The Graduate School

The Graduate School (GS)  sits within the Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources at Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg.  

First established in 2002, the GS is currently in a phase of new growth and development, with dedicated staff to support the Faculty's PhD students. Kimberley O’Sullivan is our new Managing Director, and she is supported by Esther Muschelknautz as Coordinator. 


 The Goals of the Graduate School (GS) are to:

  • Provide support to GS-members on their PhD journeys
  • Foster science communication
  • Increase the visibility of the Faculty's research
  • Enhance inter- and trans- disciplinary research and collaboration

Our members are graduate students who are currently working towards a PhD in our faculty.  Members may choose to attend any of our optional events, workshops, or courses, and those who meet particular attendance criteria can be awarded a GS-ESGC Certificate on award of their PhD.
