FMI International PhD Program Spring Call 2014

Dear Colleague,

We are most pleased to announce the FMllnternational PhD Program Spring Call 2014.

Affiliated with the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research and as an affiliated institute of the University of Basel, the FMI is situated at the interface of academic research and biomedical application. FMI students and postdoctoral fellows are not only exposed to the latest in molecular and genetic approaches, but are constantly encouraged to examine the biomedical application of their discoveries.

The FMI International PhD Program provides advanced, interdisciplinary training in epigenetics, neurobiology and·quantitative cell-biology: PhD students admitted to the program receive theoretical and practical training, and conduct a research project under the supervision of an FMI Group leader, monitored by a Thesis Committee of university professors and experts chosen by the student.

The FMI has excellent technical resources. PhD students learn highly advanced techniques from specialists and are introduced into experimental analysis at multiple levels of biological organization.

Selected candidates receive fellowships with social benefits and are awarded with funds to participate in scientific meetings or for the acquisition of a laptop.

The application deadline for the spring call is May 2, 2014.

In addition to the attached advertisement, more information may be found in our web site:

I’m happy to answer any further questions.
