The HZB has launched the programme PhD Student Research abroad to support research stays abroad.
The programme is intended to give doctoral researchers the opportunity to gain international experience in their field of research outside Germany.
The stay abroad has to be arranged in a way that it fits into the regular 3 years' time for the doctorate. To guarantee a close matching of the research topic abroad and the subject of the thesis the application has to be submitted by the supervisor in cooperation with the doctoral researcher.
Application is possible at any time.
