Masters in Radiation Biology, Technical University Munich, starting date WS15, registration open now.

The Technical University of Munich will start a Masters degree course in Radiation Biology in October 2015, following on from the European MSc course. The two year degree course will start in October 2015, will be taught in the English language, and charges NO tuition fees.

Registration is open but closes at the end of this month. Interested graduates holding (or expecting) a good bachelor or medical degree are encouraged to register their interest online. Final application formalities (certificates etc.) can be uploaded at a later date poor to the start of the academic year, but you must register your interest before the end of the month.

The following courses will be held between September 2014 and
   June 2015:



Overall purpose of the DoReMi T+E initiatives

To help attract and support the top-level well-trained research scientists who will spear-head the low-dose radiation risk research community for the coming decades;

  • To contribute to dissemination of the DoReMi RTD through T+E courses and events based at the centres of excellence in the DoReMi consortium;
  • To facilitate the networking of training and research institutions by focusing on multi-centre events and courses;
  • To provide funding support to T+E in a way that maximally benefits both the DoReMi RTD programme and also the larger European research community in the longer term.

Develop a portfolio of support initiatives that includes:

» Support for short-course single topic modules;

» Support for Bologna-compliant multi-institution degree course/s

» Support for multi-institution PhD programmes

» Career-path support (“DoReMi fellow/s”)

» Support for workshops, summer schools, infrastructure access tutorials

» Ad hoc travel grants, student transfer, etc.

Develop a sustainability strategy in collaboration with the MELODI platform to ensure support for low-dose radiation risk T+E beyond the completion of DoReMi.

Short courses on research into radiobiological effects of exposure to low doses of ionising radiation

DoReMi is a Euratom-funded Network of Excellence set up to promote and integrate European research into the risks of exposure to low doses of ionising radiation. In addition, DoReMi will facilitate and promote training and education in support of the research programme within the project, and also make more widely available training opportunities in order to help attract top-level students into the field.

DoReMi Training Courses will be open to any postgraduate student or researcher interested in a research career in the scientific disciplines related to radiation protection.  Students outside EU can be accepted if there is space.  The admission will be decided case by case.

Following the successful series of short courses sponsored by DoReMi in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, a further series of courses on single topics related to the research programme will be held between September 2014 and June 2015.
