The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program of the DSMZ

The Leibniz Institute DSMZ continues its Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. This highly competitive program is open to international applicants that hold a Ph.D. in biological sciences or bioinformatics. Fellowships offer young scientists the opportunity to join the dynamic research environment at the DSMZ, make a visible contribution towards its scientific program and develop their own career.

The program supports 2-year stipends (salary level TV-L 13) to conduct a research project in a DSMZ department of choice. Instrumentation and consumables are provided by the department hosting the applicant. Applications are invited throughout the year, are assessed by the scientific advisory board and based on its recommendations selected by the directorate of the DSMZ.

Please send your application including your curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation (max. 1 page), a description of the proposed research project (max. 3 pages) and two letters of support from previous supervisors by email to:
