Each PhD student works in close collaboration with their Thesis Advisory Committee to define the specific research aims and curricular content of their studies. This individual tailor-made training and supervision concept ensures that the needs of each PhD candidate are met on their way to obtaining their degree.
Through a structured and stimulating curriculum - including courses, seminars, workshops, a Journal Club and an annual retreat - our students have the opportunity to connect and exchange information with their fellow students as well as with professors and visiting researchers.
