After hav­ing re­ceived your mas­ter's de­gree, you might con­sider con­tinu­ing your aca­demic stud­ies by do­ing your PhD. Please bear in mind that the scope of a doc­toral thesis dif­fers con­sid­er­ably from that of a mas­ter's thesis.

The WU of­fers a doc­toral pro­gramm in So­cial Science and Eco­nom­ics. You will find in­form­a­tion on WU's doc­toral stud­ies here. The min­imum dur­a­tion of the doc­toral pro­gram is six semesters. However, IMM stu­dents usu­ally re­quire eight semesters on aver­age. This is basic­ally due to the com­plex­ity res­ult­ing from the in­ter­na­tional scope of em­pir­ical re­search.

As only full and as­so­ci­ate pro­fess­ors are are al­lowed to su­per­vise a doc­toral thesis, please ad­dress them dir­ectly with your re­search pro­posal. You should check the re­search in­terest of the in­di­vidual pro­fess­ors and our in­sti­tute's re­search fo­cus in ad­vance to en­sure a fit between your re­search pro­posal and our re­search fo­cus.

There are dif­fer­ent ways to com­plete a PhD with our in­stitue; either you work as re­search and teach­ing assist­ants at the IMM or you com­plete your PhD as an ex­ternal PhD stu­dent (hav­ing your own fund­ing). You will find fur­ther in­form­a­tion on open pos­i­tions at the IMM on the WU web­site un­der "Jobs".

On our Stu­dent's Plat­form un­der "PhD" you will find cur­rent in­form­a­tion with regard to PhD courses our in­sti­tute of­fers within the total of­fer of courses for PhD stu­dents.
