How to join the IMPRS

1) for new students without funding

Please check our application requirements and procedure. Also note that students who have already completed a PhD program in life sciences should not apply.

We are currently recruiting. Please apply online - starting July 10, 2017 - here. Applications will close on August 18, 2017. Skype interviews will be held throughout September. Invitations to the recruitment event will be send out in early October. The recruitment will take place on November 28-29, 2017.

The PhD positions are available from January 2017 and will be funded for three years.

If you want to work with one of the IMPRS faculty members you are always welcome to pursue independent funding. The scholarship database offered by DAAD may help you to find a suitable program. Please also check our institute website for open positions.

2) for those who are already PhD students with an IMPRS faculty member

PhD students who want to become members of the IMPRS but who have not gone through our international recruitment procedure have to submit a written application backed up by at least two IMPRS Faculty members  (who, upon admission, will be the official supervisors of the doctoral research project). The IMPRS selection board will decide about the applications for admission. Applications have to be submitted to the IMPRS Office within six months after the doctorate project start.
