Collaborative Projects - Joint PhD positions

Parts of the administrative budget will be allocated to support 5 joint PhD positions across different Centers and groups. These positions were distributed on a competitive basis upon collaborative project proposals from participating AMPro labs. Research on Ageing is an emerging, innovative and socially central topic, where specifically trained young scientists are an essential resource. By recruiting new talents into this consortium we will provide a pioneering platform with critical mass to promote specific training modalities.
