Welcome to the homepage of the RTG 2740!

The Research Training Group  2740 (“Graduiertenkolleg 2740”) is a newly  approved  research consortium funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) that consists of 11 research groups focussing on the in situ analysis of  micromilieu factors and metabolites in the context of microbial infections (“immunomicrotope”).

The RTG 2740 will provide 14 positions for doctoral candidates in natural science (Dr. rer. nat. candidates) and 4 positions per year for medicine (Dr. med. candidates). The structured training program of the RTG will convey the necessary theoretical knowledge, technical capabilities and general research skills to the doctoral candidates in order to allow for an efficient analysis of the “immunomicrotope” and a successful thesis work. Among other components, it consists of introductory lectures on infectious disease immunology, practical courses and workshops, guest seminars, a doctoral candidates´ jour fixe, an annual retreat, international laboratory exchanges, and participation in the institutional research meetings and journal clubs.

With the help of a thorough supervision strategy the RTG will promote and foster a professional and creative attitude amongst the doctoral candidates, characterized by enthusiasm for science, commitment to the project and the development of own scientific ideas and concepts.

The program will start on January 1st, 2022. Applications are invited now (for details see “How to apply”).
