Vienna Biocenter PhD Programme
International PhD Programme in Molecular Life Sciences
[closest deadline: 15 May 2011]
A PhD at the VBC usually lasts three or four years. The initial contract for incoming PhD students is for three years. If students are making progress in their research and would like to stay in the lab for an additional year, the thesis committee can grant an extension. All students are expected to complete their degrees within four years.
Getting into the VBC PhD programme requires three things: a written application, a personal interview, and a PhD position offer from a VBC group leader.
