Biomolecules: Structure-Function-Dynamics (Ph.D.)

Subject name: Biomolecules: Structure - Function - Dynamics (Ph.D.)
Degree: Promotion/Ph.D. (Dr.rer.nat/Ph.D.)
Standard period of study: 6 semesters
Starting semester: Summer and winter semester
Application: limited admission (application to GGNB)
Language skills: Englisch (proof required)


The doctoral program "Biomolecules: Structure ? Function -Dynamics" is a member of the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB). It is hosted by the Göttingen Center for Molecular Biosciences (GZMB) and is conducted jointly by the University of Göttingen, the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, and the German Primate Center.

The research-oriented program is taught in English and open to students who hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in the biosciences, chemistry, physics, medicine, or related fields.

The Biomolecules program provides training for doctoral students with a special interest in understanding cellular functions at the molecular level. Students should become experts in studying the structure and function of biomolecules at an atomic or molecular level, and they will also be trained in biophysical chemistry and cell biology in order to understand molecular function in a cellular context
