Currently more than 100 PhD students from more than 50 countries pursue their research at the Max Perutz Labs. We support their curiosity and dedicated work by providing excellent facilities, mentoring, and high-quality seminars with renowned international experts from all fields of molecular biology. Student organized campus-wide symposia, journal clubs, PhD awards, and social events foster a vibrant atmosphere at the Vienna BioCenter campus.
The participating research institutes on campus commit to a shared vision and provide an outstanding education for ambitious and motivated students. The new Vienna BioCenter PhD Program has evolved from the VBC PhD Program, which started in 1994, and the Max Perutz Labs Doctoral School “Molecules of Life”.
