Career Prospects

Graduate Programs in Biosciences

Almost all our graduates do a PhD after their graduation and there are plenty of possibilities here in Heidelberg to continue into this direction, with several larger graduate schools like the Heidelberg Biosciences International Graduate School (HBIGS) and the DKFZ International PhD Program.

However there are also other options. For a complete overview check the website of the PhD Office of the Faculty of Biosciences.

Careers in Industry

Several of our alumni switched to industry, either after their MSc degree or after their PhD and are now working at big pharmaceutical companies like Roche, AbbVie and Abbott or mid-size companies like Ipsen and Vetter.
