Doctoral studies in Molecular Biology

If you are interested to become a PhD student in Molecular Biology a good start is to identify a research group with a project that match your scientific interests . PhD students at our department usually work in one of these groups.

The department has a pronounced international character with many guest researchers and PhD students from other countries. The independent research groups work in modern laboratories with well-equipped common facilities, which create a framework for a creative and highly interactive environment.

The specific research interests of the different groups are interconnected by a common interest in central questions concerning the molecular mechanisms of regulation of cellular processes in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. The research topics are broad and currently covers infection biology, cell biology, genetics and developmental biology using bacteria, yeast, fruit flies, cell lines and mouse models.
