Each year we recruit new PhD students together with our ZIBI Graduate School partners. News on current calls for applications and info about the procedure can be found on
The applications will be reviewed by faculty members of the Graduate School and pre-selected candidates will be invited for an assessment center in Berlin. During this assessment center, the applicants will have several interviews with researchers of their potential future groups and will be selected based on academic qualifications, motivation, suitability to the program and referee's evaluations. Since the application deadline is only once a year and usually about 9-10 months before the start date of the doctoral work, please plan well ahead and complete your application documents in time. The exact dates of deadline, application center and final notification will be noted on the graduate school website listed above. Please do not send your documents by email, since only applications through our online application system will be considered.
