The training program will be carried out in the first three months of the PhD. It will be a combination of lectures and practical exercises covering the fundamental principles and techniques of structural biology. This will create a common foundation of knowledge and skills shared by all the students in the program, which will then be further developed and enriched through more individualized training in advanced aspects of their specific biological system of interest.
Students are of course welcome to take other relevant courses at either of the two Universities.
Here is the link to the courses of the master program structural biology of the university of Vienna. Courses in red are not included in the DK training. Click on the course names in the pdf document for further information.
