Faculty

The faculty for our two PhD programs are internationally recognized researchers working at the cutting edge of their fields. Our research groups use a broad range of approaches, techniques and diverse model systems. 

  • Faculty for the Tübingen International PhD Program in the Biological Sciences are located at the Max-Planck Institute for Biology and the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory.
  • Faculty for the IMPRS ‘From Molecules to Organisms’ are located at the Max-Planck Institute for Biology and the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory as well as at a number of Institutes at the Eberhard-Karls University in Tübingen.

The faculty list below shows all current faculty for our PhD Programs, including information on which of the PhD Programs they are a member of, where they are based and if they are currently recruiting PhD students. You can find out more about their research and available PhD projects by selecting the faculty member of interest.
