MD fellowships

We are continuously recruiting for MD fellowships.

Medical students who are interested in the field of infection and/or immunology are offered the chance of being integrated into the research and qualification program at an early stage of their career. The fellowship comprises participation in the program for at least one year (6 months full time lab work plus lab work during semester breaks and lectures along with your studies), and participation in one annual retreat. The maximum duration of an individual MD fellowship will be 12 months. Please note that in order to participate in the program you need to take one semester off.


Medical students who would like to enter the MD program in preparation of their medical thesis should have completed their preclinical studies above average. Furthermore, you should be interested in experimental research.


Please submit your application including motivation letter and CV as one single pdf via e-mail.

For further information, please contact Ms. Dr. Eva van Well
