Doctoral Researchers

Doctoral researchers

Currently, 20 doctoral researchers (from the Universtity Duisburg-Essen and six external institutions in Bochum, Cologne, Koblenz/Landau, Kiel, Berlin and Magdeburg) are part of the IRTG belonging to the different research projects within RESIST.

Each doctoral researcher has a Supervisory Team which includes the PI from the corresponding project, a PI from another project within RESIST and a non-academic mentor. The supervisors provide support to the doctoral researchers in directing their research activities, in giving regular feedback on preliminary results and secondment experiences, and in monitoring their personal career development plans.

Detailed information about each doctoral researcher, the projects and the supervisory teams can be found under the corresponding project.
