About PhD Program

PhD students are encouraged to apply to the Dresden International PhD Program (DIPP).

The program runs its own track in Computational Biology, inviting applicants from Computer Science, Computational Science, Applied Mathematics, and Physics.

ELBE Postdoc Program

Apart from postdoc openings in our Research Groups, we run the ELBE postdoctoral program that offers postdoc positions on a competitive basis. We seek strong postdoctoral candidates with backgrounds in Computational Biology, Theoretical Physics, Biophysics, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, or Cell and Developmental Biology and a strong interest to work in the cross-disciplinary environment of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) and the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI-PKS). To foster collaborations, postdocs are generally affiliated with two Principal Investigators of different disciplines. The appointment is typically for two years with the possibility of a one-year extension.

To apply, please fill the online application form and upload a single pdf file containing.

  • a cover letter,
  • CV,
  • publication list,
  • a summary of previous research (max. 1 page) and
  • a concisely worded research project proposal (1-2 pages), preferably oriented towards the mission and interests of the center.

Please also arrange for two confidential letters of recommendation to be
submitted online.

Applications are considered by a scientific committee, which meets every 6 months. The next application deadline is August 20, 2015. Applicants will be informed of the outcome soon after the committee meeting. Successful candidates should take up their positions within four months of notification.
