MIN Graduate School (MINGS)
The MIN Graduate School (MINGS) is an institution within the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Natural Sciences. Our goal is to guarantee the high quality of PhD education and to contribute to its continuous improvement. In close cooperation with the participating departments and research areas, we work to organise and further develop the structured PhD program MIND (“MIN Doktorandenkolleg”). Further, MINGS offers a wide range of support measures and events open for all doctoral candidates of the MIN faculty.
These include travel grants and short-term stipends, counselling for newcomers, career and networking events and more. The MINGS doctoral representatives are the main contacts for all concerns of doctoral researchers at MIN Faculty.
Moreover, MINGS is an umbrella graduate school for currently eleven structured doctoral programs within different departments. To help members organise their respective structured PhD programs, MINGS runs the online platform Geventis.
Since 2019, the Joachim Herz Stiftung supports the MINGS within the framework of the ProBe project, which aims at optimising supervision and career development for doctoral researchers at MIN Faculty.
