About the employer

The International Max Planck Research School – Biological Intelligence (IMPRS-BI), launched in January 2023, integrates research groups from three partners in the Munich area:
Max Planck Institute for Biological Intelligence (MPI-BI), with sites in Martinsried and Seewiesen
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), Munich
Technical University of Munich (TUM)

The mission of the new IMPRS-Biological Intelligence (IMPRS-BI) is to offer top-class education to doctoral students interested in the question of how nervous systems develop and have evolved to allow animals to pursue their goals, navigate their environment and employ behavioral strategies that are adapted to, and shape, their respective ecological niche. Thereby, research and training within the IMPRS-BI bridges all scales of biological organization, from molecules and genes to neuronal circuits, and from organisms to societies and ecosystems.

IMPRS-BI offers integrative doctoral training across different scientific fields, including neurobiology, connectomics, behavioral ecology and evolutionary genetics. The teaching language is English.

  • State-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge research projects
  • Individual supervision and mentoring
  • Full funding, with no tuition costs; additional funding for scientific meetings and training
  • Training in scientific, computational and transferable skills (e.g. method courses, guest seminars, statistics, writing and presentations skills, career development)

36 renowned scientists leading a research group at one of our three partner institutions, the newly founded MPI-BI (https://www.bi.mpg.de/en), LMU and TUM, support and advise our doctoral candidates throughout their studies to develop their personal and research skills to be prepared for a future career in science. IMPRS-BI builds on long-standing cooperations between the partner institutions and with research institutions from abroad.
