Teaching activities: Linguistics, computational, valuing research, intellectual property

Linguistics

Required activities for phD students, managed by phD programme. Scientific writing and presentation course. PhD students will learn to: write with clarity to publish in scientific journals, identify components of a manuscript, deal with peer- reviews and debate results, prepare effective presentations.
Communications course for public presentations. Admission tests require the assessment of english language.

Computational

Required activities exclusively for phD students, managed by phD programme. Statistical data processing laboratory. PhD students will gain an understanding of how to deal with common issues in the analysis of real world biological data such as heterogeneity of variance, and spatial and temporal non-independence. Particular attention will be given to the analysis of big-data produced by high-throughput approaches (e.g., metagenomics, genomics, transcriptomics). Admission tests don't require computer skills verification.

Management of research, knowledge of research systems and funding schemes

Activities open to phD students; highly recommended; managed by the University. The University, in collaboration with professors and experts, will organise seminars and info-day on "systems and funding opportunities for research". PhD students will learn to identify key funding EU programmes, prepare a project proposal and interpret aspects of project implementation (funding principles, grant/internal agreements, budgeting, project monitoring, review).

Valuing research results and intellectual property rights

Activities open to phD students; highly recommended; managed by the University. The University, in collaboration with professors and experts in these fields, will organise seminars and info-day on how "protecting and enhancing research results and intellectual property".
PhD students will gain appropriate skills for the management and protection of research results (for example Open Access and granted patents).
