Your training at the FMP Graduate School

All Phd students participate in the program of the FMP Graduate School, which consists of Thesis Committee Meetings, Scientific Training and Career Training.
Additionally the FMP has concluded cooperaton agreements with the Humboldt Graduate School (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin) and the Dahlem Research School (Freie Universität Berlin) to extend the range of courses. The FMP offers a lively and stimulating environment for students including many events with our Campus neighbor, the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC).


Getting started: Three important steps to take!
Register at the FMP Graduate School, enroll at your university and your supervision agreement

FIRST STEP: Every PhD student needs to register for the FMP Graduate School. The registration form can be found in the FMP-Intranet (Junior scientists/PhD students/Graduate School).

SECOND STEP: Within three month after start of work the PhD student has to apply for admission at the doctorate office of his university. After enrolling, the university will provide you with a semester ticket, which serves as a ticket for public transportation. Information about the enrollment process are provided here: HU Chemistry, HU Biology, FU Biology, Chemistry and Pharmacy.

THIRD STEP: The members of the thesis committee and the working title of the dissertation must be chosen no later than six months after the start of the PhD. The doctoral student and the supervisor conclude a supervision agreement  within the first six months. A copy of the supervision agreement can be found here: Supervision Agreement.
