Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS) – University of Wuerzburg

Interdisciplinary research training is the key to the success of tomorrow's life scientists. The University of Wuerzburg provides for a world class environment of research institutions, which have a long standing 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 as well as Philosophy (Psychology). It is this interdisciplinary spirit that has propelled the University of Wuerzburg among the top 100 in the World in the Life Sciences (ARWU-LIFE 2013)

A prime indicator of the quality of research training in Wuerzburg is the fact that the GSLS was among a group of merely five life science related Graduate Schools in Germany that have secured financial support by the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal and State Governments continuously since 2006.

As a doctoral researcher you will benefit from this proven excellence. The GSLS sets standards and assures the quality of research training for the currently more than 350 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.
