Further comments (if needed)

A master’s degree in biology or chemistry is a mandatory requirement. The heads of the thematic programs of the Doctoral School of Biology (see their list below) may restrict the range of degrees they accept in order to ensure that the field in which the applicant’s prior degree was issued, and the curriculum of the applicant’s graduate studies, meet the special expectations of the given program.

Applicants still pursuing their MSc studies should qualify for the degree by the end of the academic year in which they submit their application.

Application procedure

The application starts at the online application system. Students need to register in the system, fill in the online application form, upload the required documents and follow the instructions during the application process.

Before applying, students should select a suitable research topic and should draw an outline for their research work with the guidance of their to-be supervisor. 

Important note: It is the student’s responsibility to find a qualified professor at the institute who is willing to act as a supervisor and they write together the research plan which is submitted along the application.
