Open to: postgraduates with a background in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine or the Life Sciences
Allowance: stipend not stated
Hannover Biomedical Research School, as part of Hannover Medical School (MHH), invites applications for its three PhD programs to commence in October 2011.
HBRS is one of Germany’s leading graduate schools, funded by the Excellence Initiative and offering top-level research, education and training possibilities. Under this umbrella our three international PhD programs Infection Biology, Molecular Medicine and Regenerative Sciences provide fully-funded studentships for a three-year course. In all three programs the focus is placed on individual research projects, complemented by program specific seminars as well as an individualized curriculum comprising lab and soft-skill courses, congresses, symposia and summer schools. Communication and teaching language throughout HBRS is English. Upon graduation students are awarded a PhD √ life scientists may alternatively choose a Dr. rer. nat.
Eligibility and expectations
All three PhD programs are aimed at highly motivated postgraduates with a background in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine or the Life Sciences. The PhD program Regenerative Sciences is also open to students from a Materials Science discipline. We are looking for enthusiastic candidates of all nationalities who have a keen interest in one of the research foci offered by our programs. Excellent written and spoken English skills are required.
PhD Infection Biology: The program’s objective is to investigate the complex interactions between host and pathogen as well as basic research with the combined tools of immunology, microbiology, virology, cell biology and molecular biology. For more information please see here.
