These are the friends of BIF-IGS:

BIF-IGS cooperates intensively with other Graduate Schools.

HIDSS4Health: Helmholtz Information & Data Science School for Health

HIDSS4Health offers a structured doctoral training program embedded in a highly interdisciplinary research environment, bringing together experts from the data and life sciences.


IHRS BioSoft (FZ Jülich): 
International Helmholtz Research School of Biophysics and Soft Matter

The International Helmholtz Research School of Biophysics and Soft Matter (IHRS BioSoft) provides excellent research opportunities for PhD projects. The aim of our complementary research training is to offer a curriculum at the interfaces between biology, chemistry, and physics.


GRK 2039: Molecular Architectures for fluorescent Cell Imaging

The core idea of our RTG is to merge organic chemistry, chemical biology, biophysics, theoretical/physical chemistry, and cell biology to develop tailor-made fluorescent probes that enable researchers to address important biological questions by optical imaging.


HEiKA Graduate School on Functional Materials:

The HEiKA Graduate School on “Functional Materials” is a central structural element of the Cluster of Excellence “3D Matter made to Order (3DMM2O)”


KSOP: Karlsruhe School for Optics & Photonics

The Karlsruhe School of Optics & Photonics (KSOP), Graduate School at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, provides both multidisciplinary Master and Doctorate Programs in Optics & Photonics taught in English.


GRK 2450: Tailored Scale-Bridging Approaches to Computational Nanoscience

Many interesting research problems, integrate a broad range of time-scales and being recursive in nature, i.e. events on a longer time scale determine structure and function on a short time-scale. In this RTG we want to systematically investigate problems, which are not addressable by standard tools from the quantum chemistry toolbox such as conformationally gated biochemical reactions in proteins.
