Call for applications: Doctoral Program in Democracy Studies

(January 2014) NCCR Democracy invites applications for its doctoral program in Democracy Studies. The program offers a limited number of spaces for outstanding doctoral students. Deadline for applications: 31 December 2013.

Doctoral students will benefit from a structured and targeted four-year program consisting of:

  • Intensive course on democracy studies
  • Ph.D. colloquium
  • Summer school on democracy
  • Scientific writing and project management courses
  • "À la carte"-activities, such as courses in social science methods, participation in international conferences, etc.

Participation in all activities of the doctoral program will be funded by the NCCR Democracy doctoral program. The program does not fund Ph.D. positions, participants have to assure their own funding.

  • be in a planning or an initial phase of their Ph.D.;
  • have an interest in democracy issues and in participating in a structured doctoral program;
