"I did my PhD at PSB from Oct. 2011 to Jun. 2016. It was a great period during my entire study life. I have learnt more than scientific thinking and effective working, such as how to live a colorful life beside work. This period certainly will guide my future research career and my life."

"At PSB I was surrounded by amazing science and fantastic people from all over the world, and I made great friends there. Now, even from as far as Australia, I’m still in touch with them and with PSB’s inspiring research."
Research Fellow, CSIRO Synthetic Biology Future Science Platform University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia
"The combination of having excellent facilities and a great atmosphere makes PSB a place where I could develop and pursue my own scientific questions. The experiences gained here during my PhD made it possible to continue academic research in plant sciences."
Postdoctoral fellow, Gregor Mendel Institute, Vienna, Austria
"PSB is one of the world’s best plant research institutes. It’s my fortune that I had my four years PhD time at PSB. The time I spent at PSB not only increased my experience and knowledge in plant research but is also one of the best memories in my life."
Assistant professor at Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University in Fuzhou, China
"During my time at PSB I had the chance to experience ideal conditions for doing research. I could get in contact with the elite of European plant scientists and I established connections and friendships in the science community that I keep till today."
PI at the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic
"PSB is a very international institute that could be considered as an ‘influencer’ in plant sciences. At PSB I can learn new state-of-the-art techniques in plant biotechnology and how to make use of novel technologies. During my PhD I can also easily enlarge my network, helping my future professional career"
"At PSB, I am surrounded by talented, passionate scientists, which helps me to grow as a scientist myself. The monthly seminars and the different research group within the institute enable me to develop scientific knowledge broader than my own research topic"
