In addition to the focus on research into Religion and Politics there are numerous other internationally renowned areas in which Münster University carries out top-level research, for example in Planetology, Life sciences, Network research and Chemistry or Mathematics.
Münster University supports its junior academics as much as it can. Once a supervisor has been found for a doctoral thesis the next step is to apply to the University and enrol. Research Training Groups and funding programmes can help to finance the time when the thesis is being written.
Münster University has strong partners in the fields of research and business. Affiliated institutes, cooperation partners such as the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Biomedicine and endowed professorships in various fields, such as battery research – all of these are extremely valuable for the success of work done at a research university.
