Max Del­brück Cen­ter for Molecu­lar Medi­cine (MDC)

The Max Del­brück Cen­ter for Molecu­lar Medi­cine is devoted to bio­med­ical research with the aim of under­stand­ing the molecu­lar basis of health and dis­ease and trans­lat­ing find­ings as quickly as pos­sible into clin­ical applic­a­tions. Bet­ter pre­ven­tion, dia­gnosis and treat­ment of dis­eases are the ulti­mate goals.

Fully-fun­ded PhD pos­i­tions in Bio­med­ical Sci­ences at the MDC Ber­lin

Max Del­brück Cen­ter for Molecu­lar Medi­cine (MDC) invites applic­ants for PhD pos­i­tions.

Work­ing field:

Are you pas­sion­ate about under­stand­ing the molecu­lar basis of health and dis­ease, and trans­lat­ing your find­ings into clin­ical applic­a­tions?

Are you inter­ested in one of the fol­low­ing top­ics:
  • Car­di­ovas­cu­lar research and meta­bolic dis­eases
  • Can­cer and immun­o­logy
  • Med­ical sys­tems bio­logy
  • Math­em­at­ical mod­el­ing
  • Com­pu­ta­tional bio­logy
  • Neur­os­cience
  • Trans­la­tional research

Join us!


  • You are an enthu­si­astic stu­dent with a strong interest in life sci­ences
  • You hold or expect to obtain a Mas­ter degree not later than Feb­ru­ary 2020
  • Your degree is in bio­logy, medi­cine, molecu­lar medi­cine, chem­istry, com­puter sci­ence, engin­eer­ing, math­em­at­ics, phys­ics or a related field

We are com­mit­ted to meet today’s chal­lenges in bio­logy and medi­cine and real­ize that excel­lent sci­ence requires out­stand­ing research­ers. If you aspire to be one of them – wel­come to the MDC!

What we of­fer:

Situ­ated in an excel­lent sci­entific, inter­na­tional and sup­port­ive envir­on­ment, the MDC provides you with:
  • Struc­tured PhD pro­gram
  • Advanced research train­ing, incl. sum­mer schools, and annual PhD retreats
  • Indi­vidual super­vi­sion from expert sci­ent­ists
  • Access to state-of-the-art tech­no­logy
  • Travel grants for external courses and con­fer­ences
  • Frame­work pro­gram for per­sonal and career devel­op­ment

Stu­dents can enroll in one of our them­at­ic­ally focused PhD Exchange Pro­grams:
  • The MDC-NYU PhD Exchange Pro­gram in Med­ical Sys­tems Bio­logy
  • Sign­Gene - The Ger­man-Israeli Helm­holtz Research School “Fron­ti­ers in Cell Sig­nal­ing and Gene Reg­u­la­tion”,

or become asso­ci­ated with the inter­dis­cip­lin­ary HEIBRiDS Data Sci­ence School.

The work­ing lan­guage of the pro­gram is Eng­lish.

Ber­lin is one of the most vibrant cit­ies loc­ated in the heart of Europe. It offers an incred­ible load of enter­tain­ment, cul­tural and recre­ational activ­it­ies. Join our com­munity of 400 inter­na­tional PhD stu­dents and enjoy study­ing and liv­ing in Ger­many!
