Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course comprises approximately 80 full-time hours and normally extends over a year with seminar sessions evenly distributed during term periods. The course assumes the form of science seminars where the doctoral students critically examine each other's research results. The student orally presents the research results obtained during the last six months, and also presents a critical review and reflection on the results. During the seminar, other participants are expected to participate actively in the critical review and discussion of the presented work.

Intended learning outcomes

After completion of the course the student should be able to

  • demonstrate specialized theoretical and methodological knowledge and skills in theoretical chemistry and biology
  • demonstrate the ability to critically examine and discuss their own and others' scientific work
  • demonstrate the ability to present research results
  • demonstrate the ability to identify, discuss and reflect on ethics and sustainability aspects in the research that is discussed within the framework of the scientific focus area of the course
