Ph.D PhD Scholarships in Biomolecular Sciences

at University of Trento in Italy

The International PhD Program in Biomolecular Sciences was activated in 2009 by the Centre for Integrative Biology (CIBIO) at the University of Trento.
The CIBIO, established in 2007, pursues the task of creating a suitable environment for merging classical cellular and molecular biology approaches with the new powerful tools of systems and synthetic biology, with the contribution of chemistry, physics, informatics, mathematics, and engineering in an integrative view of basic biological processes and of their derangement in disease.The main areas of interest rely on the presence of laboratories that carry-out research activities in different fields of biological sciences at CIBIO. There are also important teaching and research contributions from the departments of Physics, Mathematics, the Microsoft Research Centre for Computational and Systems Biology (COSBI) and Informatics and Communication Technology. The PhD School also benefits from interactions with regional foundations (e.g. FBK,FEM), which carry-out research activities and technological development.

The areas of interest include:

  • Biochemistry
  • Bioinformatics
  • Computational Biology
  • Developmental Biology
  • Genetics
  • Lipidomics and Biomembranes
  • Metabolomics and metabolic Imaging
  • Microbial Genomics
  • Molecular and Cellular Biology
  • Molecular Vaccinology
  • Molecular Virology
  • Nanobiotechnology
  • Neurobiology
  • Organic Chemistry
  • Structural Biology
  • Synthetic Biology
