The Leibniz Graduate School on Aging belongs to the Leibniz Association - a non-university research organization equivalent to the Max Planck Society and the Helmholtz Association. The Graduate School offers an international postgraduate program for students with excellent qualifications. The participating research groups work on Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Cancer Biology and Neurobiology to investigate the multifaceted mechanisms that cause the development of age-related diseases and those that cause senescence and aging.

Training and research within the PhD program are interdisciplinary. Lecture series, seminars, journal clubs and courses as well as training in presentation skills and language classes complement the practical work. A
thesis committee provides comprehensive support and the mentorship in the career development of the student. The program language is English.
Eligible are students that have obtained, or that will obtain within half a year, an academic degree comparable to the master degree or diploma in natural sciences (e.g. Biology, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Physics, and Chemistry) with excellent marks.
