The Fribourg Graduate School of Life Sciences (FGLS) is an interdisciplinary, international graduate school, which offers a coordinated doctoral program in life sciences at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. It addresses doctoral students in the fields of biology, biochemistry, molecular medicine, chemistry, physics, bioinformatics, and mathematics who have a life science focus. State-of-the-art theoretical and experimental research will lead to a PhD in science.
Currently, we are recruiting students in the fields of:
- Molecular and Behavioral Neurogenetics | Sprecher Lab
- Plant Symbioses | Reinhardt Lab
- Chronobiology | Albrecht Lab
- Regenerative Biology in Zebrafish | Jazwinska Lab
- Protein Homeostasis/Regulation of Autophagy | Dengjel Lab
- Computational Biophysics and Biochemistry | Vanni Lab
- Chordate regeneration | Blanchoud Lab
- Eukaryotic Ribosome Biogenesis | Kressler Lab
We offer an integrated research and training program which leads to a PhD after three to four years. The entire program is run in English. It includes supervision and mentoring, as well as courses on novel technologies and soft skills. We expect applicants to have an excellent university degree and to be motivated and interested in interdisciplinary research subjects. Excellent communication skills in English are of benefit.
Candidates are requested to send by email a SINGLE PDF application including a CV, a brief statement of their research interests and the preferred lab, a copy of their Master diploma (with grades), and names of three referees to
Mrs Adeline Guélat
Department of Biology
Application is open until October 31st, 2017. Interviews will take place in November/December 2017.
