Doctoral studies in Sydney

Charité and the University of Sydney enjoy a close working relationship in the area of clinically relevant laboratory-based basic research into ‘glucocorticoids, cytokines and bone’. The following opportunities are available to medical students from Charité:

Undergraduate opportunities: Students may opt to work on their medical dissertations (a requirement of the Dr. med. doctoral degree), but some of the data used will need to be collected in Sydney. All students are guaranteed qualified supervision. Students will also receive standard doctoral scholarship funding (EUR 600/month), which is provided by Charité, and a contribution towards flight costs, provided by the Sydney laboratory. The minimum duration is two semesters.

Postgraduate opportunities: There are a number of different programs available which are aimed at supporting young postgraduate medical students wishing to study for a PhD. Possible commencement dates are either April or October. If you are interested in one of these programs, or if you would like to find out more about interesting laboratory opportunities or working as part of a highly skilled team in either Berlin or Sydney, please send an email (specifying relevant details) to:

Prof. Dr. Frank Buttgereit, Charité − Universitätsmedizin Berlin
Prof. Dr. Markus Seibel, University of Sydney, Australia

Please ensure that you copy your emails to both of these email addresses. 

Research visits to Boston

The Berlin-Boston research exchange program offers students the opportunity to conduct research at Massachusetts General Hospital. Funding support is limited, covering only the cost of flights and research materials. Accommodation and other costs must be covered by the student.
