Πανεπιστήμιο Θεσσαλίας: Advanced Experimental and Computational Biosciences (2024-2025)

The Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of the University of Thessaly invites interested parties to apply to attend the Master's Graduate Program "Advanced Experimental and Computational Biosciences" for the academic year 2024-2025.

The main focus of the program is the in-depth study of advanced approaches in biochemistry, molecular biology, genomics, and bioinformatics, and their applications in health, agri-food, and the environment. Our vision is to advance scientific excellence in life sciences and to foster a strong and dynamic culture of collaboration, supporting risk-taking and interdisciplinary research toward breakthrough discoveries. The program provides high-level practical training in the life sciences, develops candidates’ research skills, and prepares them for entering a PhD program or as staff of research centres.

All holders of biosciences-related Bachelor’s programs (e.g. biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, chemistry, molecular biology, genetics, but also medical schools) are eligible to apply. Good knowledge of English is a prerequisite for applying. For applicants whose mother tongue is not English, at least a B2 level degree and good command of the language during the interview are required.

Evaluation of applicants is based on the following criteria:

  • Good knowledge of English
  • Interview: The interview is an essential part of the selection procedure, the purpose of which is to assess whether the candidate is capable of critically using basic biological information in order to address specific research-related problems. The interview is oral and in English. Interviews include questions on biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, microbiology, and genetics, as well as questions on subjects of wider scientific interest that aim to:
    • determine whether the supporting documents reflect the general training of the applicant
    • ascertain any special needs of the candidate (depending on the previous studies) in the event that he / she will be accepted
