Structured Doctoral Research and Training Programme

PhD students in the department of Astrophysics at the University of Potsdam are working at various institutes in the region, e.g. at the University itself (UP), the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) or the DESY/Zeuthen.

To optimize the networking and prepare the students for their future careers in research, the framwork of the structured doctoral training program was started. However, this does not affect the standard regulations for doctoral studies at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at UP.


Current members of the Executive Board are Carsten Denker (AIP), Martin Pohl (UP/DESY Zeuthen), Lutz Wisotzki (AIP), and Sergio González Manrique (AIP) for the students.
