The RTG 2498 brings together groups from different contributing institutes (three MLU institutes and the IPB), giving the PhD-students the opportunity to approach their projects from different points of view and with complementary methods. The interwoven study program together with supervision by individualized Thesis Committees will train the young researchers in interdisciplinary thinking and prepare them for responsible leading positions in molecular life sciences. During their entire work, our PhD-students will be guided by a Thesis Committee to ensure the successful completion of each thesis.
The structured education program will offer a range of obligatory and elective training modules including Science Training and Complementary Activities. Science Training courses will provide hands-on exposure to different experimental techniques and the scientific background knowledge. Besides Science Training courses there will be Complementary Activities which are aiming to prepare the students for their future roles as scientific leaders and decision makers.
