Welcome to the website of the Graduate Center

As a contact point for doctoral students and postdocs, we see it as our task to support young scientists together with the faculties, the NanoFabResearch Training Group and the structural units - Research Service and Technology Transfer, International Office, Central Institute for Continuing Education and the Division of Equality, Diversity & Health. This includes improving the qualification of doctoral students as well as creating suitable framework conditions for doctoral studies. In this way, we strengthen the university's research activities and improve its position in the competition for young scientists.

The Graduate Center's information sheet will help you through the administrative jungle in the early days.
