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.

The Programme is coordinated by the Institute of Molecular Biology - a recently founded centre of excellence in the life sciences. Participating groups are located at the:

  • Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB)
  • Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU)
  • University Medical Centre (UMC)

This programme thus provides an excellent opportunity to interact closely with a number of top scientists during the course of your study.

Core funding for the International PhD Programme comes from IMB, Johannes Gutenberg University and its University Medical Center.
