Are you interested in our programme for doctoral candidates and want to learn more about it? We have created a summary for you that contains the main questions and answers on application, employment and acceptance. 

  • HOW CAN I APPLY FOR A DOCTORATE?

    MAN cooperates closely in research collaborations with selected universities and chairs.  

    In the case of new research projects, the content and necessary qualifications for the doctoral position are jointly defined between MAN and the collaborating chair. The job advertisement is then published in the MAN job portal and also via the collaborating chair. 

  • HOW ARE DOCTORAL CANDIDATES EMPLOYED?

    Doctoral candidates are generally employed as research associates at the chair and work at MAN (external doctorate) for the duration of the doctorate (usually three years).  

    There are also employees at MAN who are pursuing a doctorate on a part-time basis (internal doctorate).  

  • WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE DOCTORATE?

    We naturally want to use the MAN doctoral programme to recruit committed and highly qualified early career researchers into MAN. We therefore strive to employ candidates at MAN after completion of the doctorate and this occurs via mutual exchange as necessary.
