- Interview in Dortmund1: 8th - 10th February 2021
1The interviews are at the moment planned onsite at the MPI of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund. Should the social and travel restrictions still be in place early next year (2021) the interviews will be carried out online via video conferencing. Decisions on the matter will be taken when the shortilisted candidates will be invited (approximately beginning of December 2020).

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 Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer 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. The list of recruiting group leaders and the details of the projects will be disclosed only upon invitation (approximately 6 weeks before the interview dates).
IMPORTANT: you do NOT need to secure a position within a lab during the application phase.
Below you can find the complete list of groups of keywords (=10 projects), in alphabetical order, as they will appear in the application for the Winter Selection 2021. 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.
