PhD Student Fellowships in Infection Biology of Human Pathogens MH Hannover, Germany

Scholarship / Financial aid: 1,365 €/month
Date: up to three years
Deadline: April 30, 2009
Open to: young researchers

Announcement follows:
The central aim of the programme is to give young researchers the opportunity to perform their PhD work in the rapidly moving field of the infection biology of human microbial pathogens in a highly stimulating, competitive, international environment. The core element of the IRTG is a joint research programme centering on the question how human microbial pathogens achieve acute or persistent infection and how the host organism reacts to persistent infection.
Stipends will be 1,365 €/month and are available for up to three years. It is an integral part of the programme that PhD students spend 6-12 months in one of the partner labs at the Karolinska Institute.

Candidates that hold the equivalent of a master’s degree in Biology, Biochemistry or Life Sciences, or who graduated in medicine are welcome to apply. Those applicants who are selected for interviews in a first round of screening will be asked to attend a selection workshop in Hannover to be held June 10 / 11, 2009.

The deadline for receipt of a complete application is April 30, 2009.
