FMI INTERNATIONAL Ph.D. PROGRAM

Applications are invited for internally funded Ph.D. student fellowships in
the Friedrich Miescher Institute (FMI) Basel, Switzerland.

FMI is a foundation sponsored by Novartis devoted to basic research in
biological and biomedical sciences, offering excellent research facilities
in an international and competitive environment. Students are enrolled at
the University of Basel and benefit from a graduate-level teaching program
taught by the FMI and the University.

Basel is a major international center for research in biology with
outstanding academic institutions, including the University of Basel, and
comprising the Biocenter and the Department of Integrative Biology the Basel
Institute of Immunology and the FMI. Basel is also the headquarters and
major research center of the leading Science companies, Novartis and Roche.
