CiM-IMPRS graduate program

CiM-IMPRS graduate program

The IMPRS PhD program is open for applications from 5 February to 7 April 2024.

Top PhD degree for young research talents

The graduate program CiM-IMPRS is a cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine and five faculties of the University of Münster and offers students exceptional scientific training opportunities in the field of molecular and cellular biosciences with a focus on imaging.

The close collaboration between the Max Planck Institute and the University of Münster is also reflected in the name CiM-IMPRS: "CiM" stands for the Cells in Motion Interfaculty Centre, which brings together more than 90 research groups from the life and natural sciences as well as mathematics and computer science. They work together in the interdisciplinary topic area of "Cell Dynamics and Imaging," which is a research focus at WWU. "IMPRS" stands for the MPI's "International Max Planck Research School", whose research focus is molecular biomedicine.

The PhD degree program in the above disciplines is open to both German and foreign students. The entire course program is held in English.

The program includes lectures, seminars and workshops in the areas of cell biology, physiology, biochemistry, immunology, infection biology, genetics, and bioinformatics. As integral part of this graduate program, students use cutting-edge imaging techniques for studying the cell and/or organism.

Through courses on communication, project planning and management, personnel management and business administration, the PhD students acquire additional skills that are important for a successful career in science.
