Master Molecular and Developmental Stem Cell Biology


We are pleased to announce that the 2017 recruitment of the German-Israeli Research School SignGene (Frontiers in Cell Signaling and Gene Regulation) is now open, with the application deadline set to February 21, 2017.

We are looking for highly motivated doctoral candidates with a background in biological sciences, physics, bioinformatics, or bioengineering and offer outstanding research and training opportunities in an international environment. Applications are accepted via our online portal at

Please find enclosed our advertising poster and flyer with further information which we would like to ask you to distribute to potentially interested students or contacts of yours. Thank you very much in advance!


Welcome to the website of the International Master Molecular and Developmental Stem Cell Biology at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

Stem cells have a major impact on nearly all disciplines of life sciences dealing with eukaryotic cells or organisms. Predictably, a strong demand on young scientists who are able to cope with a highly interdisciplinary approach will arise in the near future.

We want to satisfy this demand by offering a highly interdisciplinary master degree course that is oriented to cutting-edge research and current markets. The course combines traditional basic disciplines such as cell biology, histology, biochemistry and pathology with recent progress in epigenetics, bioinformatics and developmental biology to secure a broad understanding towards innovative translational approaches in medicine.

On this website you can find comprehensive information about our master course as well as a guide with information detailing how to apply. We also provide information for international students that are interested in the city of Bochum, the University and our Program. For more information please also download our brochure.
