Master Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution

International Pathway “Evolutionary Biology”

About EvoBio

The international Pathway “Evolutionary Biology” is a new programme that started in september 2020 and is organized by the Evolution, Ecology and Paleotology Lab (EEP).

The aim of this Master programme is to train students to become research scientists and engineers in Evolution and Ecology with particular emphasis on understanding the processes shaping biodiversity. To reach this goal the master programme proposes state-of-the-art courses not only in Ecology and Evolution but incorporates Genomics, Statistics, Bioinformatics, Modelling and Integrative Biology to reach a high-level and complete educational program.

In addition to these skills, students are prepared to become PhD students, developping high skills in project management, scientific and intercultural communication and in English.

As part of the Graduate Programme “Science for a Changing Planet” (see below), EvoBio is a 2-years, 120 ECTS study programme entirely thaught in English. Students carry out an international mobility either during the first- or second-year of the Master (Internship or study mobility; scholarships available).

During the master, students spend a large part of their time in the EEP lab and can easily interact with teachers, researchers, PhD students and staffs as well as participate to the life of the lab for exemple by following the weekly seminars.

After the Master, students can apply to engineering-level positions, both in the public and private sectors, or to a PhD thesis in France or abroad.

Graduate Programme “Science for a Changing Planet”

The Master BEE pathway Evolutionary Biology (EvoBio) is part of the Graduate Programme “Science for a Changing Planet” of the University of Lille. The aims of this Graduate Programme are  to increase the academic international network, mainly in Europe, and to identify and strengthen an economical network oriented toward employability of the PhD Students. This programme is open to worldwide talented students in various scientific fields including Evolutionary Biology.

Students with a first higher education degree (e.g., Bachelor, Licence) or a recognized equivalent level of learning in the field of Natural Sciences, Biology of Organisms, Biology of Populations, Ecology and/or Genetics can candidate to the master BEE pathway Evolutionary Biology.

The Graduate Programme proposes scholarships for each year of the master. See the block “scholarships” on the left side of the page.
