What will I learn?

Molecular Biosciences have gained increased significance because they deal with the molecular basics of biological processes. The Bachelor's course in Molecular Biosciences is offered by the Faculty of Natural Sciences at the Paris Lodron University Salzburg in cooperation with the Faculty of Engineering & Natural Sciences at the Johannes Kepler University Linz. It offers a nationally and internationally competitive, practical professional training for biologists specializing in molecular biology. A combinational education in the subjects of genetics, cellular biology and molecular biology in Salzburg, and the subjects of organic and analytical chemistry and biophysics in Linz secures a future-oriented education. In sum, the course provides students with a deeper understanding of the molecular processes of a living cell.

Which career opportunities do I have?

With the solid and combinational education in biolgical and analytical subjects, students acquire a set of tools which will allow them to meet the challenges of modern professional life. Graduates can choose from a broad variety of careers in private and public enterprises and institutions. Occupations for graduates in Molecular Biosciences include research in the fields of pharmacy and biomedics, biotechnology, biological and environmental analysis, and medical-diagnostic analysis. There is also a range of possible occupations in the fields of healthcare, medicine and environment, as well as in public administration and adult education.

Why Salzburg?

The Bachelor's course in Molecular Biosciences at the University of Salzburg was the first inter-university course in Austria. First and foremost, students benefit from the wide choice of biological and molecular biological subjects they can study at the University of Salzburg (basics in biology, genetics & cellular biology, biochemistry and molecular genetics). In addition, they also get to know a partner university in an early stage of their studies, and study physics & biophysics, organic & analytical chemistry, and molecular biotechnologies at the University of Linz. This inter-university course starting at the University of Salzburg prepares students both professionally and organisationally for the dynamics of modern working life.

    Viktoria Jansesberger, master's graduate and newly qualified research assistant and prospective doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Science and Sociology, and Tim Niklas Becker have both received the Federal Minister of Education, Science and Research Award 2020 for their outstanding academic achievements.
    Unfortunately, the planned lecture on 17th December 2020 by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Matthias NEUMAYR (Vice President of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Republic of Austria; University of Salzburg) on ​​the subject of "Five Years of the EuErbVO: Recent Developments in International Inheritance Law" cannot take place due to the continuing Covid19 situation
    Ingrid Vukusic and Georg Zimmermann were awarded the Hans-Stegbuchner Prize for outstanding scientific work in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Salzburg on the 19th November 2020.
    Prof. Tuulia Ortner, Prof. Hannes Winner, Prof. Norbert Christian Wolf und Prof. Michael Zichy were awarded the Kurt-Zopf Prize for the year 2019. This award honours high-ranking and internationally recognised publications from scientists at the University of Salzburg.
    The Paris Lodron University of Salzburg has launched an in-house mentoring program for new students as part of the “On Track” project. And it has come at the right time, because the lockdown has made the start of their studies into a real challenge for many first-semester students.
    The recording of the PLUS Talks "Studies and Teaching WS 2020/21“ from 25.11.2020 is now available.
    Matthias Henke, musicologist, Danube University Krems, talks about Beethoven's current biography “Beethoven. Akkord der Welt ( Chord of the World)”, published in 2020 by Hanser Verlag.
    24 very easy exercises on 24 cards can be found in the SALTO advent calendar. The exercise ideas are ideal for children from the age of three and are also easy for the whole family to carry out in a small space. With the support of the Kinder Büro (Children's Office), this combinable contribution should benefit as many as possible.
    Researchers led by Salzburg's geoinformatics scientist Christian Neuwirth had already developed and presented a mathematical model for Covid-19 in May 2020 which examines the question of how long and intensively social distancing measures have to be maintained in order to reduce corona deaths further.
    Results of the study on media use by children and families during lockdown. Home schooling could be improved, but is on the right track. Secondary schools have a better profile. Families have learned to deal with lockdown and homeschooling.
    Digitization has led to an enormous spread of different forms of mobile working. Corona has brought an additional boost and has introduced home office in areas and for activities that were previously unimaginable.
    During the time of Corona, in particular, it became clear just how important it is to support students digitally in their every day university life. The project „On Track“ – stay on track combines digital and social worlds. It is starting at the right time!
