The professors and senior researchers at the GIGA and its partner universities and institutes have extensive experience supervising and mentoring doctoral students. Their participation in the selection process, the research colloquium, and on the doctoral board ensures the high quality of the GIGA Doctoral Programme.
The student body is composed of talented young researchers from all over the world and from different disciplinary backgrounds. Our fellows are either self-funded (e.g. scholarship) or work in third party-funded projects at the GIGA while simultaneously pursuing their doctoral degrees.
The GIGA takes pride in conducting research within the regions and with experts from the regions. To promote cooperation and exchange amongst doctoral students, we offer stays for visiting doctoral researchers at the GIGA.
