A successful application is necessary for admission to the IMPRS-SHH. PhD students are usually offered an employment contract with the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History or FSU. There is a supervision agreement between every PhD student and her/his main supervisors. This is necessary for the next step: the admission as a doctoral candidate of a “Fakultät” of FSU (see below). Each PhD student has to decide from which “Fakultät” he/she wants to receive her/his degree. At least one of her/his supervisors must belong to or be connected with this Fakultät. Please note: The English versions of the doctoral regulations (“Promotionsordnung”) are for your information only. The legal basis is the original German text.
- “Fakultät” of Arts – Promotionsordnung
- “Fakultät” of Biological Sciences – Promotionsordnung
- “Fakultät” of Chemistry and Earth Sciences – Promotionsordnung
- “Fakultät” of Social and Behavioural Sciences – Promotionsordnung (no official English version available. Please ask the coordinators).
PhD students apply for the admission to a particular “Fakultät” via Doc-in. Doc-in is the online registration system for doctoral candidates at FSU.
PhD students of the IMPRS-SHH can but are not required to enroll at FSU. Enrolment is not compulsory, but it offers a whole range of advantages, cf. here.
