Graduate Organisation Ingenium
Counselling and Help

Ingenium – Young Researchers at TU Darmstadt is the umbrella organisation for promoting early career researchers. Together with the departments, graduate schools, and research training groups, Ingenium promotes and qualifies early career researchers at TU Darmstadt for both academic and non-academic careers.

TU Darmstadt pursues a consistent concept in the promotion of early career researchers, structured along the three qualification phases – doctoral phase (R1), postdoctoral phase (R2), qualification phase for a professorship (R3). In all qualification phases, the University aims to create optimum framework conditions and offer an outstanding environment in which young researchers can develop their potential to the best of their ability.

To achieve its goals in the promotion of early career researchers (opens in new tab) , TU Darmstadt has established a twofold support structure:

  • On a University-wide level, the umbrella organisation „Ingenium – Young Researchers at TU Darmstadt“ promotes University-wide standards in the doctoral and postdoctoral phases and offers services and information with regard to plural career options. All departments and structured doctorate programmes (e.g. graduate schools and research training groups) are open to voluntary membership.
  • On a professional level, the departments and structured doctorate programmes organised in Ingenium promote early career researchers under binding and reliable conditions and support career development.

You can find detailed information on Ingenium's range of services and membership in the university-wide Guidelines on the Promotion of Early Career Researchers by Ingenium – Young Researchers at TU Darmstadt (opens in new tab) .
