Molecular and Applied Plant Sciences majorCareer and Alumni

 MAPS graduates will, based on their broad interdisciplinary and integrative university training, qualify for a broad range of career opportunities. They can, for example, pursue a career in research, starting with a PhD, to be subsequently employed in responsible and leading positions at universities, academic and non-academic research institutes and biotech or agribusiness companies. Other promising job opportunities can be found in management, consulting, policy and communication in federal ministries, governmental and non-governmental organisations, breeding or other agribusiness companies. Positions in research funding organisations, scientific journalism, in the field of patents, plant variety protection, intellectual property rights, horticultural associations, or international organisations such as the EU represent additional employment possibilities.

MAPS graduates will be able to contribute to the sustainable development of plant production and agriculture at various integration levels in the areas of fundamental and applied Plant Sciences and Agriculture. In addition, due to their profound expertise and broad proficiency, MAPS graduates can also strive for employments in all other prominent areas of Life Sciences.
