Education & Training

Doing research is one thing - teaching research is the other

The Max F. Perutz Laboratories realize the importance of training new generations of scientists, since the quality of research done in the future depends on the quality of teaching offered today. The institute offers a full career track education including undergraduate courses, international PhD programs, postdoctoral training and junior group leader positions to support and foster young scientists right from the start up to their first own research groups.
