A joint master's programme at the University of Vienna & University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna
All over the world, research laboratories and biotech companies are looking for people who can tackle biological and medical issues with modern "omics" methods and are able to analyze the resulting complex datasets with bioinformatic and quantitative methods.
To fulfill this demand, the Evolutionary Systems Biology (ESB) master's programme provides the training necessary for this new type of scientist.
For further detailed information, see the Evolutionary Systems Biology Website
ESB master's students will:
Learn how to understand and handle modern “-omics” data sets.
Develop key computational skills and delve into biological modeling.
Combine experimental “wet-lab” technologies with quantitative “dry-lab” methods.
Apply these skills to questions arising from evolutionary biology, development, comparative genomics, and systems biology.

Physics aims to observe and explain the behaviour of the physical universe. In particular, physics looks for basic laws, which account for and predict what can be observed. Part of the appeal of the subject is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few such laws and that these apply everywhere and to everything.
The structure of the courses reflects the structure of the subject. All students take the core modules and choose further modules from the lists of options. The core modules introduce the fundamental principles, while the optional modules explore their applications in the different areas of physics including astrophysics, the properties of matter, particle physics and atmospheric physics. The option scheme also allows a proportion of modules to be taken from outside of physics. We encourage students not only to consider modules related to physics, for example in computing but also modules in philosophy and modern languages....
