The Integrated Graduate School Solvation Science programme from Ruhr University Bochum is an education and training program for graduate students within RESOLV that supports the early research careers of solvation scientists. Doctoral degrees are granted by the appropriate faculty, which include the departments of chemistry and biochemistry, chemistry and chemical biology, physics, and engineering at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and Universität Duisburg-Essen.
Both, students with an A-Grade Master's degree (iGSS Track I) or with a top-class Bachelor's degree (iGSS Track II) have the chance to work in an inspiring and most exciting research environment. The iGSS aims at combining high-profile research and early independence along with internationalization and gender mainstreaming.
