I have been working at Technische Universität Dresden as a contractor for more than 3 yearsPros
The molecular biosciences provide unique prospects to enhance tissue and organ regeneration. Our goal is to develop advanced treatments for haemato-oncological, neurodegenerative, diabetic, bone and cardiovascular diseases.
Dresden has outstanding expertise in the life science disciplines (medicine, molecular cell- and developmental biology, stem cell research, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics) and engineering (tissue engineering, biomaterials science, chemistry, nanotechnology), providing a fertile ground for a broad interdisciplinary effort towards developing regenerative therapies. Over 150 partners from science, economy, administration, culture, and finance from Biopolis, an innovative network for biomedical research. Scientific integration and synergy within the Biopolis is facilitated by the close location of participating institutes.
The DFG Research Center and Cluster of Excellence of the Technische Universität Dresden is capitalizing on basic and clinical research in regenerating model organisms and in patients to understand stem cell recruitment, activation, proliferation, homing and differentiation, and will apply this knowledge to control these cellular processes using genetics, surface engineering and micro devices in order to elicit regenerative responses.Cons

Invitations are sent approximately 6 weeks in advance.
The interview week in Dresden
During the interview week, each candidate conducts several interviews with faculty members to discuss research experience and interests. The interviews with group leaders result in a first assessment of candidates. All applicants proceed to a final interview with a Selection Committee, which consists of several faculty members. Taking the assessment of interviewing faculty members into account, the Selection Committee evaluates the overall qualification of the candidate, and recommends to the Dean whom to admit to the program.
Offers of admission
Offers of admission to the DIGS-BB are made by the end of the selection week. Admission is granted by the Dean following the recommendation of the selection committee. The offers include in general the affiliation to a specific PhD program and a research group. The individual starting date will be agreed with the primary supervisor. For the spring selection, the latest starting date is October 1st of the year of admission. For the fall selection, the latest starting date is February 1st of the year following the year of admission.Interview Questions
