Graduate School Solvation Science

The Graduate School Solvation Science (Dean: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Marcus Petermann) was established at the beginning of 2013 and is a new international Graduate School for doctoral students. It was born out of the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV and is thematically closely linked with solvation science. The school aims at combining high-profile research and early scientific independence along with internationalization and gender mainstreaming.

We offer a three-year structured graduate programme that combines cutting-edge research with a structured curriculum of lectures, colloquia, and workshops, which are all centered on areas of solvation science; see the Training Schedule section for more details. Fundamental elements of the study programme are the annual GSS workshops and Summer Schools. These events are organised by RESOLV members along with partner institutions of the International Faculty (IF) and include, for example, the invitation of selected international keynote speakers.

Currently, we have circa 100 members all working on topics closely related to solvation science. We are always happy to welcome new members, if you are interested, please contact us.
