At the moment, there are no open PhD positions.


Renewable raw materials are becoming increasingly important as an alternative resource base in industrial corporate networks. The RTG develops methods to improve the efficient use of renewable resources in production processes with by-products in the research areas: materials and technology (A), planning of production and supply chains for renewable resources (B), and governance, coordination and distribution (C). The investigation focuses on wood and other fibrous raw materials used in the manufacturing and process industry. Several levels of the value chain as well as steering cross-divisional functions are taken into consideration. Thus, the research training group will help to train a future generation of academics in this very interdisciplinary field. The research in the domains of wood science, business administration, business informatics, and applied mathematics, which are involved in this RTG, has industrial use of lignocellulosic material as a common starting point.

The RTG 1703 offers:

  • cooperation in an interdisciplinary, motivated research team,
  • an attractive and customized training program,
  • an intensive mentoring by an interdisciplinary team of supervisors, and
  • extensive support for international conferences, guest residences and qualification courses.


  • The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply as they are underrepresented in this field. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude will be favoured.

    Detailed information on the research topics and the training program are available on this website.
    An overview on the study program beginning October 2015 is provided here.

    Persons who are funded by other sources and want to be associated with the RTG should submit theitr application via the online application platform. Associated doctoral students participate in the programm the same way as DFG-funded doctoral students, but receive their salary from other sources, e.g. from an appointment as a research associate at a chair or via a scholarship. Suitable applications for scholarships will be supported.
    You find the online application platform here. Only applications submitted via the application platform will be considered in the selection process.
