PhD Positions

The RTG's third cohort of doctoral students have started in April 2018.

There will be no further funded positions in the future since the third cohort is the last one within GLAD.

The only possibility to enter the program is to start a PhD with one of our Principal Investigators and become an affiliated PhD student of the program. In order to do so, potential candidates would have to contact the Principal Investigators directly and individually. You can find an overview of Principal Investigators and their research projects online.
