The Research Training Group (RTG)

The RTG (see https://dpe.uni-passau.de for more information) is a postgraduate excellence programme and interdisciplinary research community. It is comprised of 22 doctoral (PhD) and postdoctoral students, nine principal investigators/doctoral supervisors and an international network of research partners from the disciplines of information systems, management, organisation, marketing, economics and communication studies. The RTG is organised in three interdisciplinary thematic areas:  

  • Data exchange in digital platform ecosystems

  • Socio-economic and regulatory dimensions of digital platform ecosystems

Positions are available for three years, and are remunerated with an internationally competitive salary (75%–100% FTE, TV-L 13) with social security and healthcare contributions. The RTG is generously funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG; https://www.dfg.de/en/). Doctoral researchers are closely mentored by at least two professors and receive a tailored, interdisciplinary training programme, including a three-month research stay abroad to promote internationally competitive top-level research around the phenomenon of digital platform ecosystems. The research programme is fully funded, including office space, equipment, research expenses and travel grants. The RTG is based at the University of Passau, which has an outstanding international reputation in research and teaching, a strong focus on digitalisation and digital technologies as well as an award-winning campus in one of the most beautiful historic towns in Europe.
