The Master program "FOKUS Life Sciences" is a very comprehensive, interdisciplinary and fast track preparation for performing a PhD project at the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS), University of Würzburg.
Available research topics for the Master program as well as for the subsequent PhD are clustered in the sections of Biomedicine, Integrative Biology, Infection and Immunity, and Neuroscience, comprising more than 240 research groups.
The Master program FOKUS Life Sciences thus bundles the leading Life Sciences expertise in Würzburg under the auspices of the faculty of Biology, including the other faculties participating in the Graduate School of Life Sciences: Physics, Chemistry & Pharmacy, Medicine and Psychology.
Prior Bachelor studies in Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedicine, Pharmacy, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, or other natural science programs can be the basis to apply.
Substantial laboratory experience, most likely in the form of an experimental Bachelor thesis, is required. Please note that a prior education and training in medical programs is NOT considered sufficient (exceptions may apply if substantial practical research experience in basic science can be demonstrated).
The prospective students have finished their BSc (or are close to completion) and
