We are looking for highly motivated, excellent PhD students with a strong interest in interdisciplinary research.

The Graduate School is an integral component of the interdisciplinary research in the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Heidelberg. Its aim is to foster the productive use of existent cross- and interdisciplinary research at the University of Heidelberg and to promote innovative, interdisciplinary research projects in these areas. Thematically, the research projects should contribute to the Field of Focus 3, “Cultural dynamics in globalized worlds” and/or Field of Focus 4, “Self-regulation and regulation: individuals and organizations” (http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/forschung/profil/fields_of_focus).

The prestigious Graduate School offers a dynamic and collaborative research and study environment with an excellent national and international network. Successful applicants will benefit from a structured graduate programme which contains a large selection of core seminars and other courses in English and German. The scholarships of € 1.110 per month are intended for national and international applicants and have a duration of two years, with the possibility of a one-year extension. The earliest starting date is 1 October 2014.

Applicants must hold an M.A. or equivalent in one of the disciplines of the Humanities or Social Sciences with an above-average grade (at least 1.7, 5.5, B+, 2+, “magna cum laude”, or similar). The transcript has to indicate at least four years of study at the university level. Excellent knowledge of English or German, in addition to another language, is expected.
