Multiple PhD Positions in Biology, Biochemistry and Bioinformatics

Posted by , on 2 August 2016

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

The Fribourg Graduate School of Life Sciences (FGLS) is an interdisciplinary and international graduate school, which offers a coordinated doctoral programme in life sciences at the University of Fribourg. It addresses doctoral fellows 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 Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

The Faculty of Sciences offers the following degrees related to biology:

  • PhD in Biology
  • PhD in Biochemistry
  • PhD in Bioinformatics

Currently, we are recruiting students in the fields of:

  • Protein Homeostasis in Autophagy
  • Plant Cell Polarity
  • Developmental and Behavioural Neurobiology
  • Chronobiology
  • Lipid Homoestasis in yeast
  • Nutrient signalling and growth control
  • Molecular and cellular Neurobiology
  • Regulation of plant symbiosis
  • Community Ecology

We offer an integrated research and training programme which leads to a PhD after three to four years. The entire programme is run in English and includes a supervision and mentoring programme, as well as courses of 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.

Application procedure:

If you are interested send an application including

  • a CV and names of three referees
  • a copy of your master degree (or the current academic transcript)
  • a statement of your research interests in the selected field(s)

to Ms Adeline Favre. Only complete application files will be considered.

Application is open until September 18th, 2016.

Interviews will take place in October 2016. Selected students will start latest January 2017.
