The WSL sees its commitment to the training of doctoral researchers as an investment in the future that benefits both doctoral students as well as the WSL.
The aim here is to allow doctoral researchers to concentrate fully on their own project and complete their dissertation successfully. Dissertation projects should preferably fall under the core fields of research of the WSL.
To ensure academically rigorous supervision, it is advisable for doctoral students to participate in the current research projects of the WSL. Doctoral students will be integrated into research projects and up to 20% of their time will be given over to providing services for the institute.
Doctoral posts have a tenure of 3 years in total.
