The University of Konstanz is one of eleven Universities of Excellence in Germany. Since 2007, it has been successful in the German Excellence Initiative and its follow-up programme, the Excellence Strategy.

The Graduate School of the Social and Behavioural Sciences (GSBS) at the University of Konstanz is pleased to announce the availability of funded positions for PhD candidates, starting in October 2022.

Applications are welcome from highly motivated graduates with an outstanding research-oriented Master’s degree, or equivalent, in a subject relevant to one of the eight disciplines or three optional interdisciplinary specialisations of the GSBS:

Disciplines:

Biology, Economics, Linguistics, Political Science and Public Administration, Physics, Psychology, Sociology, and Statistics.

Interdisciplinary Specialisations

Collective Behaviour, Decision Sciences, Inequality.

Aside from the eight renowned departments, the Excellence Clusters “Collective Behaviour” and “The Politics of Inequality” contribute to the curriculum and research activities of the GSBS.

Master’s graduates with related degrees and final-year Master’s students are welcome to apply. The GSBS PhD Programme is designed for candidates with exceptional intellectual abilities and a strong desire to pursue academic research.

The research of the GSBS investigates behaviour from both the micro and macro perspective. At the micro level, research questions address determinants and processes, which guide individual behaviour. At the macro level, questions on decision making in collectives are explored, for instance, in groups, markets, societies or political organisations. The combination of eight disciplines and three interdisciplinary specialisations in the GSBS provides the basis for fascinating synergies, as similar research questions are addressed from different perspectives.

The innovative GSBS training programme and its open and communicative academic environment provide the ideal conditions for guiding PhD students towards scientific excellence. Our PhD students benefit from our connections to a wide variety of national and international network partners. They also receive targeted career preparation to facilitate their entry into academic positions at leading universities and research institutions.

Application deadline for admission in October 2022: 15th April 2022.
