Graduate studies require some funding from scholarships, research grants, commercial projects, and external jobs. Funding is different depending on whether you are a student from Germany or abroad. Here are some possible funding sources:
Generally, in order to receive funding for a Ph.D. position from DAAD, the university, or some other source, you need to work out a Ph.D. research proposal with your prospective Ph.D. advisor. Please see the information about Ph.D. proposals at Ph.D. Information. Writing a Ph.D. proposal is a significant undertaking and you should leave about six weeks time prior to the application / submission deadline.
In addition to funded projects, there are some other opportunities for research in IUPR. We can hire some students, including Ph.D. students, for a combination of teaching and Ph.D. research. Generally, this requires the ability to teach and interact with students in German. We can also host a limited number of DAAD postdocs and Ph.D. students; such positions are dependent on writing a joint research statement and proposal to the DAAD. B.A. and M.A. students already at the University of Kaiserslautern are always welcome to apply for HiWi positions, projects, and thesis projects in our lab.
Areas of interest for these non-project related positions are, among others:
