PhD in Systems Biology; application deadline 1 December 2017 open

The Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology at the Max-Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) offers an exceptional PhD Program to support interdisciplinary research projects and international PhD education. Training is based on our major spectrum of medical systems biology research and technologies. Candidates educated in disciplines such as computational sciences mathematics, physics, biochemistry or molecular biology and sharing our interest in gene regulatory networks are strongly encouraged to apply.

Research Topics:
  •  Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Mathematical Modeling
  •  Gene Regulation: microRNAs, Epigenetics, Transcription, RNA Biology
  •  Genomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics, Single Cell Analysis and Imaging
  •  Cell Fate Conversion, Neuronal Differentiation, Reprogramming and
  • Signaling, Developmental Biology
We also offer a Berlin based PhD Exchange Program together with the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology at New York University (NYU). 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). Doctoral training with up to four year funded positions plus travel allowances and housing support is provided.

The program offers:
 interdisciplinary research training in top ranking labs projects that are dually mentored by a group leader from MDC and NYU students are supported to spend up to fifty percent of their time at NYU access to and training in high-end technologies, such as deep sequencing,mass spectrometry, bioinformatics an extensive and comprehensive archive of animal model systems participation in interdisciplinary classes, soft skills courses, student focused seminars and specialized summer schools regular opportunities to present your research at the BIMSB Student Seminar and attend the Systems Biology Lecture Series.
