Hannover Biomedical Research School, as part of Hannover Medical School (MHH), invites applications for its three PhD programs to commence in October 2018.
HBRS is one of Germany’s leading graduate schools, funded by the Excellence Initiative and offering top-level research, education and training possibilities. Under this umbrella our three international (MD)/PhD programs Infection Biology, Molecular Medicine and Regenerative Sciences provide fully-funded studentships for a three-year course. In addition, the PhD program Infection Biology is offering DAAD studentships. In all three programs the focus is placed on individual research projects, complemented by program specific seminars as well as an individualized curriculum comprising lab and soft-skill courses, congresses, symposia and summer schools. Communication and teaching language throughout HBRS is English. Upon graduation students are awarded a PhD – life and natural scientists may alternatively choose a Dr. rer. nat.
All three PhD programs are aimed at highly motivated postgraduates with a background in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine or the Life Sciences.
