Our PhD program in the life sciences places special emphasis on interdisciplinary interactions. We want to train the next generation of scientists to study complex biological processes that cannot be adequately understood within the limits of a single discipline. By combining methods and approaches from different scientific fields, our students aim to address topics inaccessible to isolated research areas.
Around 50 young scientists are currently working towards their PhD in our program; just over a third come from Germany, the rest from around the world. Twenty-five eminent group leaders provide project supervision, plus expertise and infrastructure across the following traditionally separate fields:
Our program is based in Tuebingen, a hotspot for science and research in southwest Germany. Tuebingen is home to one of Germany’s oldest universities and numerous top-level research institutes. Compact and friendly, with a beautiful medieval town centre, modern Tuebingen has a lively, international feel, with cultural and entertainment opportunities to rival larger cities. For international travel, Stuttgart International Airport is reached in 20 minutes.
