Admission of doctoral researchers

The application process will open by February 01, 2021

General admission process

Doctoral researchers submit a 2-page paper describing their doctoral project and the connection to the subject of the graduate school. A Curriculum Vitae (max. 2 pages) and a copy of the confirmation of registration at KHYS or letter of acceptance as doctoral researcher to the KIT Department accompanies the paper. If the supervisor is not part of the graduate school, the application should be accompanied by a short letter of recommendation. On this basis, the board of directors can evaluate the application, whether it fits the graduate school and the cooperation with the first supervisor and ideally endorse the admission. The application must be filed through our online application platform: (opening February 01, 2021)
