Austria: Vienna Biocenter PhD Scholarship in Molecular Life Sciences

Overview

The Vienna BioCenter is a campus of scientific excellence. Four world-class research institutes in the modern, fun city Vienna make up the VBC.

Research at the VBC covers a range of topics in modern biological sciences, including gene regulation, cell division, neural circuits, and evolutionary genomics. The VBC PhD programme supports its students in their scientific explorations, providing state-of-the-art equipment, expert scientific advisors, and extensive scientific and administrative support. The VBC PhD programme is the place for young researchers to put their creativity, ideas, and enthusiasm to work, addressing fundamental questions about how life works.

The Vienna Biocenter International PhD programme in Molecular Life Sciences is the longest running and most successful PhD programme at the Vienna Biocenter. Successful candidates in this programme have access to excellent facilities and an internationally competitive stipend.



Language

The working language on campus is English. All seminars, lectures, meetings, and internal communications are in English.

Vienna is an international city. It hosts offices of the UN, OPEC, and numerous international companies, meaning that English is widely spoken. Shopping, doctor visits, taxi rides, and just about all aspects of daily life can be conducted in English.

But if you want to learn or improve your German, several language courses are offered on campus free of charge.

The salaries offered to VBC students are among the highest for PhD programmes in Europe. Vienna is not an expensive city to live in. Students can live comfortably – many even save money – during their time at the VBC.
