The international programme on Wood Biology and Technology is a three-year study which leads to a Doctoral degree. The intensive, research-oriented Ph.D. programme is taught by internationally respected scientists.It is designed for highly qualified students who have studied forestry, wood sciences, biology, biochemistry, microbiology, chemistry etc. To assure a high standard individual training, the number of participants in the programme is limited to 12 students per year.Within the PhD-programme every student mainly works on his or her special research project. He or she becomes part of one of these science groups and is supervised by one of the leading professors. According to the new study regulations, each student has two additional tutors (professors) who usually become the co-examiners at the oral exam. PhD-students are entitled to suggest these two persons for this task. One of these persons can be a professor at another university.The students are expected to be able to work and research independently and finally present a major scientific contribution to their field of specialization. Aside from research work successful applicants have to take part in lessons and practical courses which shall prepare them for leading management positions in the woodworking industry and in research institutes. All compulsory courses are taught in English. The programme is a member of the "Georg-August University School of Science" (GAUSS).... [-]

Ph.D. in Computer Science (PCS)
The “Ph.D. Programme in Computer Science” (PCS) is a Ph.D. programme offered by the graduate school of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics: Georg-August University School of Science (GAUSS). PCS was created by the participating institutions of the Center for Computational Sciences and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen in 2005 with the mission to provide high-quality Ph.D. education on a high scientific level within three years. The PCS programme includes lectures, seminars, and methods courses. In addition, PCS encourages to participate in international conferences or workshops. PCS also emphasizes soft skills such as teamwork, problem-solving and moderation techniques. The Ph.D. candidates are obliged to take part in tutoring activities.Each PCS applicant needs to choose a research area from a computer science related research group, e.g. Center for Computational Sciences or Institute of Computer Science. Afterwards, a related supervisor from the list of eligible examiners needs to be found, which is normally one of the group leaders of the chosen research group.PCS is open to students from Germany and from abroad who hold a Master's degree in Computer Sciences (or equivalent). After the successful completion of the PCS programme, the international degree of Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy) or alternatively the degree of Dr. rer. nat. (Doctor Rerum Naturalium) will be awarded.... [-]
