PhD Programs, Medical University of Graz, Austria
PhD Programs: "Molecular Inflammation” (DK MOLIN), “Molecular Medicine” (MOLMED), “Advanced Medical Biomarker Research” (AMBRA)
Start of the projects: March 1, 2018. Application deadline: September 17, 2017
The Medical University of Graz offers international PhD programs in “Molecular Inflammation” (DK MOLIN), "Molecular Medicine" (MOLMED) and "Advanced Medical Biomarker Research" (AMBRA) that provide an in-depth, multidisciplinary training in biomedical research in a stimulating international environment. The thesis projects focus on aspects of metabolic diseases, cancer, inflammatory diseases, as well as novel therapeutic targets. The PhD programs aim to integrate basic research and clinically-oriented sciences utilizing a wide spectrum of state-of-the-art techniques.
Selected PhD candidates get employed for 3 years with a contract that includes social benefits.
WHO CAN APPLY
Applicants must hold (or be close to obtaining) an undergraduate degree equivalent to a Master degree in any discipline of natural or life sciences or medicine. The selection procedure, all training activities and communications will be in English. Thus, excellent written and spoken English skills are required.
HOW TO APPLY
Applications are made exclusively through the online platform mug.glowbase.com. Please do not send any documents by regular mail or e-mail unless you are explicitly asked to do so by our staff. There is no application fee.

FEBS Long-Term Fellowships: 2017 call is open
Applications are now invited for FEBS Long-Term Fellowships, via our online application system: fellowships.febs.org. The application deadline is October 1st, 2017.
FEBS Long-Term Fellowships are awarded to support long-term visits for the purpose of scientific collaboration or advanced training. These Fellowships are originally granted for one year and may be renewed for a further year up to a maximum of three years.
Applicants must have a PhD and should normally be scientists with no more than three years of post-doctoral experience. In order to be eligible to apply for a Long-Term Fellowship, applicants need to be members of a FEBS Constituent Society, to be working in a laboratory in a FEBS country and to be seeking to work in a laboratory in a different FEBS country.
Positions for PhD Students and Postdocs: Structure and function of DNA replication and chromosome maintenance machineries, Basel, Switzerland
Open positions for PhD students and postdocs are available in the newly established Bleichert lab at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI) in Basel, Switzerland. Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of nucleic acid transacting machines involved in DNA replication and chromosome maintenance. Exciting opportunities currently exist in our group to study mechanistic links between DNA replication and chromatin architecture using an innovative mix of biochemical, structural, biophysical and genetic tools. We therefore encourage applications from highly motivated PhD and postdoctoral candidates with different backgrounds, including molecular biology, biochemistry and/or structural biology.
The Bleichert group provides a stimulating environment within the FMI, a world-class basic research institute with excellent internal support. The Institute focuses on fundamental questions in multiple areas of life sciences, and has excellent state-of-the-art research facilities (including an X-ray crystallography facility and an EM center with a Titan Krios electron microscope equipped with K2 camera and phase plate, among many others).
Applications for postdoctoral positions should be submitted electronically at www.fmi.ch/opening by June 15, 2017.
Candidates for PhD studentships should apply through our International PhD Program (http://www.fmi.ch/Training/PhD/). Please note that there are two application deadlines per year (usually May 1, Dec 1). Interested candidates who wish to apply outside the period of these open calls should contact Franziska Bleichert directly by email.
Applications should include a motivation letter, a CV, and names and email addresses of at least two referees.
For further information, see http://www.fmi.ch/Careers/JobDetails.html?jobID=214 or contact Franziska Bleichert (firstname.lastname@example.org).
