Natural Sciences

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.

Research in Natural Studies is vital to understanding how the earth works and how its various systems interact with one another. Those who study Natural Science on the doctoral level will be in a position to lead these studies. A PhD in Natural Science is the degree required for research and instruction in this area of science.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.

PhD in Bioinformatics and Genetics About the Program

Biology, biotechnology and biosciences have been rapidly developing since 2000. To handle the data produced, computer technology is required due to the excessive amount of data. Most of the recent techniques used in DNA, RNA and protein-based research is supported by bioinformatics and computer science. The computer science offers a new era for the biological sciences. For example the building block of the cell, proteins are modeled in 3D using computer; this enables the rapid and efficient identification of molecular interactions and signal transduction pathways. Similarly, mutations in the genetic sequence can be detected quite fast using the computer technology. Since the recent advancements in computational biology decreased the cost and accelerated the research processes including the drug development, the in silico studies are highly demanded in the industry....

The Master in Molecular Nanoscience and Nanotechnology constitutes the period of formation of the Doctorate in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The universities of Valencia, Alicante, Jaume I, La Laguna and Castilla La Mancha participate in this doctorate.

This doctoral program has the Mention to Excellence (MEE2011-0370) granted by the General Secretariat of Universities of the Ministry of Education according to Resolution of October 6, 2011.

In recent years, certain scientific areas such as supramolecular chemistry, molecular biology, surface physics and low temperatures have reached a remarkable development in our country. Research groups have been formed that have achieved an excellent competitive position in the international area. In addition, in a natural way, the very object of research of these disciplines has been converging towards what is called Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Of the strategic importance in ID of these areas, the fact that they have been prioritized in all the National, European and International Programs of all developed countries is a good account. In these physical areas, chemists, biologists, doctors and engineers are in charge of obtaining, manipulating, organizing, studying and taking advantage of the properties of nano-sized objects. Maintaining today and in the future a truly competitive international position in some areas of Nanoscience, however, requires a level of competence that can only be achieved with a thematic focus and with adequate training of research personnel that allows them to acquire the multidisciplinary knowledge that these areas they need....
