Integrated Research Training Group
Graduate College "Junior HoMMage"

The integrated research training group (IRTG, MGK) ‘Junior HoMMage’ is part of the CRC 270 and aims at educating the next generation of magnetism researchers in Germany. The IRTG involves researchers from TU Darmstadt, University Duisburg-Essen, Max-Planck Institute for Iron Research and Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons (ER-C) at Forschungszentrum Jülich. We have 18 PhD students, 9 postdocs and further associates coming from a variety of disciplines such as Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering. The integrated research training group ensures that young researchers receive excellent training in an outstanding network of experts at leading institutions. We intend to bridge the length scale of 250 km between our regions by push-button digital communication and joint working technologies including the development of suited data management systems.

Junior HoMMage offers the following to its young researchers:

  • an annual Junior HoMMage Doctoral Retreat
  • an annual internal CRC/TRR 270 workshop
  • a summer school once per funding period
  • (digital) research meetings
  • a CRC colloquium series
  • lecture series
  • an annual demonstrator experiment
  • recruiting fellowships and career fellowships
  • interuniversity exchange interaction
  • international exchange interaction with international partners offering additional expertise
  • courses and coaching for key qualification skills by Ingenium Young Researchers (Darmstadt) and Graduate Center Plus (Duisburg-Essen)
