme ensure high levels of exchange and collaboration between the participating groups.
