Research Training Groups at the University

Research training groups offer junior researchers from various subject disciplines the possibility to work at their doctorates and carry out research in the postdoctoral phase within the framework of a coordinated, interdisciplinary research programme. An accompanying study programme expands and enhances the individual specialisations of the junior researchers.

There are currently four graduate colleges at the University of Greifswald, including three funded by the DFG.
