Open Office Hours

GRADE provides personal advice to doctoral candidates and advanced master's students on questions related to completing a doctorate at Goethe University, such as questions about the application process, registration, finding a supervisor, financial matters and about other resources, such as the support and services offered to doctoral candidates by GRADE.

As a postdoc, you might think about how best to advance your scientific career, which career options you might have and how Goethe University can support your career path.

To make an appointment for a counseling session, please contact a member of the GRADE team who is in charge of the research field you are interested in. We are happy to help you with any questions you might have during your PhD and postdoc time.
