The project scholarships support master’s students in developing a doctoral dissertation exposé with the goal of obtaining PhD funding. They begin in June 2019. International students are strongly encouraged to apply.
The doctoral positions are coupled with a travel budget and allow for funding requests to be made to the school’s board for academic events. All applicants must provide proof of financial support via a scholarship or academic post by summer 2019.
Please find further information on the application process here (only in German).
Advertisements are issued once a year on our website, in DIE ZEIT, on academics.de and further European online services. The advertisement is announced in October.
The online application platform will open on November 2018 (to be specified) and remain active until the deadline. Please note that the application platform and form are available in German only.
Following the review of the applications in January you will get notified in case your application cannot be considered on formal grounds. Every formally accepted application enters an internal assessment procedure in January. In March, the admission committee chooses approximately 30 applicants based on the internal votes who are invited for the selection interviews in March/April. In case you have not been chosen, you will be notified promptly.
The selection interviews take place in March/April. Every applicant gets the opportunity to present his or her project orally in 5-10 minutes. A discussion of about 10-15 minutes follows. The supervisors mentioned in your applications are invited to this interview. You do not need to bring your application documents with you. In any case, you will be notified promptly after the selection interviews.
Doctoral positions will start in October 2019.
