Joint PhD opportunities
We are currently recruiting joint PhD candidates to join the Jülich-University of Melbourne Postgraduate Academy. Each supervisory team oversees a pair of joint PhD projects on related, but separate research topics. One project’s home institution is the University of Melbourne and the other home institution is the Forschungszentrum Jülich and its affiliate universities. Currently, these universities include RWTH Aachen, the University of Wuppertal, the University of Bonn, the University of Cologne, and HHU Düsseldorf.
Candidates spend a minimum of 12 months at both universities, providing a multidisciplinary cohort experience with other Jülich-University of Melbourne Postgraduate Academy joint PhD candidates.
Joint PhD candidates will benefit from the collective resources, networks and expertise of supervisors at the University of Melbourne and the Forschungszentrum Jülich. Funding for each candidate will include tuition fees, a full living allowance (stipend), health insurance and travel allowance. At the successful completion of the program, each candidate will be eligible to receive a PhD, recognised by testamurs from each of the two universities.
