About

The main focus of the training is to provide an introduction to independent research. Students in the Experimental Geosciences programme from University of Bayreuth are not only supervised by one doctoral supervisor alone, but by a whole group of scientists. 

Overview

The training includes high-pressure experiments with various apparatuses, diffraction experiments, spectroscopic methods, instrumental chemical analysis and electron microscopy. This is supplemented by lectures and training in specific methods and soft skills. 

Features 

  • Periods of research abroad can often be seamlessly integrated into the training programme. Doctoral Experimental Geosciences students at University of Bayreuth are expected to present their results at international conferences.

Programme Structure

Curriculum: 

  • The Earth's interior is simply not accessible for direct observation. 
  • Equally, the early history of Earth and the solar system can only be explored by indirect methods. 
  • Besides the classical observational approaches of geochemistry and geophysics, experimental investigations have become increasingly important in recent decades. 
  • Processes that take place deep in the Earth's core or mantle can be studied in the laboratory in high-pressure experiments, as can processes in interplanetary space, on the Earth's surface or on other planets. 
  • Experiments thus make a decisive contribution to modern geoscientific research.
