Welcome to HIGRADE!

The "Helmholtz Interdisciplinary GRADuate School for Environmental Research (HIGRADE)" is the graduate school for doctoral researchers at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ, in cooperation with partner universities and partner programmes (see here).
HIGRADE provides a coherent framework for qualifying new generations of internationally competitive doctoral researchers in the field of environmental science. Our aim is to prepare our doctoral researchers for careers in a range of environmental fields, i.e. for taking over leading positions in research, management and policy, technology development, or consulting and education. Graduate education in HIGRADE is structured, systematic and adapted to individual needs.


All international employees at the UFZ can get personal support and advice from the UFZ International Office to facilitate their start in Germany:
