The annual Vienna Biocenter (VBC) Summer School is a 10-week research and training opportunity for approx. 20 undergraduate students, beginning at the end of June 2017. The VBC summer school is an initiative of the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP), and is run in conjunction with its partner institutes at the Vienna Biocenter: the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA), the Max Perutz Laboratories (MFPL), and the GMI (Gregor Mendel Institute).
The VBC summer school aims to bring together a diverse and international group of students and give them the opportunity to work side-by-side with leading researchers in a dynamic scientific environment. The school also includes a bi-weekly lecture series given by faculty, an energetic social calendar, and a scientific symposium at its close.
Successful applicants will be provided with accommodation, a stipend of EUR800/month, and travel expenses to and from Vienna.
We are seeking applicants who have completed a minimum of two years of university education in any area of the natural sciences. Most importantly, we seek applications from students with an intense curiosity and passion for science.
