A joint PhD program The German-Israeli Helmholtz Research School "Frontiers in Cell Signaling and Gene Regulation" (SignGene) open

The German-Israeli Helmholtz Research School "Frontiers in Cell Signaling and Gene Regulation" (SignGene) is a joint PhD program between Berlin in Germany and Haifa and Jerusalem in Israel. 
Our research focuses on unraveling the mechanisms that govern the development and physiological functions of normal cells with the goal to understand the pathological processes underlying diseases such as cancer. Lively interactions across our network of world-leading scientists and vivid scientific collaborations across borders make SignGene an exceptional international experience for PhD students.

Depending on the affiliation of their primary supervisor, our students have either the MDC, the HU Berlin or the Charité in Berlin as their home institute and are mainly located in Germany, or they live in Israel with the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa or the Hebrew University of Jerusalem as their home institute. 
Students carry out their dissertation as tandem projects mentored by a bilateral pair of senior scientists and take part in our regular scientific meetings and networking events.

SignGene offers
• advanced training in the fields of cell signaling and gene regulation in cancer and normal cells, quantitative biology, bioengineering and biophysics
• Exciting research projects and dual mentoring by a pair of collaborating senior scientists from Germany and Israel
• Prolonged exchange visits in a partnering laboratory abroad
• Annual scientific symposia and workshops alternating between Germany and Israel
• Transferable skills courses to support personal career development
