12 PhD positions in the MSCA-DN Project REGENERATE-IT
Are you interested in regenerative biology? Check out our 12 fully funded PhD positions to work with leading European researchers to advance the frontiers of regenerative biology and medicine.
The REGENERATE-IT Doctoral Network, funded by the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Action(MSCA), brings together a full spectrum of disciplines – from fundamental to applied research – to train the next generation of researchers in regenerative biology and adjacent fields. It is a consortium of high-profile researchers from various universities, research institutions, and companies spanning 12 academic institutions in 10 European countries (the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Switzerland, and the UK).
We offer exceptional opportunities for promising young students to work on cutting-edge topics in regenerative biology and medicine to address the questions of how cell types and tissues are formed during regeneration and how this can be controlled and manipulated.
Keywords: Regenerative biology and medicine, tissue and organ regeneration, highly regenerative animal models (flatworms, cnidarians, crustaceans, frogs, salamanders, and zebrafish), stem cells, single-cell sequencing, live imaging.
Career Stage: Doctoral Candidates (DCs). These are 3-year PhD positions open for graduated students (Master or equivalent).
12 PhD positions in the REGENERATE-IT:
All 12 PhD positions are listed below along with their hosting institutions. An URL to the application form is also given next to the title of the project. This link will take you to the application portal of the project-hosting institution. More details on each of these positions and information about the REGENERATE-IT training program can be found on this website www.regenerate-it.eu.
Note: Some of these links are not ready yet. These will be updated as soon as they are announced by the respective institutes. Please come back and check again later.
Candidates may submit applications to different labs (up to 3 projects) within the network.
