The training of young scientists through our International PhD Program is a long-standing priority and has made the Biozentrum a launching pad for successful research careers. We invite you to either apply directly to join one of the 30 research groups of the Biozentrum or to apply for the “Independent Fellowships” program that offers a unique rotation-based selection of research groups.

  • the broad, cutting-edge research that ranges from atoms to organisms

  • the outstanding, interdisciplinary teaching program

  • the mentoring program providing intensive individual supervision

  • the lively PhD community

  • the location, situated in the heart of Europe’s most important Life Sciences hub

  • the beautiful city of Basel in the trinational region of Switzerland, Germany and France.
