Structured Doctoral Programs
A structured route towards a doctoral degree
Participating in a research training group is an alternative to the “classic” individual doctorate. It means that you follow a structured curriculum together with your fellow doctoral candidates who are working on complementary topics. In some programs you will receive a stipend for your work.
Programs funded by DFG
The major objectives of the Transregio TRR130 are to understand how physiological and pathological adaptive memory is established and to train critical-thinking, highly skilled, and internationally competitive immunologists. The Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) „B cells and beyond“ within the TRR130 wants to foster the interaction of students and investigators locally and among the four participating locations with a structured educational and mentoring concept that goes beyond the level of training doctoral students usually receive in their labs. The DFG has been supporting the SFB Transregio 130 (TRR 130) „B cells: Immunity and Autoimmunity“ since 2013.
Life@FAU offers doctoral candidates of the Faculty of Medicine and the Department of Biology a structured, interdisciplinary training program in the fields of medicine and the natural sciences.

Based on the graduate program, a joint research training group („Medicinal Chemistry of Selective GPCR Ligands“, GRK 1910), funded by DFG, was implemented in 2013.
