First steps

The basic steps towards obtaining a PhD at the MPGC are largely similar to those in other institutes. Within the PhD program most time is devoted to scientific research, including learning the techniques specific to the specific field. In addition, the PhD students receives some additional education to broaden and strengthen their academic knowledge. During their PhD the students are supervised by an advisory group, helping them to get most out of their stay at the MPGC.
