The Spemann Gradute School of Biology and Medicine (SGBM) in Freiburg is in the process of recruiting again 10-12 excellent PhD students. Since Adelaide has become a recent partner of Freiburg, it would be nice if candidates with master or bachelor of honours degrees (or those getting the degrees soon) of your University apply to these positions. We now also have a fast-track option where candidates enrolled in the frist master year of your University (but who do not yet have a master degree) can start a PhD if successfully recruited (they can start the PhD after 1 year master and get the master degree during the first six month of the PhD thesis).

The candidates apply online under www.sgbm.uni-freiburg.de till March 29, 2015 with all the documents necessary. We will create a short list and invite ca. 30 candidates to Freiburg by the end of June. PhD thesis starts in September 2015. The fellows will receive a stipend by SGBM for 3 years.

To get a flyer with more information please email christiane.niess@adelaide.edu.au, phone 8313 3248. Students can also contact Dr Christiane Niess to discuss this opportunity.
