Semester tution start
Number of semesters
Language of instruction
The theoretical basis of selected instrumental techniques is studied in detail. A selected technique is completely described theoretically, and established on an actual instrument, including preparative steps. This includes methodological development, calibration and verification.
The candidate should obtain detailed knowledge of selected (one or several) instrumental analytical techniques applied in Chemical or Environmental research. The candidate should know the principles of functionality and application of important selected analytical approaches (e.g. chromatography, spectrometry, respirometry, etc.) incluing sample preparation and data analysis central to the candidates own research area, and document general analytical knowledge on PhD-level.
Required prerequisite knowledge
According to admission requirements for PhD in Chemistry and Biosciences. Final year master students may also be accepted to the course on the conditions of the appointed supervisors approval.

Method of work
Self study over individually defined syllabus, colloquiums or laboratory and project work. Competence building spesialist courses may be included as a part of the overall course, including practical methodological work.
Available for PhD-students accepted on the PhD program at IKBM. External candidates (outside the department) may be acceoted based on theor individual background. External candidates must be advised and supported by their PhD advisor.
There must be an early dialogue between the course coordinator, the student representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital course evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
