25 PhD Fellowships QBM

The Graduate School of Quantitative Biosciences Munich (QBM) is offering 25 PhD Fellowships for students with a background in biochemistry, biology, bioinformatics, physics or applied math and an interest in conducting interdisciplinary research at the interface of experiment and quantitative theory.
The Graduate School is funded by the German Excellence Initiative and seeks to prepare young life scientists for the emerging era of quantitative, systems-oriented bioscience. It provides an innovative, international PhD training program that bridges the divide between traditionally separate disciplines, from biochemistry and medicine to bioinformatics, experimental and theoretical biophysics, and applied mathematics. While maintaining a strong command of their ‘home’ discipline, QBM students will become well versed in multiple approaches and styles of thought and learn to communicate and work effectively with scientists from different backgrounds.
Key elements of the QBM program are:
  • an interdisciplinary research project jointly supervised by two PIs from different fields;
  • a substantial program of formal course work with a general and an individual component, centered around an interdisciplinary core course that covers key problems in bioscience from multiple perspectives;
  • a multi-facetted mentoring and professional skills program designed to promote students’ growth as independent scientists;
  • attractive compensation package that is competitive with other top graduate schools in the life sciences in Europe, and no tuition cost.
QBM is a joint initiative by leading scientists from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, the Max-Planck Institute of Biochemistry and the Helmholtz Center Munich. Research within the School encompasses the entire range of approaches brought to biological questions today, with a thematic focus on the problem of gene expression in all its facets.
