Jobs & Careers

Promoting young scientists in the field of cancer research is a central concern of our research institute. Closely networked with the university environment, we actively promote academic training programs for scientists and physicians in pediatric oncology. Through the graduate school of the Leibniz Institute for Experimental Virology, the graduate school of the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Natural Sciences of the University of Hamburg and the PhD program of the Faculty of Medicine of the university, PhD students are integrated into an interdisciplinary network. With our Juli Harnack Scholarship, we fund dissertations in the field of pediatric oncology. Clinician scientists also have the opportunity to work on research projects at our research institute for one to two years or on a part-time basis, alongside their work as physicians (Clinician Scientist Program).
