The Alliance Berlin-Canberra, an international PhD program on malaria research, seeks 3 highly motivated doctoral candidates to complete their 2nd generation students cohort to do a dual PhD in an international and interdisciplinary research environment. Candidates will be based at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra to conduct a collaborative research project, which involves a 1-year research stay in one of our partner labs at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
