Ph.D. scholarships at University of Lübeck

The mission of the Graduate School for Computing in Medicine and Life Sciences is to train outstanding doctoral students through a structured teaching and research programme within an interdisciplinary and international environment. The PhD programme is characterized by professional supervision and quality curriculum.

In order to enrich the scientific and personal development of the young researchers, each student admitted to the PhD programme is assigned a supervision group consisting of two supervisors and an advisor. The supervision group gives personal guidance and support to the student with regard to the research project as well as the PhD study in general. Meetings are held on a regularly basis. A progress report is provided to assist the documentation process of the meeting and to keep a record of the student's activity. The meeting scheme is designed to improve the monitoring of student's performance and progress in the PhD study and to ensure the quality of the PhD programme.

Depending on the academic background of the student and the topic of the research project, an individual curriculum is developed in consultation with the supervision group at the beginning of the project. The curriculum comprises a list of courses and seminars to be taken, soft skills workshops, and other scientific events to be attended. Containing both scientific and transferable skills elements, the curriculum aims to advance students’ academic specialisations as well as to prepare them for a successful transition to the complex and changing employment market.

Successful applicants will be entitled to a monthly scholarship of 1250 EUR for 3 years, with an additional child allowance of 400 EUR for one child, 100 EUR for each more child.
