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
  • Neur­os­cience
  • Model sys­tems and organoids
  • Med­ical sys­tems bio­logy
  • Com­pu­ta­tional bio­logy and bioin­form­at­ics
  • Omics data sci­ence
  • Math­em­at­ical mod­el­ing
  • Ima­ging and MRI

Join us!


Who are we look­ing for?

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

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:

At the MDC, we believe that to be a great sci­ent­ist, one needs to train a diverse set of com­pet­ences. To sup­port our PhD research­ers to develop both per­son­ally and sci­en­tific­ally, we offer a struc­tured PhD pro­gram in a research-intens­ive atmo­sphere, includ­ing:

  • Excel­lent sci­entific, inter­na­tional and sup­port­ive envir­on­ment
  • Indi­vidual PhD super­vi­sion and ment­or­ing
  • Advanced sci­entific, research-related and meth­ods train­ing
  • Access to state-of-the-art infra­struc­ture
  • Reg­u­lar lec­tures and sem­inar series
  • Frame­work pro­gram for per­sonal and career devel­op­ment
  • Par­ti­cip­a­tion in PhD sym­po­sia and retreats
  • Travel grants for external courses and con­fer­ences

Stu­dents may join our MDC-NYU PhD Exchange Pro­gram in Med­ical Sys­tems Bio­logy, 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. The MDC is situ­ated at two loc­a­tions in Ber­lin: major­ity of infra­struc­ture is loc­ated on Cam­pus Ber­lin-Buch, a mod­ern sci­ence and bio­tech­no­logy park with a clear focus on bio­medi­cine, while labor­at­or­ies and offices of the Ber­lin Insti­tute for Med­ical Sys­tems Bio­logy (MDC-BIMSB) are loc­ated on Cam­pus Ber­lin-Mitte. Fam­ily-friendly cam­pus offers ser­vices to sup­port the com­pat­ib­il­ity of work and fam­ily life, such as cam­pus kinder­garten or fully equipped Par­ent-child room. Join our com­munity of 400 inter­na­tional PhD stu­dents and enjoy study­ing and liv­ing in Ger­many!

How to ap­ply:

Applic­a­tions are sub­mit­ted through our online recruit­ment portal. The required applic­a­tion doc­u­ments include a research interest let­ter, CV, edu­ca­tion details, and ref­er­ence let­ters of two ref­er­ees. Applic­a­tions via email can unfor­tu­nately not be accep­ted.

If you are inter­ested, apply via the applic­a­tion portal:

MDC adheres to prin­ciples of respons­ible research, good sci­entific prac­tice, open­ness and trans­par­ency, and is com­mit­ted to set­ting a good example as a sci­entific envir­on­ment where sci­ent­ists can flour­ish and grow, inde­pend­ently of their national or eth­nic back­ground, func­tional vari­ation, sex/gender iden­tity/align­ment/ori­ent­a­tion, fam­ily con­fig­ur­a­tion, or other such fea­ture of their per­sons or con­texts.
