Konstanz Research School Chemical Biology:

Research and Graduate Training at the Interface of Chemistry and Biology

The Konstanz Research School Chemical Biology (KoRS-CB) is an interdisciplinary initiative of the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Computer & Information Science at the University of Konstanz and is supported by the German Excellence Initiative.
KoRS-CB guides talented graduate students to scientific excellence. The research projects are dedicated to the following research areas: Synthetic Chemistry, Cellular Biochemistry, Biophysics, Biomedicine, and Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Life Science.
The individually tailored training programme − fully in English language − and the intensive supervision by an interdisciplinary thesis committee are the basic elements for the excellent educational standards of the graduate school.
KoRS-CB will accept new fellows in October 2013. Thus, KoRS-CB invites applications for Fellowships for Ph.D. Students from highly motivated and enthusiastic students with a keen interest in interdisciplinary re­search and with an excellent degree (Master or Diploma) in Biology, Chemistry, Computational Life Science, or related areas.
The research projects and the application procedure are specified on our homepage:
