Doctoral Programme in Environmental Physics, Health and Biology
The Doctoral Programme in Environmental Physics, Health and Biology (EPHB) combines the fields of environmental research from soil and water systems to the stratosphere, research into the health impacts of the environment, and biological research to form a multidisciplinary programme.
The purpose of the doctoral programme is to provide students with the competences required to create new knowledge, apply methods of scientific research critically and independently, and to work in demanding expert and research positions in academia and the business and public sector.
The degrees available in the doctoral programme
Students can pursue doctoral degrees (PhD) via the programme in the following fields of science and research: Applied physics, biology and environmental science.
