10 Fellowships, 3-year Ph.D. Programme starting fall 2009

The University of Cologne has a long-standing tradition and
world-wide reputation of top-level molecular biological research.
Beginning in the winter semester 2009/2010 the Research School
in Biology (From embryo to old age: the cell biology and genetics
of health and disease) will be offering a high-level Ph.D. programme
for students with excellent qualifications. The participating
research groups use today's preeminent microbial, plant
and animal model systems to investigate cell biological and
genetic mechanisms whose perturbation during the life cycle of
an organism results in disease.

The three-year programme starts with a six-month rotation and
course period, followed by a PhD project in one of the participating
groups. Seminars and training courses complement the research
work. Comprehensive support is provided throughout the programme.
The programme language is English, and no tuitions

10 competitive three-year fellowships (initially 1000 EUR, then
1300 EUR per month) are available. In addition, up to 10 students
with self-provided funding may be selected as associates.

We invite you to apply to the IGSDHD in Cologne, the exciting city
in the heart of Europe.
