Scientific Program

The scientific program is concerned with the international and inter-facultaty education of PhD students of JSMC.


National and international speakers are invited to a every two weeks Microbiological Colloquium to help PhD students gain an overview of ongoing top-level research projects in microbiology.

Summer Schools with international guest scientists and a comprehensive selection of state-of-the-art methods courses convey complementary knowledge in selected scientific fields such as Technology, Bioinformatics etc.

To promote international education, research related to the topic of the dissertation can be carried out in international laboratories, e.g. in a three-month stay abroad in order to perform experiments.

In projects with an applied subject, a student can spend time  with anindustry partner institution instead or in addition to an international exchange.

Early presentation and discussion of data at international conferences will help in establishing a scientific background and aid PhD students in networking.
