A PhD program for Future Leaders in Science

Integrating Biology, Physics, and Computer Science, the International Max Planck Research School for Cell, Developmental, and Systems Biology trains talented young researchers seeking a doctoral degree. Housed at three sites in Dresden, our PhD students work with top scientists from over 50 nations to ask: How do cells form tissues and organisms? Our PhD students show tremendous passion for cross-disciplinary science and pursue new directions in research. This site introduces you to our Predocs, Group Leaders, and Program. Learn more in a nutshell about our blend of quality research and fast-paced learning. If you have the drive and discipline to succeed in this environment, we encourage you to apply.
