We are pleased to announce this year’s Spring Call for the FMI International PhD Program.
The Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research, affiliated with the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research and the University of Basel, operates at the interface between academic research and biomedical applications. Hence, our students not only acquire fundamental research skills, using cutting-edge approaches, but also learn to consider the biomedical applications of their discoveries.
The FMI International PhD Program offers advanced, interdisciplinary training in epigenetics, neurobiology, and quantitative biology on a wide variety of topics, including structural biology.
PhD students admitted to the program pursue research projects developed together with their Group leader, receiving outstanding support from the FMI research platforms in, for example, imaging, genomics or bioinformatics. Numerous theoretical and practical training programs are available both at the FMI and at the University of Basel, and the Basel/Zurich life science community provides exceptional local opportunities for further scientific interactions. Our PhD students receive generous fellowships, with social benefits.
The application deadline for the upcoming call is May 1, 2017; selected applicants will be invited for on-site interviews, taking place June 28–30, 2017.
