Academic Career at the THGA

The THGA encourages and supports young scientists at different stages of their career: Prospective doctoral candidates, doctoral students and postdocs.

As a central contact point, the Research Management offers individual advice and a PhD Students Seminar for doctoral students. Our young scientists are also supported by the ProF@THGA project.

Doctoral studies at the THGA

The THGA offers two options for the promotion of young scientists: On the one hand, there is the possibility of a cooperative doctorate in cooperation with universities with their own right to award doctorates. On the other hand, it is possible to do a doctorate at the THGA in cooperation with the Promotionskolleg Nordrhein-Westfalen with the acquired right to award doctorates.

Promotionskolleg NRW

The Promotionskolleg NRW is a scientific institution of 21 universities of applied sciences in North Rhine-Westphalia. It was founded in 2020 with the higher education policy mission of strengthening and further expanding cooperative doctoral programs together with the universities. At the same time, the PK NRW creates the conditions for doctoral studies at universities of applied sciences under their own doctoral law.

PhD Students Seminar

The doctoral degree is the foundation of an academic career. In order to provide our doctoral students with the best possible support on their career path, the PhD Students Seminar has been established.

It provides structured support for THGA PhD students before, during and after their doctoral studies. As part of this structure, networking events, doctoral training and interdisciplinary qualification programs are offered.

To ensure the visibility of the group, two spokespersons are elected to represent the interests of the doctoral students as an official voice.

The PhD student spokespersons are Julia Haske and Myo Thiri Kyaw.
