The Friends of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) donate a PhD Award in order to support young scientists. The award honours excellent PhD theses from the field of life sciences that have been completed at a partner  university of the HZI.

The PhD Award is endowed with 1.000 Euros and is presented during the Inhoffen Lecture, which takes place once a year.

The next PhD Award will take place on the occasion of the Inhoffen Lecture on July 18, 2017, in the Forum of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research from 3 – 5:30 pm. This year’s award winners will be identified in due course.

Please address appropriate suggestions (incl. CV, reference letter, copy of the PhD thesis with date and final grade as well as a publication list) to the scientific director of the HZI, attention Mrs. Martina van Gerpen (Martina.vanGerpen@helmholtz-hzi.de) until May 15, 2017, at the latest.

Proposals can be made by all mentors who supervised a PhD in life sciences at the HZI or at a cooperating university.
