Quality development and assurance at the doctoral level

As part of its objective to fully support junior researchers, the Graduate Campus aims to establish a sustainable culture of cooperative quality development and assurance at the doctoral level.

Funding provided by the Graduate Campus

Through calls for funding proposals, the Graduate Campus encourages and financially supports a variety of measures for decentralized quality development and assurance at the doctoral level. The calls are aimed at directors and coordinators of doctoral programs at UZH as well as those responsible for graduate schools. More...
 

The funding provided by the Graduate Campus also supports measures for the quality development and assurance of doctoral candidate supervision, such as the development and implementation of qualification opportunities for supervisors (courses, workshops, coaching, etc.).    
 

Successfully realized measures are exemplarily presented and discussed at meetings of the Network Doctoral Programs. Based on these experiences, proposals can be submitted in the context of annual calls for proposals and financially supported by the Graduate Campus.

Opportunities for supervisors

For postdoctoral researchers the Graduate Campus offers a course on lateral leadership skills and a supervision training through which participants gain valuable skills for the supervision of doctoral candidates and leading of research groups.  More...
