Welcome to BioInterfaces International Graduate School

The BioInterfaces International Graduate School (BIF-IGS) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) provides a structured PhD program for doctoral researchers from Natural, Artificial and Cognitive Information Processing (NACIP) and Materials Systems Engineering (MSE), two research programs of the Helmholtz-association. It aims to attract outstanding students and to offer research opportunities, education and training in the trans- and multi-disciplinary research areas of both programs, which encompasses a breadth of disciplines including biology, chemistry, physics, engineering and informatics.

This training allows students to prepare for future careers in professional fields such as the health sciences, biotechnology, physics, chemistry and environmental science. Our students gain a unique experience by working in a stimulating environment of transdisciplinary research, using state-of-the-art technology.
