Interdisciplinary PhDs in biological physics

The German Research Foundation (DFG) will in future fund a new Research Training Group (RTG) in biological physics at Göttingen University. A total of 25 PhD students and one data scientist will thus receive financial support for their structured training in an interdisciplinary field of physics. The Research Training Group (GRK) is an initiative of the Faculties of Physics, of Chemistry, and of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Göttingen with the participation of the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Natural Sciences in Göttingen. The designated spokesperson of the Research Training Group is MBExC member Prof. Dr. Sarah Köster from the Institute of X-Ray Physics. The DFG will initially fund the RTG for five years, starting in January 2023, with an expected budget of around 6.9 million euros.
