In the GGL, doctoral projects are embedded in topic-oriented research. Admission is international, and teaching is carried out in the English language. In association with the GGL the medical faculties offer a PhD – MD/PhD programme.


Programme Overview

Are you prepared to run your own lab? Are you prepared to teach your own courses? Are you prepared to work in an industrial setting? 

These are fundamental questions for most of the postdoc's in the life sciences. The GGL postdoc programme is dedicated to help you answering your questions to your professional development.


To participate in our Survey please click here.




We offer a series of career development workshops expecially for postdocs of the life-sciences. Ideally you start your postdoc-phase by getting orientation on your professional future. Later you may want to work on your leadership skills or learn other important soft-skills in our trainings. 

Our current programme can be found here.


Postdoc in Life Science (PiLS) - Lunch

Get togtether - stay in touch. The PiLS Lunch is the perfect excuse to leave the everyday-trap: Get in touch with your peers; learn about their experiences not only with everyday lab-life but with the academic system and germany at large; find new contacts, collaborators and friends; and have a good time eating out. We currently meet every second Monday of a month. The next Postdoc Lunches will be 07.Oct (grant application process), 11.Nov (Mentoring programms for postdocs), 09.Dec (open topic), at 12:30 (approximately until 14:00 h) in the restaurant Brasserie, Klinikstr. 21.  Please register at:  .


We offer a career counceling and coaching to help you find your next career step. While a counceling usually is a short term intervention dedicated to help you find missing information, career coaching usually is a longer process dedicated to help you reflect on your current situation and problems and designed to help you find your own solutions.

If you are interested in either career counceling or coaching please contact me at .

Peer Mentoring is a form of mentorship that usually takes place between a person who has lived through a specific experience (peer mentor) and a person who is new to that experience (the peer mentee). It is also possible that your role in a peer-mentoring group will change: while you are an expert in e.g. grant-writing (and hence be a mentor in this regard) you may experience a lack of leadership skills (and end up as a mentee; looking for advies in this area). We started a Postdoc-Peer-Mentoring Group in June 2018. If you are interested in joining or want to start your own group please contact .
