Qualification Program

Qualification Program for Doctoral Students


Interdisciplinary qualification offers for a successful doctorate

The interdisciplinary workshop and networking program offers researchers the possibility to acquire various key qualifications for an academic career. Thereby, the GradNet always has the interests of doctoral researchers in mind and plans events tailored to their needs.

The qualification program is organized by Merseburg University of Applied Sciences together with the Harz, Anhalt and Magdeburg-Stendal Universities of Applied Sciences. Participation is thus open to all HAW doctoral students in the federal state and promotes networking among early career researchers. Participation in the program is free of charge for doctoral students.

The events offered in the interdisciplinary qualification program are also open to doctoral students from Otto von Guericke University, Magdeburg. At the same time, doctoral students from the HAWs in Saxony-Anhalt participate in the OvGU's qualification program free of charge.

Would you like to take part in a specific event? Then contact Sandra Dietzel, the speaker of promoting early career researchers at Merseburg University of Applied Sciences!

In cases of cooperative doctorates, the recognition of our qualification program at the partner university can be checked individually in cooperation with us.

Program 2023

Further events are currently being planned.

You can apply for educational leave to attend our workshops if your employer is located in Saxony-Anhalt. Please contact Kerstin Tänzer on behalf of the association.
