The IMPRS-TP (International Max-Planck Research School for Translational Psychiatry) is a structured Graduate Program that provides interdisciplinary training in molecular, cellular and systemic neuroscientific and psychiatric research to outstanding doctoral students. The Program exposes students to a wide range of scientific questions and methods covering the areas of molecular medicine, neuroscience, psychiatry, neuroimaging, design-based stereology and clinical studies in an environment that fosters scientific excellence and collaboration.

Special track for medical doctors

In addition to traditional PhD positions, we offer a unique integrated PhD/residence program in psychiatry for medical doctors. Highlighting the translational facet, PhD students receive insights into clinical aspects of disease and young medical doctors gain research expertise while also developing their clinical skills.
