The life sciences are rapidly developing, with new methodologies and biological and medical breakthroughs. The life sciences have created entirely new and exciting fields of research that cross the traditional borders between biology and other sciences, engineering and physics.
In order to bring doctoral students up to speed on these exciting developments, a cross-disciplinary initiative coordinates a package of courses aimed at PhD students at Lund University. The courses are designed to equip students with knowledge and skills that are relevant to their own research.
The courses within the package are typically intensive one-week full-time hands-on courses with a limited number of participants (typically eight), to ensure that students receive excellent individual tuition. Each course is recommended to give 3 ECTS credits ("högskolepoäng") in the LADOK register.
Information on available courses can be found here. Applications are received each year between May 1st and May 31st and all courses are given September-December. Please note that the courses are not open to master students! You have to certify that you are a registered PhD student when you apply.
The course package is funded by the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Medicine at Lund University and by the research network PlantLink at Lund University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Alnarp.
