COS PhD Program

The Centre for Organismal Studies offers an attractive 3-year PhD program with excellent training and research opportunities in organismal, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, developmental and evolutionary biology. Scientific work is based on state-of-the art methodological platforms including bioimaging, structural biology and functional genomics. The program emphasizes on independent research and is complemented by a thorough PhD curriculum.

The COS PhD program is embedded in the Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School (HBIGS) and aims to realize a continuous and intense training program of future researchers. Strong ties with other graduate schools on the Heidelberg Life Sciences Campus encourage close cooperation and provide a vigorous scientific environment. 

The program is open to students from Germany and from abroad who hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in life sciences, chemistry, medicine, or related fields. All courses are held in English.
