Research in Germany

Germany offers one of the best research environments worldwide, and the German doctorate enjoys an excellent reputation. A doctoral degree can be obtained through an individual doctorate or a structured doctoral programme. Research in Germany takes place at universities, applied sciences universities, non-university research institutes, companies, and federal and state institutions. We encourage potential candidates to familiarise themselves with the German research landscape before applying for the GIGA Doctoral Programme.

Brochures

Störungen im E-Mail-System des GIGA: Aufgrund technischer Probleme mit dem bestehenden System bereitet das GIGA derzeit tiefgreifende Änderungen seiner E-Mail-Infrastruktur vor. Eine verzögerte Zustellung von E-Mails kann auftreten, alle eingehenden E-Mails werden aber zugestellt werden. Wir bitten für die Unannehmlichkeiten um Entschuldigung und hoffen, bald wieder ohne Einschränkungen erreichbar zu sein.
