PhD Programme UN094

Finding an adequate supervisor for your doctoral thesis is crucial for your application for admission and furthermore for your successful graduation.

For detailed contact data of relevant supervisors please visit the thematic programmes section.

Applicants for Doctoral Studies themselves have to take care for their relevant doctoral thesis supervisor prior to the application for admission to the studies.

Please see contact data of thesis supervisors to be selected on the web site of each thematic N094 programme.
Please first try to select one thematic programme that can be assigned to your scientific backround and purpose.

It is recommended to contact possible supervisors per email in English language introducing oneself in a nutshell informing about the scientific background and purpose and attaching a CV.
In case the supervisor is interested in your application please try to fix up a personal meeting (resp. a meeting e.g. per "skype").

A peer-reviewed and funded research project raised by the N094 thesis supervisor is mandatory the doctoral thesis is assigned to. N094 supervisors shall employ their doctorands scientifically.

In case there is a supervisor not yet listed within the thematic N094 programme selected, the supervisor might contact the relevant programme coordinator in order to apply for his/her admission to the thematic programme.

Supervisors are allowed to select applicants and are not forced to accept anyone.

Please consider that an application for admission to the doctoral studies without the acceptance of an appropriate supervisor is not possible.
