Biological sciences

Duration of the programme: 4 years (8 semesters) 

Program description: 

The programme aims at teaching doctoral students modern methods, techniques and research methodology for the implementation of acquired knowledge and skills for PhD projects, preparation of new research projects and commercialization of research results. The program includes obligatory courses, highlighting basic and applied sciences, and lectures by visiting professors from various fields. The most important topics covered by the study program include: advanced methods of molecular biology (in genome and proteome research), modern microscopic techniques of cells and tissues imaging, preparation of scientific projects and commercialization of research results, advanced statistical methods in scientific research, teaching at a university, seminars and professional practice.

The program provides PhD students with the knowledge, skills and competences to develop their own ideas and concepts, preparation of new research projects, as well as to solve problems creatively.

Career opportunities:

The graduates have the knowledge and skills in the field of biology as well as academic teaching.

The graduates of the PhD programme will be well prepared to take postdoc trainings, continue research and work in academia, domestic and foreign research institutions, as well as work in specialized laboratories.
