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 (=8 projects), in the order as they will appear in the application for the Summer 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.
