School Programme Description
The international programme is a joint venture of the University of Göttingen, the University Medical Center, the German Primate Center and the Max Planck Institutes for Multidisciplinary Sciences resp. for Dynamics and Self-organization. Leading scientists of all partners offer research-oriented training across a broad spectrum of modern molecular life sciences with access to their state-of-the art laboratories during methods courses and individually supervised research projects.
After one year of intensive course work, students of this integrated Master/PhD program can continue with a six-month thesis to obtain a Master of Science degree, or join the PhD part directly (fast-track option).
The award-winning programme is recognized as an International Max Planck Research School, offering stipends to all of its students. A dedicated team of staff members provides a variety of support, individual counselling and career guidance.
