Graduate students at Helmholtz Zentrum München have a three-year working contract and are fully integrated into international research projects. They will usually receive their doctoral degree from one of the Munich universities (LMU or TUM). Strong networking between Helmholtz Zentrum München and the two Munich universities is ensured through joint appointments as well as through joint centers for translational medicine and numerous interdisciplinary research projects.
