We encourage the application of talented and motivated students and we offer you the opportunity to develop into creative and passionate scientists. more…..
The scientific questions, that as a School we are interested in, are often very complex and require a combination of expertise. For this reason, we value interdisciplinarity and we actively search for students with backgrounds in Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science or Engineering that are willing to work hand in hand with Biologists.
As a Biologist, this is also the place for you: you will be encouraged to tackle questions using a variety of approaches for which you will find training and support on site. Projects are truly interdisciplinary because faculty with different backgrounds closely collaborate.
To get an overview of our Science, check out our Faculty Members.
IMPORTANT: you do NOT need to secure a position within a lab during the application phase. In the application, you will be asked to choose up to four groups of keywords that best fit your interests. Groups of keywords are linked to projects that will be discussed in detail during the interview days.
The list of Recruiting Faculty will be disclosed to the invited candidates.
Also, in your application you will be asked to justify your choice of keywords. This is a very important part of the application: use the motivation letter to convey in the most clear and comprehensive way the reasons why you are interested in joining our program and what are your major scientific interests.
Here is the complete list of groups of keywords, in alphabetical order, as they appear in the application for the Winter Selection 2018. Please select up to 4 groups of keywords:
BIOCHEMISTRY / CELL SIGNALING / CYTOSKELETON / BIOCHEMICAL RECONSTITUTION
BIOCHEMISTRY / CHROMATIN DYNAMICS AND REMODELLING / CRYO-ELECTRON MICROSCOPY / UNNATURAL AMINO ACIDS
