>> DOCTORAL MEMBERSHIP

 

The Graduate School offers a versatile programme to create a supportive research environment in order to assist doctoral students throughout their learning and working process. The Graduate School supports its doctoral members by providing them with necessary funds as well as by integrating them into its research community and its international scientific network. If needed, doctoral members of BAGSS might also be provided with working space and technical equipment. Apart from their doctoral projects, doctoral members of BAGSS complete a structured programme, aimed to provide with all necessary tools for their academic and professional development. Here you can find out more on our doctoral programme.

Doctoral members at the Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences either receive a Starter Scholarship from the Graduate School or are funded by an external source, typically a position as research or teaching fellows at a university chair or a scholarship from one of the numerous national or international foundations.

More information on running scholarship programmes for doctoral candidates you can find here. Moreover, the Graduate Center Trimberg Research Academy (TRAc) of the University of Bamberg offers consultation hours for doctoral candidates in search for funding for their doctoral studies.
