WINTER SELECTION 2023 : LAST CHANCE: YOU HAVE TIME UNTIL MIDNIGHT TODAY!!!

 

  • online registration: from 15th September 2022
  • deadline (extended!!!) for application: 4th November 2022 (24:00 Berlin Time)
  • deadline for submission of reference letter: 7th November 2022 (24:00 Berlin Time)
  • online* interviews: 16th-20th January 2023

 

*The IMPRS-LM has decided once again for online interviews. Although the current developments of the pandemic allow us to resume near to normal scientific activities, we are still concerned that candidates from non-European countries may experience travel restrictions and consequently may not be able to join onsite interviews.

IMPORTANT: the interviews will consist of short online interactions (presentations, panel interviews, live lab sessions) distributed throughout the week between the 16th and the 20th January 2023. Although a constant presence is not required, we invite interested applicants to already keep free the 16th and 17th of January as the mandatory online interactions will be scheduled on these two days. The program will be disclosed only to invited candidates.

 

Applications are possible only via the ONLINE APPLICATION IMPRS-LM database2.

We encourage the application of talented and motivated students and we offer you the opportunity to develop into creative and passionate scientists. more…..

The scientific questions, that as a School we are interested in, are often very complex and require a combination of expertise. For this reason, we value interdisciplinarity and we actively search for students with backgrounds in PhysicsMathematicsChemistryComputer Science or Engineering that are willing to work hand in hand with Biologists.
As a Biologist, this is also the place for you: you will be encouraged to tackle questions using a variety of approaches for which you will find training and support on site. Projects are truly interdisciplinary because faculty with different backgrounds closely collaborate.

To get an overview of our Science, check out our Faculty Members.

In the ‘Research Experience and Motivation’ section of the application, you will be asked to select projects by choosing a combination of keywords. Each group of keywords corresponds to a project and a laboratory.
IMPORTANT: you do NOT need to secure a position within a lab during the application phase.

Below you can find the recruiting groups and an associate list of keywords (=9 projects), in the order as they will appear in the application for the Winter Selection 2022. Please choose the groups of keywords that best reflect your interests and select up to 4 groups of keywords.

TIP: use the motivation letter to convey, in the most clear and comprehensive way, why you are interested in joining our program, why you chose certain keywords and what are your major scientific interests.
