The graduate program IMPRS for Biology And Computation (IMPRS-BAC) provides an education for students at the interface of molecular life sciences and computational sciences. This is based on perspective and supervision from both ends - experimental and computational - and suits students with degrees in molecular biology, biochemistry, mathematics, bioinformatics or any related areas. If you have a passion for epigenetics, bioinformatics, developmental biology, mathematics, sequence analysis, gene regulation, RNA biology, mechanobiology, protein biochemistry, stem cells and differentiation, statistics, molecular evolution or biophysics and want to work at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics or the Freie Universität Berlin - this is the program for you! The application platform is now closed and will re-open in October 2021.
Our application platform will be open from approximately October 2021 until 7th of January, 2022. For your online application please prepare
- a letter of motivation
- an indication of the groups at IMPRS-BAC you'd like to work with
- a formal CV
- your certificates (you should gain your degree before October 2022)
- the names of two willing referees
- a research proposal (best based on the project proposals linked above)
The further progress of the pandemic will dictate whether our admission procedure will include interviews in Berlin or consist entirely of online elements. The decision will be announced here in September 2021.
