Gegenstand des Faches

The Graduate School of Science & Technology (GSST) runs established and develops new structured doctoral programs. It places special emphasis on interdisciplinarity, being a joint initiative of six faculties: Physics & Astronomy, Chemistry & Pharmacy, Mathematics & Computer Science, Biology, Medicine and Philosophical Faculty I (Institute of Geography und Geology). Since 2017 the GSST also coordinates a program on digitalization, jointly operated by universities and universities of applied siences in Bavaria (BayWISS).

Building on strong collaborative research programs, the GSST provides interdisciplinary research training of the highest standards. To achieve this goal the school runs five broad interfaculty sections:

  • Theoretical & Fundamental Sciences
  • Molecular & Materials Sciences
  • Computing Sciences & Systems Engineering
  • Applied Sciences
  • Education Sciences

As a doctoral student,you will profit from

  • mentoring by a committee of three principal investigators,
  • individual research training plan, clearly defining scope and duration of the project,
  • comprehensive offer of research related and transferable skills training,
  • inclusion into a strong peer-network of doctoral researchers,
  • early exposure to the international research community,
  • strong emphasis on the publication of your results.

The doctoral study program of the GSST is designed for a three-year period. Once you have been admitted to the GSST (see admission), you should agree with your Advisory Committee on a start-up meeting at the end of the first two months of your project. You will define the focus of your project and develop a personal research training plan. After each year, annual meetings of the doctoral candidates and their advisory committee take place. After a period of about three years, your advisors will give you permission to submit your thesis. Thesis submission is followed by a thesis defense. If you need an extension to the normal three-year period, you should discuss this with your advisory committee. For a second extension, the approval of the Dean of the GSST is required.

For certain candidates who do not hold the necessary qualifications for admission (MSc or Diploma degree in a relevant subject, see admission), it is possible to be admitted to the GSST after a qualification period of up to one year.
