Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course comprises approximately 80 full-time study hours and takes the form of higher seminars where the doctoral students present, interpret, analyze, critically examine and actively discuss their own papers and other relevant research literature within the research field. An important aspect is that the research students receive constructive feedback on their own scientific papers and presentation skills. The course normally extends over an academic year with regular meetings during study-term periods and is the fourth of four courses in the seminar series. A more detailed description of the course content and structure can be found in the course memo.

Intended learning outcomes *

After completion of the course the student should be able to

  • demonstrate both broad and specialized knowledge in the overall subject area of biotechnology with emphasis on molecular biotechnology
  • demonstrate the ability to present pedagogically, critically examine and discuss their own and others' scientific work in the subject of biotechnology with emphasis on research in molecular biotechnology
  • demonstrate the ability to give and receive constructive feedback for further development of own and others’ scientific abilities and general skills
  • demonstrate the ability to acquire knowledge of academic authorship and the international scientific publishing landscape with relevance to the scientific focus area of the course
  • 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
