PhD studies are possible in all biology disciplines actively exploited in the biology departments of the Faculty of Science of the University of Szeged and at the Biological Research Centre of HAS Szeged with special emphasis on molecular and experimental fields. The major fields are: anthropology, biochemistry, biotechnology, cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, neurobiology, plant biology, and plant physiology.
The Biology PhD School of University of Szeged was established at year 2000, by the unification of the former Molecular Cell Biology, and Neurobiology PhD Programmes. The PhD studies are supported by a tree-years fellowship from governmental and non-governmental sources. Recently the Biology PhD School has more than sixty students.
The Departments of University of Szeged and the research groups of Biological Research Centre have broad Hungarian and international collaboration including laboratories in Australia, Japan, the United States, the Netherlands, and in several major cities within Europe: Antwerp, Stockholm, Oxford, Göttingen, Paris, Kosice (Slovakia) and Peruggia.

Those who are interested in any of the above research fields of experimental biology are invited to visit the websites:,,
The Aim of the School is to provide courses, seminars for PhD students who have special interest in modern experimental biology.

biology1The institutes and departments have several Ph.D. courses dealing with subjects such as biochemistry, biotechnology, bioinformatics, cell biology, genetics, microbiology, molecular biology, neurobiology and plant physiology. The fellows can take classroom courses from leading scientists of the University of Szeged and Biological Research Centre of Szeged. For experimental laboratory courses and for research the PhD students can use the research facilities and equipments of the biology departments of the university as well as the BRC. These include the DNS sequencing, DNA chips, proteomics, oligonucleotid synthesis, fluorescent cell sorting, light- and electronmicroscopy, patch clamp recordings plant and animal breeding facilities.
PhD fellowships are available from governmental sources at University of Szeged (only for Hungarian citizens), from institutional source at the Biological Research Centre of Szeged and from research grants.
A yearly Annual Research Seminar is held, where the graduating PhD students present their scientific achievements in May.

Neurobiology is a traditionally important field of Natural Sciences at the University of Szeged. Academician Ambrus Ábrahám was the first internationally recognized neurobiologist at the USZ in the middle of the 20th century. Later on Professor Ottó Fehér initiated the research in neurophysiology. During the past decade the most sophisticated and modern methods and devices became available at the Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine and at theDepartment of Physiology, Anatomy and Neuroscience. Facilities of molecular biology, light- and electron microscopy, confocal microscopy, in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology (e.g. patch clapm recordings) and behavioural study methods are available.

The Department of Microbiology has a four decades tradition in the research of microscopic fungi and bacteria. There are five research groups, with approximately 30-40 undergraduates and 10-12 PhD students at the Department. Thus, it is large enough to provide a stimulating research environment but small enough to allow close personal interactions. The range of research interest varies from mycology and classical microbiology to molecular microbiology. The research and PhD-training activity of Department also benefits from well established relationships with other national and international partners.
