PhD in a Physics of Life Research Group

PhD positions in our research groups will be offered through the Dresden International Graduate School Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB), a PhD program at the TU Dresden. Some of our groups with an affiliation at MPI-CBG, offer PhD positions through the International Max Planck Research School for Cell, Developmental and Systems Biology (IMPRS-CellDevoSys). Both programs joined forces under the roof of the Dresden International PhD Program (DIPP).

PoL Core Groups and Affiliates/Associates at TU Dresden recruit PhD students through the international PhD Program DIGS-BB. The DIGS-BB offers PhD positions for up to four years in world-class interdisciplinary research projects ranging from Biomedicine and Bioengineering to Cell, Molecular and Developmental Biology, Biophysics, Biochemistry, Regenerative and Degenerative Biology, Biomaterials, and Computational Biology.

We foster critical thinking and early independence. Our mission is to promote excellence in science by inspiring our talented PhD students to become innovative research leaders. Our curriculum goes beyond traditional scientific training to support both scientific and personal development.

The PhD program is looking for bold, highly committed, ambitious and creative students who strive to work on challenging projects at the frontiers of science. If you are enthusiastic and passionate about science, and have an excellent university degree (MSc or equivalent), in life sciences, natural sciences, computer science, medicine, materials science, physics or engineering, the DIGS-BB is looking forward to receiving your application.

We provide innovative training, guidance and mentoring in an international “open door” environment with state-of-the-art institutes and a unique infrastructure.
