Doctoral Fellowships in "The Vienna Doctoral School of Physics"

The Vienna Doctoral School in Physics, VDS Physics, offers internationally competitive doctoral training across the key research areas of the Faculty of Physics at the University of Vienna. 

In 2016 UniPhyDocs was granted by the Rectorate of the University of Vienna to unify best practice models into a common frame work for the selection, training, monitoring and mentoring of the most promising young scientist in our fields.

In the VDS Physics we strive to generate added value by bringing together bright minds from complementary fields. 

The VDS faculty unites those research group leaders who are committed to excellence in research and to fostering the growth of research personalities, also by offering paid research opportunities in this program.  

The VDS fellows are selected according to their academic excellence, scientific achievements, expected potential for future research as well as their commitment to contribute to the scientific goals and the student driven activities in the school, independent of gender, race, religion or nationality. Doctoral fellows admitted to the VDS Physics have a regular employment at the University of Vienna. The VDS Physics will also provide support for travel, networking and soft skill Trainings.

Deadline for applications: December 11, 2017
