The Chair of Insect Biotechnology in Plant Protection offers courses for undergraduate and graduate students in different disciplines, such as Plant Protection, Insect Biotechnology, and Molecular Biology. Different knowledge and insights on pests and pathogens are taught, as well as topics such as crop protection and agroecology.
Bachelor's and Master's theses are based on the module topics and current research topics in the group. Interested students can contact our lecturers any time during lectures or via email to discuss possible thesis.
As part of our postgraduate education, we are involved in the International Giessen Graduate Center for the Life Sciences (GGL). Prof. Schetelig is leading Section 7 'Bioresources, Bioinformatics, and Biotechnology', and within this Ph.D. education of the GGL, we offer several events and soft-skill courses that are particularly tailored to doctoral students, but also postdocs at the JLU Gießen.
Since 2017 we are offering the international Master Study program "Insect Biotechnology & Bioresources".
Seminar series 'Insect Biotechnology & Bioresources'
The seminar takes place every second Wednesday from 3-5 pm in room B 301, IFZ. The seminar can be credited for the GGL study program in section 7 'Bioresources, Bioinformatics und Biotechnology'. Guest are very welcome!
