How does life emerge from molecules and cells? This is the central question that motivates us. With curiosity and passion, we investigate the entire spectrum ranging from the atom to the organism. The Biozentrum of the University of Basel is one of the world’s leading life sciences institutes. With 32 groups and 500 employees, we are a dynamic and international research community that has spawned many fundamental discoveries in biology and medicine as well as several Nobel Laureates. Become part of our community!
Research at the Biozentrum embraces a wide range of topics with a focus on understanding how molecules are organized to create life and living organisms. Areas of research are the structure and function of macromolecules, the wiring of regulatory circuits, and the general principles underlying complex biological systems and their dynamic interactions.
We invite talented, ambitious and highly motivated young scientists from all over the world to join our International PhD Program. Our fellowships are particularly well suited for students with broad interests or who come from fields such as physics, chemistry or computer science.
Our PhD fellowships are unique: students can select any Biozentrum research group through rotations, which offers the chance to learn skills and techniques needed in modern biology. The fellowships give students full and independent funding for their entire PhD and grant additional travel funds.
