CRAG PhD program welcomes applications from motivated national and international students. PhD students are integrated into one of the Research Groups at CRAG. The Research Group can belong to any of the four Scientific Programs at CRAG: Plant Development and Signal Transduction, Plant Responses to Biotic and Abiotic Stress, Plant Metabolism and Metabolic Engineering, and Plant and Animal Genomics. PhD students work under the supervision and guidance of a CRAG Group Leader or Researcher for the development of a research project leading to a doctoral dissertation. All PhD students have access to CRAG's experimental research infrastructures.
