PhD Positions: Berlin, Germany open

The Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology at the Max-Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) offers an exceptional PhD Exchange Program to support interdisciplinary research projects and international PhD education.

PhD topics are structured as collaborative projects between the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology at New York University (NYU) and the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology at the MDC. A Principal Investigator from each institution supervises each student, students who are expected to divide their time between Berlin and New York, taking advantage of complimentary research and training expertise. Resources are available for travel from Berlin to New York for both short and long term working periods as well as for course and conference participation. The regular guidance of an international PhD Committee supports the creation of individual research and training portfolios.

We offer projects in the areas:

  • Systems Biology and Molecular Networks
  • Gene Regulation: microRNAs, Epigenetics, Transcription, RNA Biology
  • Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Mathematical Modeling
  • Genomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics, Single Cell Analysis and Imaging
  • Cell Fate Conversion, Neuronal Differentiation, Reprogramming and Signaling

  • Further information on the Institute and its mission to decipher the post-transcriptional regulatory code here: www.mdc-berlin.de/en/bimsb

    The program is embedded into the research and training activities of the Helmholtz Graduate School Molecular Cell Biology (MDC) and the Department of Biology (NYU).

    Online registration/application is now activated.

    Application deadline is August 26th 2013.
