Qualification Program

The qualification of a doctoral researcher includes the components field work, experimental laboratory work, and modeling. The training consists of three domains:

  • Individual research specialization
  • Professional training
  • Transferable skill competences

The study program is designed to complement the actual research and thesis work in the most time-efficient possible way. The weighting of qualification area A) doctoral thesis compared to qualification area B) training in research and course work incl. training of transferable skills is 2/3 to 1/3 and is expressed in a TransTiP credit point (TransTiP CP) scale.

The qualification program will prepare the early career scientists for environmental impact assessment and environmental problem solving by crossing disciplines on a high international level. The three research areas (1) sediment fluxes, (2) C fluxes and (3) water fluxes and water quality, define the scientific foundation of TransTiP. Understanding and assessing of Earth surface processes will be trained and achieved by joint Sino-German fieldwork in the catchment of Lake Nam Co and combined with common analytical laboratory work at the partner institutions in China and Germany. Together with seminars and modeling courses, these activities build the columns of support for TransTiP and rely on close collaboration between Chinese and German partners including both young and senior scientists.
