International Max Planck Research School for Genome Science
The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Genome Science is recruiting annually.
Next online application (for PhD starting in fall 2021 or earlier) will be open in December 2020. Deadline is February 12, 2021. Due to the Covid-19 constraints and the resulting difficulty to obtain travel visa, the recruitment might be fully online. More information will be provided in December 2020.
The International Max Planck Research School for Genome Science (IMPRS-GS) is a PhD programme located at Göttingen Research Campus. IMRPS-GS PhD students are trained in experimental and computational genome sciences. We, the faculty of IMPRS-GS, conduct research in functional genomics, quantitative proteomics, bioimaging, computational biology, and bioinformatics. The growing high-throughput and quantitative measurement technologies in these research areas lead to increasing cross-disciplinarity between experiment, computation, and analysis. We therefore consider it crucial for the coming generation of researchers in genome sciences, whether experimental or theoretical, to become specialist in one discipline and to understand the language of the other. It is our goal to train this new generation of scientists.
The IMPRS-GS is part of the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB), funded by the German Excellence Initiative since 2008. It is conducted jointly by the University of Göttingen and the University Medical Center Göttingen, the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, the Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine and the German Primate Center.
