Project Description

The PhD program in Molecular Life Sciences is a research doctorate of the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli that is run with the collaboration of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). With a faculty including top-level scientists, the program offers research and education opportunities to talented young fellows who have already obtained their Master’s or equivalent degree and want to establish themselves as future leaders in modern biological research. The program is multidisciplinary and is based on a well-balanced combination of research activity with access to the most modern technological platforms, theoretical courses, internal seminars and participation to national and international conferences. The official language of the Doctorate program is English. Research and training activities will take place in the Department of Environmental, Biological and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Technologies of the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, via Vivaldi, Caserta, and in the CNR Institutes of Napoli. The students will spend part of their doctorate (at least 3 months) in research groups abroad.
