5. Do applicants have to have a degree in one of the disciplines represented in the GRK 2638?
No, applicants do not necessarily have to have degrees in one of the disciplines represented in the GRK 2638. However, it is important that previous academic performance be clearly aligned with the work of the PIs at the GRK 2638. Proposed research projects should mesh well with the GRK 2638’s research programme by evidencing a strong theoretical focus. It should be clearly recognizable that the project corresponds to the thematic framework of the GRK 2638 and that the PIs are able to supervise the submitted topics. Dissertation projects must fit within the disciplines represented in the GRK 2638
