  • An interdisciplinary research environment connecting bio­logical sciences (structu­ral biology, cell biology, neuro­biology, molecular biology, micro­biology, bio­chemistry, computational biology) with physics, mathematics, and chemistry
  • Excellent working conditions with fully funded PhD positions and assistance in all organi­zational matters
  • An outstanding supervision concept with multiple expe­rienced and engaged supervisors
  • The opportunity to build lasting networks in a collabo­rative research environ­ment with ~30 inter­nationally renowned PIs from the parti­cipating institutions
  • An attractive living environment with the Rhine-Main region around Frank­furt am Main being an inter­national scientific, financial, and cultural hub
  • A strong community of PhD students jointly attending graduate courses
  • An innovative teaching concept with professional and transferable skills workshops
