The joint CiM-IMPRS graduate program of the International Max Planck Research School – Molecular Biomedicine and Münster’s Cells in Motion Interfaculty Centre offers positions to pursue PhD projects in the areas of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics or computer science. We are looking for young scientists with a vivid interest in interdisciplinary projects to image cell dynamics from the subcellular to the patient level. PhD projects range from the analysis of basic cellular processes to clinical translation, from the application of novel biophysical approaches and the generation of mathematical models to the development of new imaging-related techniques and compounds.
Cell and Molecular Biology * Developmental and Stem Cell Biology
Vascular Biology * Immunology
Microbiology * Neurobiology
In vivo Imaging * High Resolution Optical Imaging
Biophysics * Chemical Biology
Label Chemistry * Mathematical Modelling
Applications for the PhD program can be submitted from 19 February to 12 April 2020. Projects start in October 2020 (earlier starts are possible if desired). Applications can only be submitted via our online system.
