    The International Max Planck Research School for Evolutionary Biology (IMPRS EvolBio) opens its 2024 search for outstanding doctoral researchers

    IMPRS EvolBio is a joint initiative between the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, Christian Albrechts University in Kiel, and the GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research. Our graduate school offers a doctoral program that delivers outstanding opportunities for young scientists. It provides an internationally competitive research environment with state-of-the-art facilities. Participating groups work on a broad variety of scientific topics including molecular evolution, experimental evolution, behavioural ecology, ecological/evolutionary genetics, theoretical and mathematical biology, and major evolutionary transitions.

    The program includes a six-month training period followed by a doctoral project of three years. The doctoral researchers are mentored by their principal investigator and an individual thesis advisory committee. Training includes seminars, courses (including soft-skill courses), workshops, an annual retreat, opportunities to attend international meetings and visit collaborating laboratories. Financial support is provided throughout the program. The language of the graduate school is English. German language courses for beginners are offered to foreign researchers.

    This year, IMPRS EvolBio offers up to 12 doctoral projects located at the MPI-EB Plön, all are three and a half years fixed-term positions at 65% TVöD E13. The program will start in September 2024. Motivated, career-minded, and curiosity-driven individuals with a passion for evolutionary biology are welcome to apply now.

    For information about our graduate program, open projects and application details see We request to contact the designated principal investigators by 1st February. The closing date for the formal applications is 18th February.
