Various ways

Appli­ca­tion
There are various ways to apply for a fully funded doctoral position.

Ambitious young scien­tists have the oppor­tu­nity to do their doctor­ate with self-devel­oped research project in the working group of a Hector Fellow. For this, an innov­a­tive, self-devel­oped research topic has to be submit­ted, which the young scien­tist works on within the frame­work of the three-year doctoral phase at the insti­tute of the super­vis­ing Hector Fellow. It must be included in the appli­ca­tion, which Hector Fellow quali­fies as a super­vi­sor for your research idea.

Moreover, outstand­ing Master's gradu­ates can also apply for adver­tised doctoral positions of a Hector Fellow. By becom­ing a member of the Hector Fellow Academy, the young scien­tists become part of an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary network of top Researchers.

If you are already working in the research group of a Hector Fellow, you also have the possi­bil­ity to become part of the Hector Fellow Academy and benefit from its offers, provided you are not employed for more than 6 months. You can apply through the already metioned channels.
