The following elements make up the curriculum of the IMPRS-BAC:

  • Welcome weeks lay the groundwork and introduce the breadth of our research
  • University lectures in mathematics, computer science, bioinformatics, biochemistry and biology allow you to catch up with the areas unfamiliar to you
  • Nanocourses push your knowledge at the cutting edge of research in biology and computation
  • Otto Warburg Summer Schools provide an in-depth look at a current topic
  • Colloquia allow doctoral students to present their research to their peers and other local scientists. Invited guests complement these half-day events.
  • Once a year, the student association of the MPIMG organises a doctoral student retreat where participants learn about each other's research, network and gain new perspectives on their own work.
  • Transferable skills complement the academic curriculum by teaching you to write, lead, publish, network, manage, present and plan your future career. In addition to those listed below, the courses of the Dahlem Research School are also accessible to doctoral students of the IMPRS-BAC.

Required courses during your PhD:

  • Welcome weeks, ideally at the beginning of your PhD
  • Workshop on good scientific practice
  • Workshop on scientific writing in English
  • Workshop on statistical literacy where this was not part of your degree
  • Three nanocourses
  • One Otto Warburg Summer School
