Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
You should be interested in natural sciences, inquisitive and committed to the subject, rather than just scoring credit points. For admission to this master’s programme you also need to have completed a subject-relevant first degree.
Molecular Microbiology at the University of Graz
In the master’s programme you will study genetics and the molecular biology of microorganisms, and the molecular cell biology of various different model organisms. You will also investigate the biology of infection, with a focus on attack and resistance mechanisms in bacterial pathogens, and research into microbiomes.
Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences
The Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences allows you to develop your own research interests further and to perfect your methodological skills. You will work independently to investigate academic questions and contribute to the development of knowledge and innovation in your subject area.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
Graduates of this master’s programme often go on to senior roles in basic and applied research in universities and the industrial sector. After completing the master’s programme you will be able to develop and implement problem-solving approaches independently in the fields of molecular microbiology, the biology of infection, molecular cell biology and molecular genetics. Other career options include pharmaceutical and medical research, development and manufacturing, medical diagnostics or environmental analysis.
