10 Doctoral projects at the Graduate School Life Science Munich

The Graduate School Life Science Munich (LSM) offers an international doctoral program to highly motivated and academically qualified next generation researchers at one of Europe’s top Universities. The members of LSM are part of the Faculty of Biology and the Faculty of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmacy of Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) Munich. Its prominent location within the HighTechCampus in Martinsried south of Munich, contributes to the enormous possibilities for support, interdisciplinarity and constant scientific input from the surrounding laboratories.
Available research projects cover areas from Anthropology, Human Biology, Biochemistry, Chemical Biology, Cell and Developmental Biology, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Pharmacology, and Plant Sciences.
About 40 research groups, internationally recognized for their innovative research approaches and technologies, are aiming to answer essential questions relevant to basic and applied biological and biochemical research. Within their own research group or in collaboration with a specialized research group on campus, LSM doctorates are given the opportunity to learn and command a variety of techniques. Furthermore, the graduate program holds various workshops and seminars that strengthen and prepare doctorates for a successful career as scientists.

All courses, lectures and seminars at the LSM are held in English. Thus, selected candidates have to be fluent in both written and spoken English.
Successful students of the graduate school will be awarded a doctoral degree (Dr. rer. nat.) by the LMU after 3 to 4 years. Candidates need to prove a strong qualitative background as well as interest and ability to conduct independent research.
