The campus-wide graduate school professionally accompanies doctoral students from all fields through their dissertation project and prepares them for their academic and non-academic career path. In addition, the Research School supports postdocs all the way from the start of their career until they are ready to be appointed.
The Research School provides assistance to academics on their career path through interdisciplinary, extradisciplinary and interdisciplinary programmes as well as individual academic guidance. The qualification programme offers skills relevant to researchers, such as publishing, presenting and research project planning, as well as training on career prospects for PhD graduates and funding opportunities. This diverse portfolio equips the academics to be successful as researchers and to plan their careers effectively.
The Research School’s “Research Around the World Programme” supports the international activities of PhD students to build up international networks at an early stage. Junior researchers can apply for funds to carry out project-related stays abroad, invite international guest researchers and organise international conferences on campus. In addition, the Research School offers funding opportunities for professors and faculties to invite international researchers to campus.
The Research School bundles training, advisory services, interdisciplinary dialogue and the promotion of international research with the aim of successfully shaping the education of early career researchers.
