Application Call Open!

The CLIB-Graduate Cluster Industrial Biotechnology invites applications from students with an excellent track record and an interest to pursue their doctoral studies in industrial biotechnology. Projects will start on 01 October 2011.

Successful candidates will receive a tax-free, 36-month fellowship of 1500 EUR/month, pursue a research project at one of our labs and join a network of over 90 young scientists in industrial biotechnology.

6 fellowships are available and thus not all projects will be funded. The best matches between project and candidate will be selected.

Please see our application section for more information on the projects and on how to apply.
