Prisma is committed to promoting the education and career of students and researchers at all stages of their academic career.

Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU) provides students and doctoral candidates with an excellent training environment. Besides the possibility to complete an individual doctorate in one of the cluster’s affiliated working groups – funded by the cluster itself or by other third-party funded projects – the Graduate School “Symmetry Breaking in Fundamental Interactions” offers a structured PhD program. 

Postdoctoral researchers benefit from an excellent research environment and from the unique scientific infrastructure at JGU and within PRISMA. Not to mention the opportunities arising from strong international networks and collaborations of PRISMA’s scientific members.

One of PRISMA's important strategic aims is to achieve equality between male and female scientists at the institutional and research level. The set up of the Irène Joliot-Curie Programme aims to support women in all phases of their scientific carriers both at the cluster and in their broader research work.

Furthermore, PRISMA supports the coordination of a comprehensive schoolchildren programme to stimulate and strengthen the interest in physics of our potential future academics.
