Since 2003 the International Max Planck Research School for Environmental, Cellular and Molecular Microbiology (IMPRS-Mic) offers an international PhD programme with excellent research opportunities for outstanding young scientists from all over the world. The programme provides interdisciplinary training in modern microbiology, state-of-the-art research facilities, and mentoring by world class scientists. As an IMPRS student you will be given the freedom to embark on your scientific journey!

The school is a close collaboration between the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology and the Philipps-Universität Marburg. Research projects can be undertaken in laboratories at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology, the LOEWE Center for Synthetic Microbiology (SYNMIKRO), or the Philipps-Universität Marburg. The PhD will be awarded by the Philipps-Universität Marburg.

IMPRS-Mic offers a structured three-year PhD programme, which rests on three pillars:

  1. A cutting-edge PhD project
  2. A structured curriculum with seminars, lectures, courses, workshops, scientific conferences, and retreats
  3. Supervision and mentoring by top scientists   Marburg is a town of excellent research. In the 2015 the DFG (German Research Foundation) - Förderatlas showed that the University of Marburg is very successful in acquiring funding. Marburg has also a rich history of research, so far 11 Nobel prize winners and 11 Leibniz prize winners, most of them from the life science area, are associated with Marburg. One of them, Rudolf Kurt Thauer is the founding director of the Max Planck Institute in Marburg. Over the last years, the LOEWE Research Center for Synthetic Microbiology (SYNMIKRO) was founded in Marburg as joint project between the university and the Max Planck Institute. In the following years the Max Planck Institute is growing with a renovation and a building extension and together with SYNMIKRO there will be a new building for this joint venture with the university.
