Hands-on Experience

Doctoral students can take part in special courses organised for them (lasting from several days up to a month) at the RGZM and in labs at the Faculty of "Chemistry, Pharmacy and Geology" and the Institute "Spezielle Botanik und Botanischer Garten" at the University of Mainz to become familiar with analytical methods (especially if they are relevant for their own research), e.g. analysing minerals, taxonomy of plants (cooperating partners: Daim, Schreg, Drausch­ke, Gronenborn, Hofmeister, Kadereit).

In addition, the RGZM will offer individual instruction in methods of analysis important for the candidate's research.
