The second call of the International PhD Programme upon the “Dynamics of Gene Regulation, Epigenetics as well as DNA Damage Response“ has right now already been released. The programme is actually maintained the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation, coordinated through the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) as well as consists of additional groups in Johannes Gutenberg University, the University Medical Center as well as the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research within Mainz.
The International PhD Programme (IPP) upon the “Dynamics of Gene Regulation, Epigenetics as well as DNA Damage Response” provides skilled as well as enthusiastic students the chance to carry out interdisciplinary PhD research in the cutting edge of modern biology. Research groups inside the Programme cover the broad range of expertise as well as the Programme themes encompass epigenetics, transcriptional control and dynamics, RNA biology, DNA damage repair, chromatin biology, bioinformatics and systems biology.
The IPP features a comprehensive programme for advanced training which will cover the variety of topics which will directly benefit the research of participating students. Such as, for instance, practical courses within bioinformatics, advanced microscopy, cytometry as well as cell sorting, qPCR, the analysis of microarray as well as next generation sequencing (NGS) data as well as statistics.
Within addition in order to learning new, state-of-the-art techniques through the wide range of experts which are present inside the Programme, people additionally be dedicated courses teaching the transferable skills which are necessary for the successful career. Courses cover, for example, scientific writing skills, presentation skills, project management as well as conflict management along with patenting.
The deadline for applications is 1 August 2012. To find out more along with a complete list of participating groups as well as projects please visit: www.imb-mainz.de/PhD.
