TU Dresden


The Dresden International PhD Program (DIPP) offers great opportunities for outstanding and enthusiastic graduates who wish to work towards a PhD in a highly interactive, interdisciplinary and international scientific community. The DIPP combines two powerful partners dedicated to first-class doctoral training at the frontier of science – the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB) awarded to the TU Dresden in the Excellence Initiative in 2006, and the International Max Planck Research School for Cell, Developmental and Systems Biology (IMPRS-CellDevoSys) implemented by the Max Planck Society in 2001.

Our research-oriented program focuses on challenging research towards a PhD degree in 4 interconnected tracks

Our expertise extends from biology, physics, and computational science to translational research in biomedicine, bioengineering, and nanotechnologies. PhD students are invited to profit from the inspiring and vibrant network formed by the closely interacting research groups, institutes, and facilities. Expert thesis supervision by a Thesis Advisory Committee, ambitious training, and exceptional student-driven activities are further hallmarks of the DIPP.

*Applications are invited twice a year, admissions are highly competitive.*PhD students typically graduate after 3.5 to 4 years at the Technische Universität Dresden, well prepared for future career steps.
