DFG To Set Up 32 New Postgraduate Research Groups - First "Virtual Research Group"

artist will be studied by a new postgraduate research group set up in the humanities in Berlin. It will be the first research group to be established at an academy of art. Under this programme art scholars, musicologists, educationists and literary scholars will look into the production of works of art and the working processes of artists.

In postgraduate research groups, 15 to 25 doctoral candidates work under an innovative and mostly interdisciplinary research and study programme under the direction a group of professors renowned as researchers and university teachers. About half of the students receive DFG fellowships from federal and state government grants, the rest are supported by the university. At the moment, about ten per cent of all doctoral candidates in Germany are working for their Ph.D. in postgraduate research groups. As a rule, former members of postgraduate research groups have more comprehensive qualifications and are, on average, two years younger than their fellow students.

At 330, the total number of postgraduate research groups temporarily exceeds the target of 300. This is intended to prevent a gap in funding and promotion, as about 50 of these programmes which have a nine-year duration will expire next year.

The new postgraduate research groups include:

Biosciences
'Bone substance and loss of structure: integration of cell function, biomechanics, clinical aspects and therapy'; Hamburg 'Biochemistry of enzymes'; Freiburg
'Diagnostic and therapeutic concepts in molecular medicine'; Ulm 'Glyco-conjugates: isolation, analysis, structure and function'; Hamburg 'Signalling systems and gene expression in evolutionary biology models'; Heidelberg 'Molecular veterinary medicine'; Giessen 'Vascular biology'; Munich
'Evolutive transformations and faunal breaks'; HU Berlin

Humanities
'Gerontology in psychology and psychiatry: psychological potentials and limitations of old age'; FU Berlin 'Modern knowledge areas. Emerg
