Helmholtz International Research School for Teratronics


Mentoring is a key element of a PhD program and it is crucial for a student to have a mentor by his/her side. That is why HIRST combines technical training with mentoring to support doctoral researchers scientifically and personally.

There are two mentors assigned to each doctoral candidate - the main supervisor and the mentor accompanying the work for a doctorate.

These are the components of the mentoring concept at the Helmholtz International Research School for Teratronics:

Personal scientific mentoring of the research project
Support and personal coaching in structuring, planning, and presenting a research project
Peer-to-peer coaching at the annual meeting of doctoral students or in preparation of scientific presentations at meetings
