Program description

PhD in Desert Studies

The Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research (BIDR), affiliated to the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), are acknowledged leaders in desert studies, widely respected in the international scientific community for the quality and creativity of their research and training programs. In light of this global reputation and the worldwide need for expertise in the study of drylands, BGU and the Blaustein Institutes have established the Albert Katz International School for Desert Studies, which offers programs leading to Master’s and Ph.D. degrees in Desert Studies, and Hydrology & Water Technologies. These multi-disciplinary research areas have emerged in response to the lack of science-based responses to the urgent needs of humanity.

Admission requirements

Doctoral candidates may only be accepted for research studies by recommendation of the department in which that research will be done and with the approval of the Faculty Graduate Studies Committee and that of the Research Students’ Committee.

1. The candidate must have earned a Masters' degree in a program requiring the submission of a Masters’ Thesis from B.G.U. or another comparable academic institution, and must have high grades from the Masters’ studies and Thesis. Candidates who have not yet fulfilled their Masters’ degree requirements may be accepted conditionally, contingent upon their proper completion of supplemental studies; this is a temporary status that may be conferred for only one semester.

· Holders of a Master degree without a Thesis may not register for the Ph.D. degree. It is possible to complete the required Thesis at our University by registering for "Thesis completion" (as part of the registration for the Masters' degree). One may register for the Ph.D. program after the successful completion of the Thesis. In some departments, it is possible to register for the "Combined Track" after one year of research (inquire at the Kreitman School).

2. The candidate must choose a potential Thesis Advisor from among the senior lecturers or professors prior to registration online. Detailed information on the various academicians is generally available online via the BGU homepage, by checking their various personal homepages linked to the departmental websites.
