The PhD programme Geoscience is based on three research foci of the faculty. These are:
1. Coupling processes between the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere
2. Dynamics and transport processes of the lithosphere
3. Coupled processes in Georeservoirs
By participating in a number of externally funded projects, doctoral candidates learn to perform independent scientific work. Through active participation in the scientific affairs of the faculty or the Geoscience Centre, students acquire knowledge and skills that go beyond a curricular programme of study.
