Opportunities for PhD Students

PhD students are the backbone of research, and their fresh ideas and dedication can make decisive contributions to scientific progress. Forschungszentrum Jülich works closely with universities in training and supervising PhD students. These connections are particularly close, as professors at Forschungszentrum Jülich are always appointed by a university – in particular, neighbouring universities in North Rhine-Westphalia. The actual doctorates are always conferred by a university. Thanks to reliable framework conditions, structured educational opportunities, and a variety of networking opportunities, the vast majority of PhD students complete their studies within the expected timeframe.
