Giessen University’s International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture (GCSC), co-funded by the German federal government’s Excellence Initiative, offers a three-year, structured PhD-programme in the study of culture.
The GCSC supports young researchers with families: appointees with children under the age of twelve are eligible for renewals of up to four years.
The University of Giessen, officially called Justus Liebig University Giessen, is a large public research university in Giessen, Hesse, Germany.
Applicants must obtain a first or upper second class honours M.A. degree (or the equivalent). The GCSC’s working languages are German and English, and applicants must be fluent in at least one of them; knowledge of both is an advantage and should be acquired during the scholarship period.
