Doctorates make a significant and fundamental contribution to research by the WSL. They are based on research projects that are carried out independently, with the supervision of a professor.
The core facet of a doctorate is the acquisition of in-depth scientific expertise by making a major contribution to research. The development of specialist, methodological and interdisciplinary knowledge and skills as well as scientific socialisation and networking form central objectives of a doctorate.
Further information is described in detail in the guide to doctoral studies.
