Beyond research: Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

As Research School we are committed to creating and supporting a culture in which equality, diversity and inclusion are valued and fostered.

Different views and diverse cultural backgrounds bring about great opportunities to allow all of us to enrich our experiences and grow personally. Diversity as such is a source of inspiration and creativity, and hence a driving force towards innovation and making a difference in life.

Currently, about half of the PhD students here on campus are female, and Helmholtz Munich strives to increase the number of women researchers in leadership positions and committees. 

It is important to us to create an inclusive environment such that students feel valued and can thrive at their full potential.

We work closely with Helmholtz Munich’s International Office for onboarding, offer additional support via the Graduate School HELENA and accompany you for your next career step in collaboration with the Career Center. Equality

Above all, as PhD student you will be part of the epigenetics@HMGU community, with its more than 160 PhD students and postdocs hosted by 32 teams, and more than 17 nationalities.
