Adaptive nanosystems: Principles and applications

Our integrated research training group (RTG) is an essential platform for the scientific training
and development of all doctoral students involved in the CRC. As such the integrated RTG “Adaptive nanosystems: Principles and applications” is our “melting pot” and source of inspiration for innovative ideas. The RTG supports all aspects of scientific research to enable our doctoral students to build confidence in their scientific and communication skills. Thereby, the RTG implements the concept of self-governance in order to foster independence and academic maturity of all doctoral students and train their organizational skills with an annual budget and support by project leaders.
Within the integrated RTG, a uniform educational and supervision scheme for the doctoral students is implemented to guarantee structured doctoral training and successful timely completion of the doctoral training. Through the RTG, we are promoting exchange of project ideas through frequent progress reports (by students for students), lectures (by project leaders and guests), lab rotations and workshops. On a teaching level, we aim to broaden and deepen the knowledge of students within and
beyond the topics and methods covered within the CRC. The integrated RTG is establishing a tutorial & lecture series, as well as joint training courses, focusing on hands-on, in-lab learning and soft skill classes.
Additionally, we offer a limited number of short-term fellowships to attract talented doctoral candidates from abroad to spend up to a year at WWU Münster.
