The Graduate School of Excellence Materials Science in Mainz (MAINZ) is an international doctoral program composed of 60 to 80 doctoral students. The program is conducted by excellent scientists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) and University of Kaiserslautern (TUKL). As part of the Excellence Initiative, MAINZ has been awarded a federal grant twice as one of the few doctoral programs in the interdisciplinary area of Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. Our three-year training program focuses on training through research and training for life that supply the intellectual framework necessary to become an independent scientist. Networking is one of the key aspects of the program reflected in all training offered. This aspect is embodied in our mentoring program mentMAINZ, which provides our doctoral students with early contact with international leaders in science and industry.
