GSNS calls for applications four times a year. You can apply for a PhD position via:
Here you can apply for a PhD position with your own project description. An application for the general call must include a project description (½-4 pages), where you describe your ideas and research plans for your project. You can indicate a URL to further information, if you like.
Before starting the application process, it is strongly recommended that you contact a prospective supervisor in order to discuss a potential project. This may contribute to writing a better and more targeted application. Furthermore, it is a good idea to inquire about possible financing, since the likelihood of securing admission through the general call depends on the available resources of the supervisor and the PhD programme for which you apply.
You can find AU researchers/potential supervisors by searching on subject headings here. Furthermore, you can find more info on the various PhD programmes at GSNS on each of the programme websites.
It is not a requirement that the applicant has been in contact with a prospective supervisor before the application process begins.
Before you apply, please read the application guide thoroughly. All applications must be submitted via the application portal.
Here you apply for one of the positions on the list of specific calls below. Please note that the list is regularly updated. The list will be complete approximately two weeks before application deadline. If you can’t find a project within your field of research on the list, please have a look later or apply via the general call.
Before you apply, please read the application guide thoroughly. Please follow the application instructions in the specific call announcement.
You can use the filter function to narrow down your search field or search for something specific.
