Doctoral researchers

Doctoral researchers are involved in all scientific work of the Helmholtz Centers and carry out a significant part of HZB's research. The final goal for doctoral researchers is to prove that they are able to do research independently and according to scientific standards.

HZB has developed a concept for supervising doctoral researchers according to the specific needs and challenges in educating young scientists. This concept involves regulations that create a reliable and profound  supervision and offer a framework of various possibilities to gain personal key qualifications for the future professional career.

Doctoral degrees are conferred by HZBs partner universities according to their specific regulations. The University is usually chosen by the affiliation of the main supervisor.
