Each doctoral researcher will be supervised by two professors from different faculties and will benefit from our Doctoral Researcher Development Programme.

Depending on the project selected and own qualifications students may receive a scholarship and may be eligible to register for one of the doctoral degrees offered at the Justus Liebig University Giessen
