Integrated Research Training Group “Multiscale Imaging”
Our Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) offers early-career researchers comprehensive scientific training in the field of “multiscale imaging” and individual support for their doctoral thesis projects. Our network members from various disciplines research interdisciplinary topics and go through a joint training programme that supports them on their way to early scientific independence and supervises their personal career development. We support and encourage junior scientists to contribute their ideas, not only to our network’s research projects but also to various committees including the Executive Board, the careers committee and the equal opportunity committee.
Members of our IRTG include PhD students in the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science whose positions are funded through our network’s research projects or who work on topics relevant to our research focus, both in research groups of principal investigators within our network and beyond.
In addition, our programme is open to junior physicians who wish to combine patient care and scientific activities by conducting research within our network’s working groups (IRTG-light membership). This includes both clinician scientists undertaking their research rotations and medical students working on their medical doctoral thesis within the “Medizinerkolleg (MedK)” or their master’s thesis in “Experimental Medicine”.
Junior scientists who are interested in joining our IRTG, are welcome to get in touch with a description of their research project and their CV. Our careers committee decides on the admission of new members to our programme.
