Duration
A course of study at the FMI leading to a PhD degree of the University of Basel typically lasts 4 years.

Supervision

The leader of the research group is the main supervisor. In addition, PhD students are supported by a Thesis Committee of university professors and experts chosen by the student.

Courses

As part of their education, graduate students are required to attend courses from the graduate teaching program at the University of Basel.

Compensation

The FMI provides financial support to graduate students in accordance with the scale of the Swiss National Science Foundation. Income is generous relative to international standards for PhD students.

Student life

The FMI has an active student body that organizes seminar series and career guidance events. FMI PhD students also participate in the FMI Annual Meeting to discuss science and hear presentations from postdocs, students and group leaders.

Basel is an important international center for biomedical research. Located right at the borders of France and Germany, FMI PhD students study in a multicultural environment with very good opportunities to start an international career.

Basel is also rich in culture and an excellent starting point to explore Switzerland and neighboring France and Germany.
