Career prospects


MScMM students in the lab


The MSc Molecular Medicine degree may lead to a PhD position in basic research, or a career at a company or institute as a life science researcher at the MSc level.    


  • Graduates with a background in medicine are likely to become successful clinical researchers who are actively involved in the initiation and supervision of translational clinical research projects.
  • Graduates with a biomedical background appear to be preferred and qualified candidates for PhD positions within Erasmus MC and other high-ranking and international research institutions; a few recent examples outside Erasmus MC are the Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine in Göttingen (D), VIB Flemish Institute for Biotechnology (B), the National Institutes of Health (USA), Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard (USA), and the University of Manchester (UK).
