Application is OPEN

The number of participants is limited to 24 PhD students or post-docs. Participants will be primarily selected based on the suitability of the course for developing the project of the participants and their lab towards Systems Biology. A maximum of two students per research group or laboratory may be accepted. We strive for a 50/50 mix of participants with experimental and theoretical background.

It is expected that participants take part in all course activities. Registration for only parts of the course is not possible. However, the lecture and seminar programme of the course will be offered to students from Göteborg as a course within their post-graduate education. Those students will register for the course via a different channel – do not apply via this page!

After the application deadline, participants will be selected based on their submitted documentation. This application package must include:

Name, full address/affiliation, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail address.
A photocopy of the passport or other suitable identity documentation
A max. three-page complete curriculum vitae, incl. publications.
A max. ½ page justification for participating in the course with reference to the research performed in the home laboratory.
A max. one page justification for participation with reference to the own project and the own career development.
A max. one page abstract for the seminar to be presented during the course.
Two letters of recommendation, where one letter should ideally be provided by a person outside of the applicant’s laboratory (PDFs sent by e-mail to, by the certifier).

A max. one-page letter justifying their application for support
