2020/2021

The Institute of Molecular BioMedicine is one of the most successful institutes in Slovakia in the field of science and research. As an interdisciplinary institute, we are open to students from various fields of study. The example is our PhD students who are graduates of various fields (Genetics, Molecular Biology, Anthropology, Animal Physiology and Ethology or Biomedical Physics).

 

We require from PhD students:

  • decency
  • weekly reports
  • publishing activity (3 first-author publications at the end of the study)
  • foreign scientific internship

 

As part of the PhD study, we offer:

  • work in a great, young and productive team
  • we offer the opportunity to pursue a scientific career (USA, Scandinavia, Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and others)
  • foreign research internship at prestigious scientific institutions, within Europe but also in America
  • participation in domestic and foreign scientific conferences

 

As part of the PhD study, our students have the opportunity to obtain:

  • UK grants (UK Youth Grants)
  • financial support (up to 3000 €) from the Faculty of Medicine for short-term (3 months) mobility within Europe
  • rewards for publishing activities (from 250 € depending on the quality of the journal)

 

Another advantage is a scholarship of € 807.50 per month (before the dissertation exam) and € 940.50 per month (after the dissertation exam).
