Post-graduate school

AIMMS PhD students and post-docs have diverse backgrounds and come to work in a multidisciplinary environment. This causes a need for supplementary training on different subjects.

Learning about relevant disciplines and better understanding of co-workers’ research will open one’s eyes for possible linkages within their own research. Moreover, it will create new opportunities for collaborations. Other perspectives and new approaches can lead to that special break-through!

To fill this need, AIMMS started a post-graduate school which contains broad and diverse courses. AIMMS organizes 2 courses per year: one in spring and one in autumn.

The main target audience for these courses are post-docs and PhD students. The thinking level of the courses is on Master’s level: AIMMS assumes a thinking level of graduates in science and life sciences, but without detailed knowledge of the particular subject.

The post-graduate school courses are initially developed for post-docs and PhD students within AIMMS. External researchers are also welcome to our courses!
