Finding a Supervisor

If you are interested in individual doctoral studies you are usually expected to find a supervisor (Doktorvater/Doktormutter) for your intended doctoral project by yourself. If you are interested in joining a doctoral program, please inform yourself on the website of the respective program about the application requirements and deadlines.
