6 Fellowships

3-year Ph.D. programme starting spring 2010


The University of Cologne has a long-standing tradition and world-wide
reputation of top-level molecular biological research. Beginning in spring
2010 the Research School in Biology „From embryo to old age: the cell
biology and genetics of health and disease“ will be offering a high-level
Ph.D. programme for students with excellent qualifications. The
participating research groups use today's  microbial, plant and animal model
systems to investigate cell biological and genetic mechanisms whose
perturbation during the life cycle of an organism results in disease.

The three-year programme starts with a six-month rotation and course period,
followed by a PhD project in one of the participating groups. Seminars and
training courses complement the research work. Comprehensive support is
provided throughout the programme. The programme language is English.
Accepted students get a laptop computer and 500 EUR to get started in
Cologne. No tuition fees apply. 


Six competitive three-year fellowships (initially 1000 EUR, then 1300 EUR
per month) are available. 

We invite you to apply to the IGSDHD in Cologne, the exciting city in the
heart of Europe.
