Doctorate at the TUM School of Life Sciences

Doctoral candidates at TUM work on challenging scientific issues and are supervised by renowned researchers. The TUM Graduate School promotes an environment in which scientific knowledge and professional qualification are optimally intertwined. It offers all doctoral students at TUM an attractive, doctorate-accompanying advanced training program.

The Graduate Center of Life Sciences (GC LS) is an institution of the TUM Graduate School and at the same time part of the TUM School of Life Sciences. In order to provide the best possible support for doctoral students, the Graduate Center of Life Sciences designs the framework of the TUM Graduate School in a needs-oriented manner, taking local requirements into account.

General information on starting a doctorate at TUM can be found on the Website of the TUM Graduate School  and in the presentation: Doing your Doctorate at TUM & TUM Graduate School

The TUM Graduate School and the Graduate Center of Life Sciences support supervisors with various information and offers.

All lecturers/refernts/instructors offering an event for doctoral candidates can count this extracurricular teaching as teaching load, insofar the event serves to convey learning content. The instruction of the scientific way of working and supervision, also in group form, cannot be recognized for the teaching load. Further information on this and on funding of events can be found in the Wiki of the Graduate Center of Life Sciences.
