Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG)
Welcome to the website of the Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) of the CRC1242!
On this page, we will tell you about the IRTG, how to apply, our annual Ph.D. Retreat, and our upcoming and previous events.
What is the IRTG?
The Integrated Research Training Group is part of the CRC 1242 and is co-hosted by Marika Schleberger and Jürgen König. The IRTG supports the CRC in qualifying the doctoral students for the research program and for a later career in academia, industry, and administration. It offers doctoral students a comprehensive training program in fundamental sciences and key skills.
The over 40 Ph.D. students are represented by six Ph.D. spokespersons that are elected by the Ph.D.'s annually on the Ph.D. Retreat. Together with the CRC1242 office, they organize the annual Ph.D. Retreat, group-building activities, or small presents in Easter and Christmas time.
This year, the annual Ph.D. retreat took place in Schloss Buchenau from 20.-23.06.
It covered different areas over all stages of the Ph.D. From all-day applicable workshops like "Voice and Speech" and "Work-Life-Sleep-Balance" to workshops for the life after the Ph.D. like "Job Search - Perspectives after the Ph.D." and "Self-reflection: The capability of leaders ".
Find out more information, like the program, the scope, and the coaches for the workshop, on our Ph.D. Retreat 2022 website you can find below.
A more detailed report will appear here shortly.
