Young scientists and scholars
Promoting young scientists and scholars is one of the most important tasks for Heinrich Heine University.
At HHU, young scientists and scholars are offered clearly structured options for their academic careers. In addition to conventional postdoctoral lecturing qualifications, junior professorships and the independent junior research group leader position offer the opportunity to qualify as a university professor.
For PhD students, there are various ways of gaining a doctorate. In addition to gaining an individual PhD, students can also be integrated in a structured way into one of the Research Training Groups or one of the research schools at HHU. In addition to scientific and academic work, particular emphasis is placed on the supervision and ongoing professional development of PhD students.
