*Applications invited for the Master's program "Geobiology and
Paleobiology" (MGAP) at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich
(Germany) for EU students until 31 May 2016*

The Master's program "Geobiology and Paleobiology" (MGAP) is a
consecutive, research-focussed, two-year Master of Science program at
the Faculty of Geosciences of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU)
Munich, in collaboration with researchers of the Bavarian Natural
History Collections and the GeoBio-Center @ LMU. MGAP aims to provide
students with a comprehensive set of skills for  the interdisciplinary
research fields of geobiology and paleobiology to excellently prepare
them for careers in science and beyond.

The MGAP program is based on interdisciplinary, research-oriented
courses in geo- and biosciences that address patterns and processes of
evolutionary and environmental geobiology and paleobiology. The
module-based curriculum provides an integrative approach facilitated by
experts in different areas of expertise. Students will learn and acquire
routines with a wide range of scientific methods such as modern
techniques in molecular biology, fieldwork, collection management,
comparative morphology, phylogeny, bioinformatics, statistics and
(paleo-) biodiversity assessments. Students will learn independent
scientific work in individual and intensively supervised research
projects at early stages of the curriculum.

*MGAP in brief*
- International Master's program in Geobiology and Paleobiology (Master
of Science, M.Sc.) at the LMU Munich
- 2 years, 4 semesters, start in October (winter semester)
- All courses taught in English
- Course total: 120 credit points (ECTS)
- Only about 120 Euro tuition fees per semester!

*Why come to Munich and study at LMU?*
The LMU Munich is the leading research university in Germany, with a
more than 500-year-long tradition, and builds upon its success in the
Excellence Initiative, a Germany-wide competition promoting top-level
university research. Munich has also been repeatedly voted Germany's
most livable city, only about one hour train ride away from the Alps,
with a vibrant international student student community and many cultural
attractions such as the (real) Oktoberfest.
