The Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS) invites applications to its PhD program.
The program will commence on September 1st.
Successful applicants for the PhD and Post-doc fellowships will pursue a topic in one of BIGSSS’ five Thematic Fields.
All fellows are expected to choose Bremen as their place of residence.
They offer 15 PhD stipends of 1250 Euros/month for 36 months, contingent on successful completion of each year.
To support its PhD fellows in achieving early scientific independence, it also provides funds for conducting, presenting and publishing research.
There is no separate funding application, because all admitted applicants receive a stipend.
