Thesis committee and mentoring

The RTG will provide students and postdoctoral researchers with intensive personalized mentoring to promote their scientific development and to enhance their career perspectives.

Doctoral students will be guided by a thesis committee, comprising two PIs from the RTG and an external advisor. The thesis committee will not only monitor progress of the research project and the student’s scientific development, but will support the student to design a personalized curriculum according to the student’s needs and interests to optimally support his/her career development.

Postdoctoral researchers will receive intensive mentoring by an RTG faculty member and a mentor of their choice. The mentors will provide advise with a strong focus on career development, the establishment of an independent research profile and the establishment of a scientific network.
