The International Max Planck Research School – Molecular Biomedicine (IMPRS-MBM) and the Cells in Motion Excellence Cluster (CiM) offer 16 PhD Fellowships in Life and Natural Sciences. Applications are invited for highly qualified and motivated students of any nationality from biological sciences, chemistry, mathematics, computer sciences and physics. The program offers excellent scientific and transferable skills training, a competitive tax-free fellowship and support with administrative matters, accommodation, visas etc. There are no tuition fees. The last date to apply is 15 April 2015. 
Study Subject(s): Fellowships are awarded in the following research areas: Cell and Molecular and Biology, Developmental and Stem Cell Biology Vascular Biology, Immunology Microbiology, Neurobiology, In vivo Imaging, High Resolution Optical Imaging, Biophysics, Chemical Biology Label Chemistry, Mathematical Modelling and more.
Course Level: Fellowships are available for pursuing PhD programme at the International Max Planck Research School – Molecular Biomedicine (IMPRS-MBM) and the Cells in Motion Excellence Cluster (CiM)
Scholarship Provider: The University of Münster and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine
Eligibility:
-Applicants must hold a Master’s degree, or equivalent (e.g. German Diploma), in life or natural sciences (e.g. biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, physics, chemistry, pharmacy or related fields), in mathematics or computer sciences. Applicants with a state examination in pharmacy can be admitted to work on pharmaceutical/chemical projects. The date of award of the Master’s (diploma, state examination) degree must not be more than 4 years ago (i.e. 4 years before the above-mentioned application deadline).
