PhD in Aquatic Biosciences
Based on the nature of the research project, you will complete part of your studies abroad, either in the form of prolonged research stays/visits at international institutions or by completing some of your courses abroad.
Following further studies
The Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture (FBA) welcomes applicants who have successfully completed their master's degree (120 ECTS) in Aquaculture or Marine Ecology or other related fields within biology, with a minimum average grade B (or its international accepted equivalence) or better. Potential candidates with master´s degree in other areas may be considered depending on the nature of the proposed research project.
2. FINANCIAL CAPACITY
In order to be admitted to the PhD programme applicants must be able to source financing for the entire period of the doctoral studies (3 years). Possible funding sources may be a PhD fellow position financed by the Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture, if available, and other external sources, e.g. from the home country. Private funding (e.g. own or family's financial resources) does not normally qualify for admission to the PhD programme. Documented funding from research fellowship positions, scholarships or governmental/business bodies is required.
Particularly about PhD fellowship positions:
PhD research fellow positions at our faculty are generally fully funded for three years. These PhD positions are linked to a specific research project. Successful applicants for this position will be offered employment to enter the PhD programme in Aquatic Biosciences. Available research fellow positions funded by the Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture will be announced on the university's website. Here you will find available positions
