Corona Virus: stylised image

Dear applicants,

in response to the impact that the COVID-19 outbreak is having on individuals and organisations worldwide, our PhD program decided to extend the deadlines for the DIGS-BB PhD Fall Selection 2020 by an additional 2.5 weeks. As such, we hope to give all applicants the same opportunity, regardless of where they apply from and the limitations COVID-19 is causing.

The new deadlines are as follows:

Register by 11 June
Submit application by 21 June

The interview week in September (1–4) is planned to be held virtually.

Any changes in the assessment/interview procedure (including the possibility of holding the interviews by video conference) will be communicated in due course.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

If you’re looking for a PhD position in a Life Science research group you’ve certainly come to the right place! You might want to scan the full list of research groups affiliated to our program and use the provided filters to find those that exactly match your interests. As a DIGS-BB PhD student you will not only be part of exciting research but you’ll also profit from expert mentoring and a well-thought-out training curriculum, extra-curricular activities and a campus and city that you’ll certainly enjoy living and working in.
