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 16 till September 16, 2021. 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 practical courses from four different complexes (Molecular Biology, Signaling, Biophotonics and Disease). 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 part of the travel expenses. Highly motivated candidates 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.
You will find detailed information about the Summer School on our homepage under the following address:
The application deadline is April 15th, 2021. We would like to ask you to distribute this information at your university and to encourage young scientists to apply but please note that the implementation of the summer school may be affected by the pandemic situation.
