TRAINING PROGRAM FOR NON-DK STUDENTS

Duration: 3 years

Number of ECTS required: 30

Preamble: Due to the very different academic background for PhD-BCB students it is not possible to suggest a homogenous teaching program. Students with background in molecular biology need to extend their knowledge in computer sciences and theoreticians (mathematicians, physicists, computer sciences, etc) need to acquire the basics of molecular biology. The relevant courses will be discussed from case to case. However, the general structure of the training program will look as follows:

ModuleECTS
PhD-MB 1 Advanced Basic Courses2-6
PhD-MB 2 Advanced Methods Workshops2-4
PhD-MB 3 Lecture Series2-4
PhD-MB 4 Journal Club6-8
PhD-MB 5 Thesis Seminars / Work in Progress6-12
PhD-MB 6 Presentation & Communication Skills0-2
PhD-MB 7 Elective Courses2-12

PhD-MB 1 Advanced Basic Courses:
min. 2 ECTS. Credits can also be given for advanced lectures out of the Master program that you have not attended before and specialized lectures offered by other faculties/universities.
We recommend attending these courses during the first year of your PhD.

PhD-MB 2 Advanced Courses:
min. 2 ECTS. Credits may also be given for advanced classes at other institutions to learn new methods. We recommend attending the advanced classes during the first year of your PhD.

PhD-MB 3 Lecture Series:
min. 2 ECTS.

PhD-MB 4 Journal Club:
min. 6 ECTS.

PhD-MB 5 Thesis Seminars / Work in Progress:
min. 6 ECTS

PhD-MB 6 Presentation & Communication Skills:
Optional module, max. 2 ECTS

PhD-MB 7 Elective Courses:
2-12 ECTS. Credits can also be given for attendance at international workshops/ congresses (1x2 ECTS) and presentations (talks or posters) at international conferences (4 ECTS).  and presentations (talks or posters) at international conferences (4 ECTS). Send a scan of attendance letters and detailed conference schedule to gerlinde.aschauer@univie.ac.at and it will be taken care of.
