Are you an outstanding and enthusiastic Bachelor's or Master's student looking for a research internship at the forefront of science? Then you should consider the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) for your  thesis project or your Erasmus placement.

At IMB, you will receive excellent scientific & practical training in molecular biology while conducting cutting-edge research in an interdisciplinary & international scientific community. You will work in one of our research groups, which offer projects on:

  • Ageing, Developmental Biology & Disease
  • RNA Biology
  • DNA Repair & Genome Stability
  • Gene Regulation & Epigenetics
  • Computational Biology & Bioinformatics
  • Proteostasis & Phase Separation

Working on these projects, you will acquire excellent practical skills and hands-on training from leading scientists in techniques such as CRISPR/Cas genome editing, next-generation sequencing (NGS) and modeling of gene networks. In addition, you will have the opportunity to attend lectures and seminars by scientists who are leaders in their field, and will receive training in valuable professional skills, e.g. presentation skills.
You will also be integrated in our lively and international research community, and will network with local PhD students and postdocs at our social events.
