PhD Programme | Offers

We are constantly striving to improve the PhD programme with the greatest possible freedom and the best possible structure. This applies to communication with and between our PhDs, the range and design of events and workshops, the overview of and advice on funding, the teaching programme for PhDs, the Erasmus programme for PhD candidates, etc., etc. Self-organised networking and the setting of own impulses by PhD candidates are very welcome!

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems or conflicts in the supervision process.
