Profile of HIGRADE participants
I was aware of the diverse research centres/institutes of Helmholtz throughout Germany and came to know about the UFZ through a PhD offer posted online.
The UFZ has a lot of which a researcher can hope for: - Very well equipped facilities - appealing working environment - convincing strategy for the support of their young academics
Leipzig is an exciting city that features a great range of leisure activities and attractive accomodation - both at very affordable costs.
So far, I rather enjoy the atmosphere at the institute. HIGRADE looks very promising so far.
