Graduate School HIGRADE

Welcome to HIGRADE,


the graduate school of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ!


Thank you for your interest in our graduate school HIGRADE! If you would like to become a member of HIGRADE, the first step is to apply for a PhD position at UFZ. Please, check the open positions here (positions in English) or here (positions in German).

If you bring your own scholarship (e.g. DAAD), please use the blue button at the end of that page to make an unsolicited application. Please check the precise field you are interested in beforehand (see here).

Once you have a supervisor and are accepted as doctoral researcher at the UFZ research centre, you will be involved in our graduate programme.

Best wishes,

Dr. Jula Zimmermann, Head of HIGRADE
