Training for PhD students

In addition to intensive supervision by the institutes, early-career scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich can derive real benefits from four elements of structured PhD funding. The collective aim is to enable young researchers to achieve a high level of creativity and independence and to support them throughout their PhD with the aid of quality-assurance processes. At present, 45 % of all PhD students at Forschungszentrum Jülich take advantage of training courses. 65 % of all PhD students at Jülich are supported by the doctoral committee.
