What you need to know about doing your PhD in Germany: PhD Topics, Supervisor(s), employment & scholarships

Untitled (12).png

If you are a master’s student thinking about continuing your academic journey—preferably in Germany–this workshop is for you! How does the German academic system work, you may wonder? What kind of opportunities and benefits does it offer? Can I take my MA thesis as a starting point for a PhD topic or should I choose a completely new topic? What are the pros and cons? How do I find a supervisor?
What, indeed, can the University of Bonn specifically offer? An expert from the University’s Research and International Office will also join us, happy to provide information and answers to your questions.
What scholarship or other employment options are generally available and how to apply for them? What qualifications are expected? The workshop will give you a general idea of what academic positions are available at German universities; what scholarship institutions exist; and what the respective application process entails. German scholarships are an attractive way for (prospective) PhD candidates to fund their research and meet doctoral students from various fields across Germany while belonging to a prestigious organization and all the benefits it offers, such as exclusive events and semi-nars, financing for international research stays or conference papers.
Graduate schools offer the opportunity to join an interdisciplinary PhD group at the chosen university and you not only get scholarship funding, but also become part of a vibrant aca-demic community in the field.
Assistant and junior professorships, principal investigator and research associate positions are excellent entry points into the German university system that also offer teaching opportunities.
