The support for early career researchers is of central interest for the University of Cologne. Excellent framework conditions have been created for PhD students with the specific development and expansion of structured doctoral training. The Cologne Graduate School in Management, Economics and Social Sciences (CGS) is the roof for all doctoral students of the Wiso Faculty. Numerous networking and further education offers for PostDocs provide targeted support for further scientific development.

With the foundation of the university-wide Albertus Magnus Graduate Center (AMGC) within the Institutional Strategy, different structures have been brought together. Besides the support for PhD students, the support for postdoctoral researchers on their way to scientific independence is of high priority for the UoC.
