Quality mentoring and research advising are hallmarks of effective graduate training. Your PhD committee will consist of your supervisor and two or three scientists who are acknowledged experts on the topic of your thesis project. The committee will support you through your project, accompanying it from the initial public presentation, through annual progress reports, to the final thesis defense. The role of the PhD committee is to provide creative and practical feedback, to review scientific progress and to suggest extension or modification of objectives.
The MFPL PhD Program is open to students who hold a Master’s degree in the biosciences, chemistry, or related fields, or students who expect to finish their master study before April 2012. Our selections take place twice a year (May and November).
