IFU Graduate Office

The IFU Graduate Office is the main platform for communication and interaction for doctoral researchers and postdocs at IFU.

What we do:

  • Manage and coordinate the Helmholtz Research School MICMoR
  • Develop all talent management measures for IFU’s doctoral and postdoctoral researchers
  • Coordinate and organize in-house training, both in scientific and professional skills
  • Provide exchange and discussion possibilities, e.g. at IFU’s monthly PhD seminar
  • Train and counsel young researchers, e.g. with regard to career development, funding, grant application
  • Provide onboarding and offer information and general support

If you have any questions or need support, you are welcome to contact us.
