The International Max Planck Research School for Translational Psychiatry (IMPRS-TP) is offering PhD positions in molecular, cellular and systemic psychiatric research. Students are exposed to a wide range of scientific questions and methods covering areas of molecular medicine, neuroscience, psychiatry, quantitative epigenetics and imaging, neuroimaging, design-based stereology and clinical studies.
In addition to the traditional doctorate positions, trainee medical doctors are given the opportunity to be enrolled on an integrated PhD/residence program in psychiatry. Highlighting the translational facet, doctorate students will receive insights into clinical aspects of disease and trainee medical doctors will gain PhD level research expertise, while also developing their clinical skills.
Structured curriculum: Core Course | Lecture Series | Methods Workshops | Soft Skills
Topics addressed range from molecular and cellular neuroscience, behavioral assessments, electrophysiology and brain imaging to psychological and clinical measures and outcomes, as well as, epidemiology, statistics and bioinformatics.
IMPRS-TP is a joint initiative of leading scientists from the Max Planck Institutes of Psychiatry and of Neurobiology and the Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich. Further collaborations have been established with the Munich Medical Research School (MMRS), the Helmholtz Center Munich, the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences (GSN), Martinsried, Germany and King’s College London, UK. IMPRS-TP is co-funded by the Else-Kröner-Fresenius Foundation.
IMPRS-TP welcomes applications from doctoral candidates coming from any country who hold a 4 year Bachelor or Master of Science (or an equivalent degree) in a relevant field or a Medical Degree. Applications from trainee medical doctors with laboratory experience are particularly encouraged. IMPRS-TP will only accept applications submitted through the IMPRS-TP online application tool. Applications submitted by mail or email will not be considered. Application deadline is 15 December 2018.
