The International Max Planck Research School Molecular Biomedicine (IMPRS-MBM) and the Cells in Motion Excellence Cluster (CiM) offer 16 PhD Fellowships in Life and Natural Sciences. More PhD positions financed by work contracts may be offered depending on availability.
The CiM Graduate School and IMPRS-MBM – jointly run by the University of Munster and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine – offer interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical research with a strong emphasis on imaging. PhD projects range from the analysis of basic cellular processes to clinical translation, from the generation of mathematical models to the development of new imaging-related techniques and compounds.
