Research Academy

Network | Cooperation Partners

JMU Research Academy is a virtual umbrella that collects and bundles the offers on the topic of academic staff development and promotion of young researchers from all JMU institutions. Together we are developing a portfolio of events and advisory services that will provide all scientists at JMU with the best possible support on their individual career paths in science, business and society. This process is currently coordinated by the Office of Personnel Development for Academic Staff, located in the Research Advancement Centre.

Research Advancement Centre

The Research Advancement Centre develops and implements strategic, capacity-building measures with the aim of promoting excellence in research. In the process, scientists are supported and accompanied in their application projects.

This is where the office for academic staff development is located, which is responsible for coordinating the JMU Research Academy.


University of Würzburg Graduate Schools

The UWGS as a central academic institution is divided into four schools: the Graduate School of Life Science, Humanities, Science and Technology, and Law, Economics and Society. The UWGS thus offers structured doctoral training in diverse subject areas.


With ProfiLehre, the University of Würzburg offers its lecturers a thematically wide-ranging didactic training programme. The seminars, workshops and lectures focus on the practice-oriented teaching of higher educational didactic competences.
