The Graduate School Life Science Munich (LSM) offers an international doctoral program to motivated and academically qualified next-generation researchers at one of Europe’s top Universities. LSM members are internationally recognized for their innovative research approaches and technologies, they are aiming to answer essential questions relevant to basic and applied biological and biochemical research. Within their own research group or in collaboration with a specialized research group on campus, LSM doctorates are given the opportunity to learn and command a variety of techniques. Furthermore, the graduate program holds various workshops and seminars that strengthen and prepare doctorates for a successful career as scientists.
With over 40 research groups from the Faculty of Biology and the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy of Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) München, the LSM in its prominent location within the HighTechCampus in Martinsried south of Munich contributes to the enormous possibilities for support, interdisciplinarity and constant scientific input from the surrounding laboratories.
Available research projects cover areas from Biochemistry, Biophysics, Cell and Developmental Biology, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Pharmacology, and Plant Sciences.
All courses, lectures, and seminars at the LSM are held in English. Thus, selected candidates have to be fluent in both written and spoken English.
Successful students of the graduate school will be awarded a doctoral degree (Dr. rer. nat.) by the LMU after 3 to 4 years. Candidates need to prove a strong qualitative background as well as interest and ability to conduct independent research.
The doctoral program is open for students who hold either a master´s or diploma degree, as well as to exceptional candidates with a four years bachelor's degree (with written thesis).
LSM calls for doctoral applications on a yearly basis, open from the 1st of October until the 30th of November 2020. Applicants are selected in a multi-step process through our online portal, thus ensuring openness and fairness throughout the application procedure. Every complete submission is evaluated by the LSM coordinator. Applications will be independently reviewed by several faculty members of the LSM Graduate School. Based on academic qualifications, research experience, motivation, scientific background, and letters of recommendation, candidates will be selected to participate in the LSM Interview week. After a thorough evaluation through the LSM committee board members, successful candidates will be invited to join the LSM Graduate School.
