School of Molecular
and Theoretical Biology


Dear All,

The application call to the School of Molecular and Theoretical Biology 2020 is now closed. All complete applications with a letter of support will be evaluated by the Admissions Committee and the results will be announced individually to every applicant in approximately two months. In a few cases, the admissions committee may request an additional Skype or phone interview.

We thank all of the applicants who took the time to apply and the individuals who wrote the letters of support for their application. We are also grateful to everyone who helped spread the word about the school and the ongoing call.

The School will take place from 2 to 18 August, 2020 in Poznan (Poland) at the Faculty of Biology of Adam Mickiewicz University. SMTB is generously supported by the Zimin Foundation.

Participation is free of charge for all accepted students. It includes living expenses, medical insurance for those traveling from outside the EU and all materials required for lab work. We ask parents to cover traveling costs to Poznan where the School will take place. We realize that for some applicants the cost of transportation may be prohibitive. In that case, at the time of application we ask you to indicate that you will need additional financial aid for transportation. Should you be accepted to the School, the Zimin Foundation will offer partial or, in exceptional cases, the entire cost of getting to our school.

Lodging will be organized in one of the dormitories of the Adam Mickiewicz University with faculty and students living in the same building.

More details about this season in the form of answers to some frequently asked questions can be found on our website. Information about financial support can be found here.

The School of Molecular and Theoretical Biology does not discriminate, in the admission process or otherwise, on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age, sexual orientation, disability or any other potentially discriminatory factors or circumstances.

We strive to present an equal opportunity for all applicants.
