Graduate Academy

The Graduate Academy has set itself the task to promote junior scientists as comprehensively as possible in order to recruit them as the next generation of qualified young professionals for our University. As the central service and coordinating office for junior scientists, the Graduate Academy contributes to improving and developing the conditions for doctoral candidates at our University. To promote the continuing qualification of young researchers, the Graduate Academy offers qualification options for graduate students of all disciplines. On the Website of the Graduate Academy you find more information on our qualification program, membership options, funding opportunities, and current events for young researchers.


The joint project “KarriereWegeMentoring Wissenschaft M-V” is part of the state mentoring initiative, being implemented by both the University of Rostock and the University of Greifswald. The mentoring programme supports highly qualified young female scientists. The central element of the programme is the mentoring relationship between mentor and mentee. In addition, we offer a high-quality seminar programme to our mentees, which is geared towards the specific career path of young female scientists and prepares purposefully for future leadership and management duties.
