Molecular Sciences

One must accomplish two things when earning a PhD. First one must understand a particular subject thoroughly. Secondly, one must extensively in knowledge about that subject.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.

Research topics include biomolecular structure and dynamics, biological membranes, motor proteins and pattern formation in systems of interacting cells, neuronal information processing, and hydrodynamics and pattern formation of complex fluids.The program offers cutting-edge advanced microscopy courses and teaches the basics of new cutting-edge techniques essential for studying life processes in combination with quantitative physical approaches and synthetic strategies. An important aim is to overcome traditional barriers between disciplines and expose graduate students to physics, chemistry and biology for a deeper understanding of all areas preparing students for increasingly interdisciplinary life sciences....

The PhD programme "Molecular Sciences and Biotechnology in Crop Production“ forms part of the "Georg-August University School of Science (GAUSS)” graduate school. The interdisciplinary programme is conducted by seven different departments from the participating faculties of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology, Agricultural Sciences and Biology and is open to PhD candidates with a university Masters degree or diploma in the area of life or environmental sciences, including agricultural and forestry sciences. Students are given the opportunity to conduct an independent research project in their specialist area. In addition, the programme encompasses lectures, seminars, method courses and language and professional skills courses. Based on this spectrum of courses, students can compile their own individual course of studies. Support in the selection of courses and the related administration is provided by the programme coordinator. The programme takes a period of three years to complete. The PhD dissertation can be submitted in English or in German either in the traditional form of a dissertation or as a cumulative collection of several publications. Following the successful defence of the dissertation (viva), the academic title of Ph.D or Dr. rer.nat will be awarded. All courses and seminars are conducted in English. Candidates interested in applying for the programme should contact the coordination office. Application Potential applicants should hold a Master of Science (M.Sc.) or an equivalent academic degree from the fields of life or environmental sciences, including forestry or agricultural sciences (agricultural sciences, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, forestry sciences etc.). Candidates whose first language is not English must also be able to demonstrate their proficiency in English. The application form can be downloaded from the website. Please send all documents outlined in the application form to the coordination office. If you have any further questions regarding the programme, please contact the programme coordinator. The following documents are required for applications: application form transcripts for all courses completed at university (in English or German) certified copies of the relevant university degrees (in English or German) TOEFL (or equivalent proof of proficiency in English) [-]
