Doctoral Program at the ZfL

Doctoral candidates at the ZfL receive fellowships from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with funds from its research program budget. The dissertation projects all correspond to the ZfL’s own research areas in fields such as the history of science, literary studies, and cultural studies. Currently, there are no funding opportunities available for doctoral students. The ZfL does however host candidates with projects that are funded by outside grants.

Dissertation advisors

Several researchers at the ZfL are qualified to advise doctoral theses regardless of the candidate’s institutional or financial affiliation. Their academic rank allows them to serve as either primary advisors or committee members.
