PhD Studies

We are committed to provide our PhD students with the best possible support and training towards the successful completion of their research work and gaining important key skills to qualify for careers within and outside academia. Our Neurosciences program belongs to the Göttingen Graduate Center for Neurosciences, Biophysics and Molecular Bioscience (GGNB) under the umbrella of the Georg-August University School of Science (GAUSS), thus providing numerous networking possibilities and a wide range of qualification offers and services.

Throughout the three to four years of your PhD, you are focusing on your research project and writing your dissertation. You will be guided by a thesis advisory committee (TAC) consisting of three independent academics advising you on your research and monitoring your progress throughout your PhD studies. Your TAC will provide critical feedback to the research progress and data interpretation, and mediates in the case of potentially upcoming difficult situations.
