A PhD student commits several years of his or her life to research and the acquisition of scientific communication and leadership skills. At the end of his PhD training period, the student should come away with not only an advanced academic degree, but a firm understanding of the workings of cutting-edge research and a solid foundation for his or her career. 

The International PhD Program at MPI-DB and FML offers cutting edge training in the Biological Sciences. PhD students receive personal training complemented by selected courses and seminars. All positions are fully funded, and degrees are awarded through the University of Tuebingen.
