Doctorate in Environmental Sciences in Europe

See PhD Programs in Environmental Sciences in Europe 2018

Environmental Sciences

A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities. Once one attains a PhD he or she may often be referred to as a doctor.

An environmental sciences program prepares students to work in fields connected with maintaining, preserving, protecting and studying the environment. Possible career options after the completion of a program include zoologist, meteorologist, soil and plant scientist, ecologist, biochemist and government regulator.

In all, there are over 4000 Higher Education Institutions in Europe offering a wide range of courses at Bachelor, Masters and Doctorate level. With more and more of these organizations offering English as the language of education for at least some of their degree programs, universities in Europe are now of higher quality than ever before. Universities in Europe offer a friendly welcome to foreign students and to give a course of knowledge that meets their profession needs in today’s global demand.

PhD in Environmental informatics

Environmental informatics is understood to be an integrated subject consisting of bio-, eco-and geoinformatics in addition to scientific computing. By using the tools of informatics on this subject, anyone can study or model objects, structures, regulatory networks, processes (signals, materials, and information flows) at various scales and integration levels. Under the umbrella of environmental informatics, the transfer of knowledge about biological, ecological and environmental systems and the system-orientated integration of such will be improved and promoted using modern methods and technology. This important integrative approach at the system level is effective due to the efficient academic and education-related measures set up with the establishment of the MSc and PhD programmes in environmental informatics and their embedment in GAUSS and in the research landscape Göttingen. The excellent biological, ecosystemic, environmental and mathematical research in Göttingen requires the establishment of a corresponding integrated Master and PhD programme in environmental informatics, from which important innovative scientific impulses and contributions can be expected....

Ph.D. in Evolution of Ecosystems and their Protection

The main focus of the program is understanding of the historical development of ecosystems before significant disturbances caused by human activities. The program accentuates a palaeological approach that corresponds very well with methods of a recent ecological research. The combination of both approaches allows recognizing the extent of the damage, the speed of their changes, and the resilience and recovery of ecosystems, too. This information is an important starting point for modern approaches in the nature conservation, which is the second area of the study program.

The graduate study comprises two parts: a study part and a research part. A plan of the study is prepared by the supervisor and should be approved by a committee.... [-]
