The aim of the doctoral and postdoctoral phase is to train creative, critical and autonomous researchers. “Skills development should be driven by the doctoral candidates [and postdocs] themselves, in consultation with their supervisory team, to help them to mature and become independent both in their research and in their personal development” (LERU Advice Paper, Good practice elements in doctoral training, 2014, p. 5). The legal basis is defined in the doctoral study regulations of each faculty and in the habilitation regulations of the University of Basel.
