Applications invited for the 2023 FIMM-EMBL & DSHealth International PhD Programme

The call for applications for Doctoral Researchers in the fields of molecular medicine and life sciences is open until February 5, 2023.

As part of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine and in collaboration with the Doctoral School in Health Sciences (DSHealth) at the University of Helsinki, we welcome applications for the 2023 FIMM-EMBL & DSHealth International PhD Programme.

We have four openings for doctoral researchers who show outstanding potential to become independent researchers and who will significantly benefit from the FIMM-EMBL & DSHealth International PhD rotational training.

Outstanding doctoral researchers will be recruited to the rotation programme where they will work with 2-3 different research groups during a 6-9 month period prior to selecting a research group in which to remain for their complete PhD studies. This programme provides an exciting opportunity to explore different research topics and working environments as well as learn a variety of science and technologies, making connections within and beyond the institute.  

Detailed information regarding the organisations participating, position descriptions, research areas, qualifications and application and selection process can be found at the FIMM website.


PhD students in the Rotation Programme:

  • Gain formal research experience before the doctoral programme period
  • Diversify and deepen scientific knowledge
  • Develop and refine scientific interests
  • Receive early-career training with feedback in scientific communication
  • Foster a best match with a research mentor(s)
