All three participating universities have established graduate academies for promoting early career researchers.
In Frankfurt, the Goethe Research Academy = GRADE offers a wide-ranging set of services including a broad training program, funding opportunities for self-organized doctoral working groups, individual coaching, networking events, career talks and language classes. In addition to the central, university-wide GRADE unit, there are so-called GRADE Centers that reflect key issues of university research in specific areas. One of such centers is GRADE BRAIN created to promote the interdisciplinary network interaction of young researchers in the field of neuroscience.
In a similar manner, the JGU Mainz has initiated the Gutenberg Council for Young Researchers = GYR gathering professors, postdocs and PhD students to promote young research careers, provide academic supervision, increase their visibility and favour consultation with the university management. So, all these established structures are instrumental for the fundamental goal of young career support and scientific training.
In Darmstadt, the umbrella organsiation for promoting early career researchers is Ingenium. Together with the departments, graduate schools, and research training groups, Ingenium promotes and qualifies early career researchers at TU Darmstadt for both academic and non-academic careers.
rmn² students and postdocs can use the services at all three locations equally.
