CiM-IMPRS is a joint graduate program of the International Max Planck Research School IMPRS-Molecular Biomedicine and the CiM Graduate School of the “Cells in Motion” Cluster of Excellence at the University of Münster. The program is jointly run by the University of Münster and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine.

The Ph.D.program offers excellent research and teaching in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences with a strong emphasis on Imaging. The program is open to graduates of the biological sciences, chemistry, mathematics, computer sciences and physics.

Introduction:

What we are. What we offer.

The program is jointly run by the University of Münster and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine. The CiM Graduate School of the “Cells in Motin” Cluster of Excellence and the International Max Planck Research School – Molecular Biomedicine were merged to form one graduate

program.

The PhD program offers cutting edge science and teaching in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences with a strong emphasis on Imaging. Although the focus of the program lies on biomedical research, there is also a strong demand for graduates of computer sciences, mathematics, chemistry and physics to work on new ways of image acquisition and analysis as well as on novel labelling methods.

We offer outstanding research in high-profile laboratories as well as excellent scientific and “soft-skill” training aimed to strengthen the PhD students’ competencies for their future careers. Each year up to 16 PhD students will receive fellowships (tax-free) or work contracts (for more details go to Application). More PhD positions financed by work contracts may be offered depending on availability. There are no tuition fees.
We offer support with visas, accommodation and administrative matters.

CiM-IMPRS is open for highly qualified and motivated students of any nationality. We also encourage students who have obtained a Master’s degree at Münster University to apply for a CiM-IMPRS fellowship.
