Vladimir Admoni Doctoral school in the German Department
Starting from January 1st the German Department of Tartu University runs its own doctoral school (Vladimir-Admoni-doctoral school) in cooperation with the Institute of German Philology at Georg-August-University of Göttingen supported by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).
Within the doctoral school up to six PhD-students get a scholarship for up to three years and have a second supervisor from Göttingen University (German Philology). The students and their supervisors will regularly visit Göttingen (up to 2 months a year); in addition to the scholarships and the research leaves a lot of activities will be organized at the German Department in Tartu, f.ex. colloquiua, workshops, conferences. The school is open for PhD-students who dedicate their research to German Literature, Language or Culture (not restricted in the narrower sense to students who write their Phd-thesis in the German department; beyond them PhD-students from Comparative and Estonian Literature, Estonian and General Linguistics, History, Theology, Philosophy, Folklore Studies etc. are welcome to apply).
