PhD Fellowships at Jena School for Microbial Communication
JSMC offers a PhD program based on M.Sc. degrees, and seeks to attract highly motivated PhD students from various scientific disciplines such as biology, chemistry, physics, medical sciences, earth sciences, and bioinformatics.
JSMC provides a structured, interdisciplinary, research oriented PhD program.
This is based on extension of existing cooperative research, involves non-university research institutions and includes direct involvement of companies with exchange of results in collaborative PhD projects.
The education of young scientists within JSMC is based on top-level fundamental research in microbial communication.
Central elements of the doctoral training at JSMC are:
Cross-disciplinary PhD research projects, situated in the tension between basic research and industrial application
Promotion of research stays abroad, as well as of participation in international conferences and in collaborative projects to allow for an early internationalization of the PhD students and aid their networking
Comprehensive training in so-called ‘transferable skills', e. g. scientific publication and presentation, acquiring research funds, etc.
Close supervision by a team of mentors to warrant efficient realization of the goals of the PhD projects within 3 years.
