Structured doctoral programs

Doctoral program “Language – Literature – Society”

Written by

spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Andrea Jäger, coordinator: Johannes Brambora

The contents of the study program are designed to make the interdisciplinary dialogue from the individual philologies fruitful for an understanding of modern societies in terms of cultural studies and to relate to discourse patterns of different language areas and cultures. Within the framework of the offered research program, the literary, comparative and linguistic approaches and methods are devoted primarily to the interrelationships of influence between literature or language and the formations of social and cultural reality from the 19th century to the present. Following the procedures of postmodern theory-building to focus on the constructed nature of social reality, the reality of social constructs is the focus of research interest here. [read more]

With the doctoral program Language – Literature – Society, the Faculty of Philosophy II of Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg provides a research-oriented, interdisciplinarily structured teaching programme for doctoral candidates in linguistics, speech and literature., website

International Graduate School “The obligation of societal norms”

Written by

spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Heiner F. Klemme, Prof. Dr. Andreas Pečar
(funding since 2018)

The research of the international graduate school focuses on a central inter- and transdisciplinary question: How are political, ethical, legal, religious, cultural, or aesthetic norms and values made binding or acknowledged as binding for individuals within a society? Connected with this central question, we also ask: What sources of authority are concerned with justifying the recognition of these norms and values, or with motivating members of society to adhere to them? Are the rules, principles, and laws explicitly formulated or are they simply implicitly assumed? What are the relationships and tensions between transcendental sources of legitimacy and authority on the one hand and worldly contexts of justification on the other? What societal ideals do these norms and values express? Are they responding to specific cultural, social, philosophical, and religious conflicts, crises, or upheavals? Can societal processes and revolutions be triggered, in their turn, by discourses about norms and obligations? [read more]

The graduate school is part of the Center of Excellence, “Enlightenment – Religion – Knowledge” established through an initiative of the state of Saxony-Anhalt in October, 2006. Its objective is the interdisciplinary investigation of the transformation of the religious and the rational in the modern period. (Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Andreas Pečar) website

integrated Research Training Group “Ultrafast Spin Dynamics”

Written by

Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Wolf Widdra, coordinator: Dr. Britta Anstötz
funding period 2018-2021 by DFG

The iRTG offers a structured qualification program in scientific and key skills to all PhD students financed and associated to the CRC/TRR. Research focuses on Ultrafast Dynamics of Magnetic Order and Ultrafast Spin Currents. Its training is divided into research training in several laboratories and in different research contexts, as well as an external training program, which offers courses for key skills. The PhD students have many occasions to actively learn about the works of their colleagues in the CRC, to communicate science and to discuss their own scientific results. The scientific exchange is fostered by a set of opportunities, such as training in other than their own labs, tutorials, seminars and a retreat. [read more]

International Research Training Group TreeDì

Written by

Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Helge Bruelheide, coordinator: Dr. Stefan Trogisch
funding since 2018 by DFG and UCAS

Biodiversity-Ecosystem-Functioning (BEF) research in forests has become a vibrant field of research in the last decade. The aim of TreeDì – 林地 (lín dì, forest land) is to understand how tree-tree interactions in local neighbourhoods of varying diversity translate into the observed positive tree species richness effects on key ecosystem functions at the community scale. Tree-tree interactions range from above- and belowground competition to resource use complementarity and facilitation. In-depth knowledge of each interaction type and interdisciplinary teamwork are essential to understand the underlying processes. All research projects are carried out on the BEF-China platform in subtropical China  – the largest forest BEF experiment worldwide. [read more]

TreeDì – 林地 – TreeDiversity Interactions: The role of tree-tree interactions in local neighbourhoods in Chinese subtropical forests” is an International Research Training Group funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS).

  • Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena
  • Universität Leipzig
  • Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing
