Support for early career researchers at ICBM

PhD study programmes at ICBM and support of junior researches


At ICBM there are many opportunities for doctoral studies. The support of junior researches (doctoral candidates) has a very high priority at the ICBM. The ICBM offers doctoral students excellent working conditions and enables them to participate in structured PhD study programmes at the Graduate School "Science, Medicine and Technology" (Oltech) and the Graduate Academy.


For students who have already graduated, there is often the possibility of financial support (graduate support) through programs of the University of Oldenburg.


Further information about funding opportunities as a junior scientist can be found on the webpages for Junior Researchers, of the Graduate Academy of the University of Oldenburg, "promoting young researchers" as well as information on legal and financial issues.
