Lectures SS 2020


Within the Research Training Group, various lectures are offered to advanced master's students and doctoral researchers. These lectures are categorized in four different groups:

  1. Basics
  2. Phenomena
  3. Computational Methods and
  4. Field Theory and Renormalization Group Methods

Each doctoral student is recommended to attend some of these lectures during the first years of his or her PhD studies. Please find the corresponding courses for the upcoming summer semester 2020 in the box below. Many of the lectures belonging to the two methodological topics are held in block courses before or after the actual lecture times in the semester.

Additionally, PhD students are also recommended to visit those master's courses which are of relevance for their studies.

Also, doctoral researchers are encouraged to attend some master's courses in Experimental Solid State Physics that are related to their individual research topics. Beginning in the winter semester 2014/15, all master's courses will be given in English.

Finally, the Center for Doctoral Studies offers a variety of key skill courses, including "Good Scientific Writing", "Academic Presenting" and "Speech and Debate". Some of the courses are given in English, others in German. Additionally, students can apply for language classes in English, German and other languages at the Center for Doctoral Studies.
