Subject: Exchange between the PhD Students of the Jena School for Microbial Communication DFN-Institut: Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena
Description:The Jena School for Microbial Communication (JSMC) is funded by the German
Excellence Initiative. It conceptionally combines different research areas
(microbial communities, interactions with plant, animal and human hosts and
environmental interactions) to a comprehensive picture of microbial communication
(www.jsmc.uni-jena.de). JSMC is an ambitious Graduate School prospectively
comprising 150 PhD students who will be educated in a structured,
interdisciplinary training program based on top-level fundamental research.
Four faculties of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, six non-university
research institutions as well as twelve partner companies are participating in
this cutting edge research and training program which includes an innovative
PhD program, career development and intensive sociocultural care. Three embedded
existing Research Training Groups as well as twelve other cooperative research
projects are engaged to incorporate novel research areas to achieve a complete
view of microbial communication.
