Evolutionary Biology (Graduate Programme)

The international Pathway “Evolutionary Biology” is a new program that started in september 2020 and is organized by members of the Evolution, Ecology and Paleotology (EEP) Lab .

The aim of this Master programme is to train students to become research scientists and engineers in Evolution and Ecology with a particular emphasis on understanding the processes shaping biodiversity. To reach this goal the Master programme offers courses not only in Ecology and Evolution, but also  incorporates state-of-the-art on Genomics, Statistics, Bioinformatics, Modeling and Integrative Biology to provide a high-level and complete educational programme.

In addition to these skills, the students are preparing to enter PhD programs, developping active competences in project management, scientific and intercultural communication.

As part of the Graduate Programme “Science for a Changing Planet” (see below), EvoBio is a 2-years, 120 ECTS study programme entirely thaught in English. Students carry out an international mobility during either the first- or the second-year of their Master (Internship or study mobility). Mobility grants for internships abroad are available to cover part of the mobility expenses.

During their Master, the students spend a large part of their time in the EEP lab, where they can easily interact with professors, researchers, PhD students and technical staffs, allowing them to become active members of the scientific community of the lab, in particular by following the weekly seminar series.

After the Master, students of the EvoBio programme can apply to engineering-level positions, both in the public or the private sectors, and are ready to enter PhD programmes in France or abroad.
