The Molecular Biosciences Program offers an interdisciplinary program towards a Doctorate in Philosophy in the Life Sciences. Students in the MBSP program are able to pursue research across department boundaries, before selecting a specific area of study at the end of the first year.

This program allows graduate students to rotate in three different laboratories during their first year, within their chosen area of research. By the end of the first year, they must select a research advisor and be formally admitted to a department to conduct a research project leading to the completion of a Doctorate of Philosophy.

Research Areas:

Biofilm Sciences & Engineering BioInspired Materials Bioinformatics/Genomics/Proteomics Biomedical Sciences Biophysics Cell, Developmental, & Molecular Biology Chemical Biology Environmental Microbiology Immunology & Infectious Disease Life in Extreme Environments Biological & Mathematical Modeling Neuroscience Plant Sciences Virology ...

The PhD curriculum in Theory and Simulation of Condensed Matter is suited to highly motivated students interested in learning how the microscopic constituents of matters self- assemble to bring about the whole complexity of the states of matter, from molecules to complex solids, and in learning how to model fascinating macroscopic phenomena, from friction to superconductivity and superfluidity, emerging from the collective behaviour of those microscopic agents.

During the first year of their PhD course, students acquire the most advanced tools for modelling and studying states of matter, from ab-initio simulation of real materials and molecules to quantum simulation of lattice models, from the classical statistical theory of many-body systems to its quantum counterpart, and acquaint themselves with the broad research activity carried out at SISSA through more focused and topical courses. This preliminary stage provides students with a common background and all the information they need to decide on the research topic they intend to pursue in their PhD thesis.... [-]
