We would like to draw your attention to the Summer School of Molecular Medicine, which will be held in the Jena University Hospital from August 14 till September 14, 2017. The Summer School will provide an excellent opportunity for young scientists to get familiar with research topics of molecular medicine and modern laboratory techniques. In addition, social events will provide a setting to meet and to learn more about the cultural life in Jena and its environs.
The program is open to participants from all over the world who hold a Master’s or Diploma degree in biosciences, biochemistry, medicine or related fields. The candidates will complete a practical course consisting of modules from four different complexes (Molecular Biology, Morphology, Signaling, and Animal Models). The courses are accompanied by a lecture series.
We will not charge a fee for the course. In addition, the accepted candidates will be supported by a DAAD fellowship, which will cover costs for accommodation and most of the travel expenses. Highly motivated candidates who have successfully completed the course will have the possibility to apply for a PhD position in the participating research groups. Candidates with an MD have the possibility of enrolling in the Master's course in Molecular Medicine at Jena University Hospital and joining a PhD programme once they have completed this course.

The deadline to apply to the Summer School is May 1th, 2017.
