As part of the Vienna Doctoral School “Molecules of Life” we promote interdisciplinary research and help excellent PhD students to develop into tomorrow's leading scientists.

We recruit ambitious and motivated students from all over the world and all disciplines of natural and life sciences and medicine via the general PhD selection.

As candidate you are expected to be among the top students qualified to enter a PhD Program in your home country. If you succeed and are offered a PhD position, you have to accept the post in writing within three weeks, and take up your position within six months. Depending on the affiliation of your group leader, you will be admitted either to the University of Vienna or to the Medical University of Vienna.

As soon as you agreed on a starting date with your group leader please contact the DK programme manager who will check the exact procedures for you and guide you through the registration process.
