MIN Graduate Center (MINGZ)
The MIN Graduate Center (MINGZ) 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, MINGZ 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 MINGZ doctoral representatives are the main contacts for all concerns of doctoral researchers at MIN Faculty.
