PhD Program at the International Max Planck Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology

The International Max Planck Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology (IMPRS-CMB) is an international graduate school.

Established over 15 years ago, the IMPRS-CMB is a joint PhD Program between the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund, the Technical University Dortmund, the Ruhr University Bochum and the University of Duisburg-Essen. All four institutes are located in the Ruhr Metropolitan Area of Germany, an extremely vibrant and culturally interconnected region of central Europe.

We are interested in the molecular, chemical and physical properties that characterize interactions between bio-molecules.

  • How do molecules interact?
  • When and where do interactions occur within a cell or an organism?
  • What is the molecular outcome of an interaction?
  • How can we modulate or control a specific interaction (also for therapeutic purposes)?
  • How do many interactions come together to form a dynamic and self-organized biochemical network?

To answer these and many other questions, we train a new generation of life scientists that are passionate about Biology, that are would like to understand the Chemistry at the basis of life and that are fascinated, like Physicist, by the dynamic behavior of living matter.

The IMPRS-CMB provides an amazing environment for young, talented and ambitious scientists to start a career in the field of life sciences.

As a graduate student, you will join a top-level research group and you will have the chance to carry out an exciting and novel project with access to state-of-the-art facilities and world class experts.

The goal of the graduate program is to support students in their projects by providing the tools for them to learn experimental methods, as well as rigorous scientific thinking and scientific communication.

The IMPRS-CMB recruits via international open calls twice a year (next application period opens in September 2018).
