Helmholtz Graduate Schools

We are committed to supporting early career researchers: we support doctoral students in our graduate schools.

These central contact points provide advice on the administrative process of a doctorate and maintain contact between the Helmholtz Center and the partner university. In addition, the schools bundle relevant offers for doctoral students, such as Helmholtz Kollegs and Research Schools.

Graduate schools can be found at almost all Helmholtz Research Centers. Other centers have appointed contact persons.
