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.
Currently, the MFPL host four Doctoral Programs with a special research focus reviewed and funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF):
- Molecular Mechanisms of Cell Signaling
- Chromosome Dynamics
- RNA Biology
- Structure and Interaction of Biological Macromolecules
A joint program of the research institutes at the Vienna Biocenter Campus.
MFPL PhD Selection - Recruiting Groups
The Spring 2016 MFPL PhD selection took place on May 9th-12th in Vienna. Students from all over the world traveled Vienna to meet MFPL scientists, learn about their research, and get a taste of Viennese life. Stay tuned for the Winter 2016 MFPL PhD selection.
