Join the Graduate School of Life Sciences
Interdisciplinary research training is the key to the success of tomorrow's life scientists.
The University of Würzburg provides a world class environment of research institutions, which have a long and successful tradition of co-operation across faculties.
The GSLS results from a common initiative of the Faculties of Biology, Medicine, Chemistry and
Pharmacy, Physics, and Philosophy. It is this interdisciplinary spirit that propelled Würzburg to among the top four German universities in the Life Sciences (DFG funding atlas).
As a doctoral researcher you will benefit from this proven excellence in research. The GSLS sets standards and assures the quality of research training for the more than 300 German and international doctoral researchers under its auspices. Our Graduate School will prepare you for a successful career in academia or industry by a curriculum custom-tailored to your needs.
A prime indicator of the quality of research training in Würzburg is the fact that the GSLS was among a group of just six Life Science-related Graduate Schools in Germany that gained financial support by the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal and State Governments in 2006. In 2012 the GSLS succeeded again with its renewal proposal for the next five years.
Following the successful workshop in 2012, the faculty of Biology hosts another summer school on Modern Methods in Infection Biology in the week from 10th until the 13th of September 2013. Registration is open now.

The Master of Science study program "FOKUS Life Sciences" was positively evaluated. This program is linked with the GSLS, leading excellent students directly from the Bachelor to the PhD, including a MSc degree in the process.
Prof. Serretti - a world renowned expert on genetics and pharmacogenetics in psychiatry - visits the University of Würzburg for a lecture on Pharmacogenetics, followed by a 90-minute workshop on scientific writing.
