The PhD Program of the Institute of Biochemistry (IBAR), organized under the auspices of the Romanian Academy, is open to highly qualified graduate students with degrees in natural sciences or medicine who wish training in biochemistry and molecular biology. The PhD training of IBAR is part of The School of Advanced Study of the Romanian Academy (SCOSAAR).
The program is designed to educate those students committed to research, aiming to follow international competitive careers in universities, governmental institutes or private companies.
The research area covered by the PhD Program includes: molecular mechanisms of protein synthesis and degradation, cell and molecular biology, enzymology, structural biochemistry, bioinformatics and molecular modelling, with applications in cancer, diabetes, and immunology.
Applicants should have a degree in biological, chemical, or physical sciences or medicine. Students with excellent academic qualifications and strong commitment to laboratory research are encouraged to apply.
For details please contact Dr. Mihaela Trif, tel: (+4).021.223.90.68, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The admission to the PhD program is granted base on an exam which will be organized at the Institute of Biochemistry.
For 2019 admissions, registration can be done by submitting an application at the Institute of Biochemistry, Splaiul Indenpendentei 296, Sector 6, Bucharest, between 02-13 September 2019.
The exam will take place between 16-27 September 2019, at the same institution, on the second floor. The bibliography for the exam will be made available for the contestants on the websites of the Institute of Biochemistry and of SCOSAAR starting August 20th, 2019.
The results of the exam will be made public before September 30th, 2019 and the final results will be made public on the October 8th, 2019.
The language exam is to take place in certified institutions only. Certificates which have been granted by institutions approved by SCOSAAR in the last 2 years will be accepted.
For the registration to the doctoral colloquium, the Romanian candidates must bring the following documents:
