DKFZ PhD Students Portal

Welcome to the community of PhD Students at the German Cancer Research Center !


We warmly welcome you to to the webpages of the PhD Students at the DKFZ (German Cancer Research Center)! We are a young and international team working in various fields related to cancer. Here you may find information about the PhD student teams and their activities, as well as contact information.

Are you planning to do your PhD studies at the DKFZ? You've just entered the DKFZ minutes ago and already found that page? You only know Heidelberg central station and the way to the DKFZ but nothing else? Check out the Beginners Guide!

You are already registered as PhD fellow and you heard rumours of great teams and a lot of fun? Check out following activities!

The guys who were around and helped you at the Selection Round represent the Welcome Team. They organized the fun and recreational part of the hard days and also keep the guides in the Beginners section updated.

You are an expert in organizing terrific parties, BBQs, etc? Please visit Party Team.

You want to combine science and well-being? Then you can find information on the Pizza & Talk Team page.

It is definitely not a boring conference but a perfect opportunity to meet other DKFZ PhD students in a relaxed atmosphere: the Annual PhD Retreat in Weil der Stadt.

Did you ever asked yourself, where you can meet PhD students from the other institutes in Heidelberg? You can do it at the Heidelberg Forum for Young Life Scientists, which the Conference Team is responsible for.

For those of you, who like to write, inform people and do web-publishing, there's the Communication Team
