Beschreibung: The International Max Planck Research School for Molecular Life Sciences: From Biological Structures to Neural Circuits (IMPRS-LS) currently has an open call for competitive PhD student positions.
IMPRS-LS brings together two renowned Max Planck Institutes, the MPI of Biochemistry and the MPI of Neurobiology as well as two leading partner-universities, the LMU and TUM, to deliver first class training for the world‘s most promising young scientists.

Situated in an outstanding research environment at the life science campus in Munich-Martinsried, our research activities center around three distinct but well-connected research branches: Our students and their supervisors strive to uncover molecular mechanisms regulating biological processes, analyze the resulting complex biological systems and decipher the intricate network of neural circuits leading to corresponding behavioral responses.

More than 60 distinguished group leaders actively participate in the PhD program and offer challenging and cutting-edge PhD projects in the following areas:

• Circuit Neuroscience & Neurodegeneration
• Biophysics & Bio-imaging
• Computational & Systems Biology

Our truly international students enjoy dedicated training workshops, world-class research facilities and supervision from faculty members who are leaders in their respective fields. Combined with a focus on early independence in research, our PhD program ensures those aiming for a successful career in science have the very best starting platform.

Applicants should hold an MSc with a strong background in biological sciences, neurosciences, biophysics or a related discipline.
Outstanding candidates with a first class BSc degree are welcome to apply for the fast track option.
For more information, eligibility criteria and online application please visit our website: www.imprs-ls.de

Application is open NOW. Closing date for application is November 15, 2017. Accepted candidates may start research projects between March 2018 and October 2018.
