VBC PhD Program

Some research groups at the Max F. Perutz Laboratories also participate in the Vienna Biocenter International PhD program. This collaborative initiative of the four basic research institutes MFPL, IMP, IMBA and GMI at the Biocenter offers students first class training and education on their way to scientific success.

Research at the VBC covers a range of topics in modern biological sciences, including gene regulation, cell division, neural circuits, and evolutionary genomics. The VBC PhD programme supports its students in their scientific explorations, providing state-of-the-art equipment, expert scientific advisors, and extensive scientific and administrative support. The VBC PhD programme is the place for young researchers to put their creativity, ideas, and enthusiasm to work, addressing fundamental questions about how life works.

The Vienna Biocenter International PhD programme in Molecular Life Sciences is the longest running PhD programme at the Vienna Biocenter. Successful candidates in this programme have access to excellent facilities and an internationally competitive stipend.
