The Forschungsverbund scientists offer lectures and courses at universities and technical colleges. The co-operation with universities and colleges leads to graduate and post-graduate dissertations and doctoral theses at the institutes of the Forschungsverbund. The young scientists can take advantage of an outstanding infrastructure, receive excellent supervision and benefit from the scientific life at the institutes. There are 223 Ph.D. students working at the institutes or the Forschungsverbund (as of 31/12/2010).
Ph.D students and postdocs can find information on Job Vacancies on this website or on the websites of the institutes.
The institutes are involved in several graduate schools and Initial Training Networks (ITN) of the EU. In these schools and networks the Ph.D. students can work on interdisciplinary and cross-institutional research topics.
A Ph.D. Student Day with a workshop for Ph.D. students of all eight institutes takes place every autumn. During the course of the day the students are taught competences that exceed the specialised knowledge and are important for any career, like career planning, time-management and methods and techniques of communication and presentation. The next Ph.D. student workshop will take place in November 2011.
Every year the Forschungverbund awards a Young Female Scientist Award for an excellent thesis, which has been developed within a scientific area of the Forschungverbund in the region of Berlin and Brandenburg.
