    Graduate Program

    The Graduate Program at the Institute

    The Institute is a major centre for biomedical research and welcomes graduate students from a wide variety of disciplines.

    The students can work here for degrees from Heidelberg University, with which the Institute is affiliated, or from other universities. For details of the research work at the MPI, see the web sites of the five scientific departments:

    40 PhD students from many different countries and disciplines are currently working in these departments at the Institute and will receive doctorates from several different faculties at Heidelberg University (including the Biosciences Faculty, Chemistry Faculty and Physics Faculty). These faculties have their own specific requirements which students must fulfill.

    The Institute has established a list of requirements which PhD students must fulfill,

    • in addition to their thesis work, in order to obtain a doctorate from the Faculty of Biosciences.

    If you are interested in doing a PhD at the Institute, please contact one or more of the department's directors or resarch group leaders.

    Bachelor and Master Degrees

    The Bachelor and Master degree programs at German universities currently require a period of practical research work. This work can be done at the MPI for Medical Research.
