Short term stays for prospective doctoral candidates at the University of Bremen

Professors of the University of Bremen can apply for funding to invite prospective doctoral candidates from abroad for a one to two week stay in Bremen. During the stay, potential supervisors may receive a comprehensive personal impression of the international graduates and explore possible research topics for a doctoral thesis. Prospective doctoral researchers can get to know the University and the city of Bremen and have an insight into their future work environment.

We only have very limited funds left. Please contact Leonie Wiemeyer before submitting an application. Funding periods have to be completed on 30 June 2019 at the latest due to the expiration of the project.


Application documents include:

Application, submitted by the professor (maximum 3 pages) with information on:
1. Period, objectives and schedule for the stay
2. Short description and planned financing options for the PhD project
3. Assessment of the specific qualification of the candidate

Documents provided by the candidate:
1. Letter of motivation
2. CV
3. Certificates and academic performance

All documents can be submitted either in English or German. Please combine all documents into one single PDF and upload it via the online form.
