Biology

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

For you to have the best understanding of living things and their behavior, you need a PhD in biology. The PhD in Biology will give students knowledge of research in the areas of Cell and Molecular Biology, Ecology and Evolution and Computational Biology.

Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state and a member state of the European Union. It is located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. Spanish universities regulate access to their own degrees and they fix the academic fees. They can also offer unofficial postgraduate degrees. The capital city Madrid has possibly the largest number of bars per capita of any European city and a very active nightlife.

Best PhD Programs in Biology in Spain 2017/2018. 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...
