The Objective

Konstanz Research School Chemical Biology (KoRS-CB) guides talented graduate students to scientific excellence in one of the most exciting areas in basic and applied research.

The objective of the training programme is to provide the doctoral students with an interdisciplinary state-of-the-art training in chemical and biological concepts. The methods taught will prepare them for competitive research careers in both academia and industry. To account for the different academic backgrounds, individual training programmes are designed in close coordination between the doctoral students and their thesis committee. The training programme consists of talk series, scientific courses, and mini-symposia devoted to distinct research topics of immediate interest to the research conducted at the graduate school. In addition, courses for the improvement of transferable and management skills are held. The training programme is well harmonized with the research activities ensuring that the doctoral degree is obtained within three years.
