It is most important for candidates to understand that CIHLMU is not procuring research projects. CIHLMU is an institution that provides the framework for doing research, offering founded knowledge and experience, based on a long history of research conducted within the Department of Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine and the further departments at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU). In two module blocks held in Munich at LMU, candidates will be provided up to date and state of the art knowledge, making use of outstanding facilities available at LMU.
Applicants will be required to have their research project at hand upon application, possibly in their countries of origin or residence and to be in contact with their future local supervisor already. Our program will thus mostly, but not exclusively, address candidates that are already incorporated in institutional research activity and who are willing to focus their research work in order to get an academic degree: their PhD. At the same time, CIHLMU does not provide any research funding.
