QBM seeks to train a cohort of young scientists who, while firmly anchored in their home discipline, are well versed in multiple approaches and styles of thought. The goal is for the students to get comfortable in communicating across traditional boundaries, especially across the divide between experiment and quantitative theory – to become, in effect, scientifically bi- or multilingual. To this end, the school offers an integrated interdisciplinary Ph.D. program that consists of three main components:
An interdisciplinary research project which combines concepts and methods from different fields.
A substantial program of formal course work with a general and an individual component centered around an interdisciplinary core course that covers key problems in bioscience from multiple perspectives.
Further activities to enhance students’ other transferable skills to succeed in science as a competitive profession.
Unique in the world and waiting for you!

About the Program
The Bioscience program plays a key role in tackling many of the global challenges being addressed by KAUST, with a general emphasis on what we term Adaptive Biology or the study of the mechanisms that allow organisms to adapt to their environment. The unique location of KAUST on the shores of the Red Sea makes comprehensive exploration of the biodiversity of this unique ecosystem and its potential biotechnology applications possible.
The Bioscience Program provides an introduction to living systems with courses in cell and molecular biology and biophysics. The program is comprised of two tracks of self-contained courses consisting of lectures, seminars and laboratory classes. Each course provides an in-depth review of the subject and examples of current research in the field....
