International PhD Programme on Gene Regulation, Epigenetics & Genome Stability (IPP)

Winter call 2019/2020
More than 15 fully funded PhD positions in at least 10 research groups

Thinking of doing your PhD in Molecular Biology? The International PhD Programme (IPP) on “Epigenetics, Gene Regulation & Genome Stability” is offering talented, young scientists the chance to work at the cutting edge of research. The IPP has a community of exceptional scientists working on diverse topics. These range from how organisms age or how our DNA is repaired, to how epigenetics regulates cellular identity or evolution. This means that no matter where your PhD project takes you, there is always someone to go to for advice or collaborations.

Programme Themes:

Epigenetics, RNA Biology, Transcriptional Control & Dynamics, Synthetic Biology, Stem Cells& Developmental Biology, Genome Stability & DNA Repair, Evolution, Computational Biology

As part of the IPP, you will be given advanced training , covering skills needed for both research and industry. Access to our state-of-the-art Core Facilities and their technical expertise ensures that you are supported no matter how challenging or expansive your project becomes. Importantly, as an IPP student, you are offered a fully funded position with financing until the completion of your thesis. To help you integrate and settle in Mainz, IPP students organise and run a lively social programme with activities to suit everyone.

Are you an ambitious, young scientist looking to push back the boundaries of science while interacting with colleagues from multiple disciplines and cultures? Then the IPP is your opportunity to give your scientific career a flying start!

The programme is coordinated by the Institute of Molecular Biology—a centre of excellence in the life sciences. Participating groups are located at the:

  • Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB)
  • Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU)
  • Mainz University Medical Centre (UMC)
  • Technical University of Darmstadt (TUD)
120 PhD students from 30 different nations are enrolled in the IPP.

We offer

  • The possibility to work on exciting, multidisciplinary projects using state-of-the-art technology in highly motivated research teams
  • To be part of a lively and international community of about 140 IPP students from more than 30 countries
  • Numerous opportunities for advanced professional training in scientific knowledge, techniques and professional skills
  • Fully funded positions until completion of thesis

Required qualifications
