The interest for becoming a PhD student is a crucial step towards your future life as a scientist. When applying to the IGBMC International PhD Programme you select two scientific departments you are most interested in. In addition, feel free to indicate the research teams you would like to work in.
IGBMC thesis subjects currently proposed :
IGBMC’s PhD Programme is based on a three year – intensive training which comprises dedicated research investigations and active participation in diverse lectures and practicals.
IGBMC offers cutting-edge training in a large variety of topics covering Development & Stem Cells, Functional Genomics & Cancer, Integrated Structural Biology, and Translational Medecine & Neurogenetics. Students will conduct their research in one of the 47 laboratories of the Institute. Close collaborations with other research institutions in the “Parc d’Innovation” such as the trinational biotechnology school ESBS (Ecole Supérieure de Biotechnologie Strasbourg), the Faculty of Pharmacy as well as ISIS (Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires) and the University of Strasbourg at large, contribute to synergistic and collegial interactions within and beyond IGBMC.
During three years, PhD students will:
• acquire the skills needed to pursue a successful career in biology
• be able to attend numerous first-class seminars given by internationally renowned scientists and discuss with them
• experience the everyday excitement of working in a laboratory in an intellectually stimulating and dynamic environment
The duration of the PhD studies is normally 3 years. Registration for a fourth year can be granted by the University of Strasbourg if deemed necessary.
The team leader will be the main student supervisor and PhD mentor. In addition, the student’s progress will be monitored by a thesis committee, composed of the PhD mentor, one or more IGBMC faculty members and an external faculty member.
During the course of your PhD, you will acquire the skills you need to pursue a successful career in biology. Complementary to your lab work, you will attend lectures and courses on scientific and socio-professional topics. Students are required to validate a total of 108 hours in order to be admitted for the thesis defense by the Doctoral School of the University of Strasbourg. This entails 54 hours of scientific courses on at least three different topics and including a presentation (oral or poster) in a national or international conference. A scientific course/module has to last at least 6 hours in order to qualify. In addition, 54 hours of socio-professional courses on at least three different themes are required.

IGBMC’s PhD Committee has developed a dedicated onsite training programme. Courses taught by IGBMC faculty members or heads of platforms will provide you with the latest developments in biology or state-of-the-art technologies. They can be validated with the Doctoral School.
