All doctoral candidates of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities who have been accepted at least provisionally as doctoral researchers are part of the Graduate Academy philGRAD. From this point on, they can participate free of charge in the qualification programmes of the Heine Research Academies (i.e. philGRAD, iGRAD and medRSD) and apply for travel grants for conferences and research stays.
Doctoral researchers who are doing their doctorate according to the doctoral regulations of Oct. 16, 2017 can take advantage of all offers of the Graduate Academy philGRAD and the Heine Research Academies at any time, but also with the form for provisional or final acceptance as a doctoral candidate. The prerequisite is that you have been accepted at least provisionally as a doctoral candidate at the Faculty of Humanities.
Doctoral researchers who are doing their doctorate according to the doctoral regulations of July 14, 2000 (with its amendments) can apply for admission at any time. Admission to philGRAD is accompanied by supervision by a team consisting of two to three members. Usually the doctoral supervisor is the first supervisor. In principle, full-time university lecturers from HHU can be members of the supervision team. The third, optional member of the philGRAD Supervision Team does not have to be employed at HHU. A supervision agreement and regular progress meetings provide a reliable and transparent framework for all those involved. In addition, a course in "Good Scientific Practice" is mandatory.
All Postdocs of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities can take part in the workshop and counselling offers of the graduate academy philGRAD. You also have the opportunity to take part in the JUNO qualification programs relevant to your target group, to apply for travel grants and to apply for the Academic Career Development Programme.
