MGK – Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG)

IRTG Committee:
Prof. Dr. Christian Behl, Institut für Pathobiochemie, Universitätsmedizin, JGU Mainz
Prof. Dr. Volker Dötsch, Institut für Biophysikalische Chemie, GU Frankfurt
Dr. Christian Pohl, Buchmann Institut & Institut für Biochemie II, GU Frankfurt

We aim to ensure a comprehensive, high-level education of PhD students and postdocs and provide a platform encouraging new ideas, concepts, and collaborations. The curriculum includes several modules:

  • IRTG lectures: Two Interdisciplinary Seminar Series on Biochemistry and Technology, both designed along the key research issues of SFB 1177 and held by the project leaders.
  • Lab Rotations to deliver hands-on training and experience in a wide range of technologies.
  • SFB 1177 seminars: The Autophagy Club lecture series (with internationally renown guest speakers).
  • Complementary Academic Training covering transferable skills.

This curriculum is complemented by an annual retreat and continuous career mentoring. The IRTG is well embedded in the already existing efforts at Frankfurt and Mainz universities for structured PhD education. Courses from the following umbrella programs are implemented in the IRTG schedule:

 

Frankfurt: Goethe Graduate Academy (GRADE)

Mainz: General Postgraduate Program (GPP)
