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


GGL Postdoc Programme is offering multi-disciplinary qualification programs, guidance, and support to researchers during the early stages of their careers. We assist postdocs in the development of their professional skills and interdisciplinary competences, so that both academic and non-academic careers become accessible. You can further read about our goals here.

The GGL Postdoc Programme is part of the Postdoc Career Mentoring Office of the JLU. PCMO Logo

The instruments of achieving the above-mentioned tasks are numerous Workshops, Coaching opportunities, PiLS Lunch, and Peer-Mentoring.

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.

For the overview of our past events see Events Archive.

Our current programme can be found here

Get together - 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 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 . Further information: Career Coaching.

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 advice in this area). We started a Postdoc-Peer-Mentoring Group in June 2018. If you are interested please contact .
