The group of doctoral researchers at the GIGA is composed of talented junior researchers from all over the world and from different disciplinary backgrounds. Our doctoral researchers are either self-funded (e.g. scholarship) or work in third party-funded projects at the GIGA while simultaneously pursuing their doctoral degrees.
Exchange and cooperation with scholars from around the world is a decades-long tradition at the GIGA. To promote cooperation and exchange amongst doctoral researchers, we offer stays for visiting doctoral researchers at the GIGA.
The professors and senior researchers at the GIGA and its partner universities and institutes have extensive experience supervising and mentoring doctoral researchers. Their participation in the selection process, the research colloquium, and on the doctoral board ensures the high quality of the GIGA Doctoral Programme.
