Welcome!

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute (HKI) – in cooperation with the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU) and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology (MPI CE) are offering an international graduate program. The International Leibniz Research School (ILRS Jena) gives PhD students the possibility to prepare for their PhD exam in an ambitious program providing excellent research conditions. The courses of the ILRS Jena are held in English. The program of study of the ILRS Jena can be downloaded here.

The International Leibniz Research School for Microbial and Biomolecular Interactions is open to obtain a doctoral degree in biology, biochemistry, pharmacy and other life sciences.  

Mission
In their natural habitat microorganisms form a multi-organismic network. Relations between interacting members could be of commensal, mutualistic, symbiotic or parasitic nature. The underlying mechanisms of communication between organisms of various developmental levels are poorly understood. The outstanding microbiological community in Jena (Germany) closely works together to advance basic research in biological communication. The program covers the main topics

  • interactions between microorganisms
  • host / microbial pathogen interactions
  • role of networks and bioinformatics.

For further details please check the Research statement.

 

The ILRS is part of the “Jena School for Microbial Communication” (JSMC) which has been established in 2006 as an umbrella organisation of three existing Research Training Groups. The JSMC is funded by the German Excellence Initiative.
