About 85 to 95% of all chemists with a diploma or master’s degree begin a doctorate.
A doctorate can be completed as an individual doctorate degree or within a structured doctoral program. The umbrella organization for structured doctoral qualification at Leipzig University is the Research Academy Leipzig.
At the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy the following interdisciplinary doctoral programs have been established:

Leipzig School of Natural Sciences – Building with Molecules and Nano-objects (BuildMoNa)

Applied and Theoretical Molecular Electrochemistry as the Key to New Technologies for Energy Conversion and Storage (ESF)

Tools and Technologies for Rational Drug Development (ESF)

Function through Self-assembly: Emerging Properties of Atom and Molecular Aggregates (ESF)
