The core of doctorate/Ph.D. studies is independent scientific work. Doctoral students thus contribute decisively to current research and are employed as academic co-workers at the university temporarily for the project duration of the doctoral thesis. The doctorate/Ph.D. studies are therefore not to be regarded as a degree program but as the first step in professional life. In addition, there is the possibility to participate in colloquia, scientific seminars, or lectures. Current news about the Research Training Group can be found here.
