Doctorates in Agricultural Science in Europe 2018. The International Ph.D. Programme in Agrobiodiversity is aimed at the enhancement of human resource capacities in the use and management of genetic variation in agricultural and natural systems, in order to improve the sustainability of agricultural systems and the conservation of genetic resources for the well-being of present and future generations. The Programme is structured into two curricula: Curriculum A - Plant genetic resources; Curriculum B - Functional biodiversity in agroecosystems. Research areas will include the analysis of: - Genetic variation in single genes and entire genomes of agricultural and forestry plants and their wild relatives; - Mechanisms that control the variability in genes and/or groups of genes, as those involved in resistance to pathogens and/or pests and tolerance to environmental factors; - Role of functional biodiversity in maintaining genetic diversity, including evolution and co-evolution of pests/pathogens and host plants; - Role of functional diversity, including interactions between pests/ pathogens/weeds and domesticated/volunteer/wild plants, in agroecosystem health; - Plant and crop physiology, including plant stress physiology and post-harvest physiology: - Options for applying the acquired knowledge, as a prerequisite for crop improvement, crop protection, sustainable crop/agroforestry management and multifunctional land use. The International PhD Programme in Agrobiodiversity at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna- Pisa, offers three-years scholarships to carry out advanced research activities in the field of agrobiodiversity. Our goal is to encourage innovation and technology transfer in preserving, managing and exploiting agrobiodiversity through an advanced scientific educational programme. Scholarships are preferentially awarded to students coming... [-]

Doctorates in Agricultural Science in Europe 2018. Introduction The Programme PhD in Agricultural and Forestry Research Is an official university degree of multidisciplinary character that offers to the student the possibility to choose between a wide range of subjects related to the agrarian and forestry production of Galicia and the Atlantic biogeographic region of Europe. Participants in the program are researchers from two centers of the University of A Coruña (Institute of Geology and Faculty of Sciences) and four departments of the University of Santiago de Compostela (Plant Production, Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Plant Physiology and Botany). The objective of this program is to train trained experts in agrarian, forestry and agroforestry research. The skills acquired are aimed at improving the production and the sustainability of the environment. Why study the degree This doctoral program is aimed at the analysis of the basic processes and the management of the agricultural and forestry sectors of Galicia, where these sectors are very representative for the surface it occupies and for its high productivity. This theme is addressed in the "Agrarian and Forest Research" program from different perspectives such as agricultural production, forestry production, agricultural management, forest management, pests and diseases, soil and water conservation and environmental sustainability, among others. This program provides students with advanced methodological tools for research, both basic and applied. Therefore, researchers and technicians trained in "Agrarian and Forest Research" will have solid foundations for improving productivity, taking into account economic efficiency while limiting or preventing damage to...

Programme description

This internationally designed course of study is held in English and is intended to lead graduates of agricultural science to a doctorate degree in three years. It is aimed towards German and international students with an international study focus on their research activities.In the first year of studies, the courses concentrate on modules that prepare the contents and methods of the research. In the second year, doctoral candidates may return to their home country to acquire the data necessary for their work. Field research is accompanied on site in seminars at partner universities. In the third year - back in Göttingen – the data is evaluated and the dissertation prepared. It is also possible to conduct research activities solely at the Faculty for Agricultural Sciences. During studies, two public colloquiums are specified in which the doctoral candidates introduce the status of their research work. Scientific seminars and lectures during the entire course of the programme offer a forum for the interdisciplinary exchange of all research projects. Workshops convey occupational qualifications such as teamwork, moderating or evaluations techniques.This programme is conducted in cooperation with universities abroad in Indonesia, Thailand, Cuba and Chile.For this programm, you have to enrol at Doctoral Studies for Agricultural...
