After your master's
Many master's graduates in Chemistry decide to go on to study for a doctorate (PhD studies). This is undertaken in a research group at a Swiss university or abroad
The University of Bern doctoral program lasts for 3-4 years. Anyone who is interested should first find out whether a doctoral post is being offered in a research group at the University of Bern in their field of interest and at the appropriate time. The easiest way of obtaining information is by speaking to the leaders of the relevant research groups or by consulting their website. The links to the various research groups in the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences can be found here.
Career opportunities for PhD graduates include working in industry or pursuing an academic career.
