The geo-Q Research Training Group (RTG)

The RTG

geo-Q offers one of the largest structured doctoral programmes in Hannover, hosting all of our PhD students involved in geo-Q. We also encourage young researchers to join the group and take active part in our various activities. We welcome all geo-Q members and people who work on related projects to participate in our activities. We are international and multi-disciplinary with backgrounds in geodesy, theoretical physics and experimental physics.

SCOPE AND MISSIONS -

SCIENCE, ENGINEERING AND EDUCATION

The RTG provides a broad education to PhD students both in experimental aspects of relativistic geodesy, gravimetry and quantum sensors as well as in theory. This is achieved by combining learning on the job with our three pillars, specialised lectures regularly given at our university, special courses given by geo-Q scientists, and lecture weeks. We make this unique interdisciplinary education programme specifically tailored to the needs of a future generation of geodesists having expertise in relativity and quantum optics, an emerging field that requires a specialised interdisciplinary education not to be found in an integrated fashion like this anywhere in the world.
