PhD fellowships open call for University of Cologne

Thanks to Su Jun for sharing on this program. She also highlighted that ability to speak German is not a pre-requisite for this program.


University of Cologne, Germany
PhD fellowships starting Fall 2011
The University of Cologne has a long-standing tradition and world-wide reputation for top-level molecular biological research. Beginning in Fall 2011 we offer:

PhD fellowships from the International Graduate School in Development Health and Disease 

The participating research groups use microbial, plant and animal model systems to investigate cell biological and genetic mechanisms whose perturbation during the life cycle of an organism results in disease.

The three-year programme starts with a six-month rotation and course period, followed by a PhD project in one of the participating groups. Seminars and training courses complement the research work. Comprehensive support is provided throughout the programme. The programme language is English. 

Accepted students will receive a laptop computer and 500 EUR to get started in Cologne. No tuition fees are charged.
