Information for Graduate Students

Applications from students in the fields of life sciences and medicine who are interested in completing a Bachelor's, Master's, or doctoral thesis at the institute are welcome. Please be aware that Max Planck Institutes do not award PhD degrees. Therefore, PhD students at the institute have to be enrolled at a university simultaneously. For more information about the different PhD programs and the application procedure, please follow the links to the right. Once you are accepted into a program we will be happy to assist you with any formalities.

International Max Planck Research Schools (IMPRS)

In the international competition for the best young minds, the Max Planck Society and various universities have established a special program of education and training for outstanding students: The International Max Planck Research Schools. The Max Planck Institutes for Biophysical Chemistry, for Dynamics and Self-Organization, and for Experimental Medicine have teamed up with the University of Göttingen to establish the scientific programs Molecular Biology, Neurosciences and Physics of Complex and Biological Systems. The structured education and training, with excellent research and learning conditions, is tailored to prepare exceptionally-talented German and foreign students for their doctoral studies.

Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB)

The institute also significantly contributes to the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB). The GGNB, which is supported by funds from the Excellence Initiative, creates the best possible research and training conditions for doctoral students and supports young scientists with offers of intensive courses and tutoring.

There are also programs for young scientists within the framework of further cooperations between the institute and the University of Göttingen, the Max Planck Institutes for Dynamics and Self-Organization and for Experimental Medicine as well as the German Primate Center. These include:
