Your place for a doctorate in Magdeburg

A fundamental question at the beginning of the doctorate is the funding and thus the place for the doctorate. In principle, there are four main possibilities: a position as an employee at the university, a scholarship, a cooperation with a company and extra-occupational.

The most frequent cases are positions as scientific staff employees. Several foundations and public institutions award scholarships to doctoral students for funding of the doctorate. In the case of a scholarship, however, you must take care of a health insurance.

Another possibility is to purse a PhD in cooperation with a company. 

Doctoral studies in cooperation with a university abroad are possible - for Cotutelle doctorates, please contact the International Office.
