IMPRS for Organismal Biology are offering two open PhD positions funded by DAAD stipends. The positions are open (within the IMPRS) and not initially assigned to a specific project or a faculty member. Interested candidates are expected to apply with their own project ideas within the area of Organismal Biology, and to find matching faculty member(s) for their project proposal. It is the student’s choice what topic to study and with whom to conduct the study – given the agreement of an IMPRS faculty member as a mentor.
The candidates have to be non-German citizens and not living in Germany for more than 15 months prior to application, and are not allowed to have finished their MSc or Diploma more than 6 years ago. A maximum of 3 months of study period abroad per year (and a total of 9 months abroad) can be funded.
Number of award(s) offered: There are two open PhD positions funded by DAAD stipends.
The applications are reviewed by all IMPRS for Organismal Biology faculty members. Based on their academic qualification, motivation, suitability for the program, and letters of recommendation, shortlisted applicants are invited to the Selection Symposium. During the Selection Symposium, the candidates are expected to present their most relevant research project and will meet the IMPRS faculty and students to discuss previous training and research experience, to evaluate future plans, and to learn more about the IMPRS program and ongoing research in the working groups. After the Selection Symposium, the IMPRS Board will select the candidates based on the suggestions of all IMPRS members.
Note: Shortlisted applicants will be invited to our Selection Symposium in March.
