ESA-announce DFG Graduate School “Information Management and Market Engineering" offers Doctoral Scholarships

Posted on 2011/06/14. Filed under: 管理, 綜合, 資訊 | 標籤:, , |

Graduate School “Information Management and Market Engineering” offers Doctoral Scholarships at the Graduate School (Graduiertenkolleg) “Information Management and Market Engineering” to applicants with an interest in the School’s interdisciplinary research focus on electronic markets and services.

The Graduate School is a joint program by the departments of economics, business administration, computer science, and law of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), formerly Universität Karlsruhe (TH). Alongside their PhD research, scholars attend relevant courses and carry out joint research in the framework of an interdisciplinary seminar. The working language within the School is English, and theses may be written in either English or German.

Financed by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft – DFG), the scholarships amount to € 1.468,-
per month for 30 months; in addition research and travel funds and – if applicable – teaching funds will be provided. Depending on a
student’s academic background and research topic, the degree of Dr. rer. pol., Dr. rer. nat., Dr.-Ing., or Dr. iur. (the latter in cooperation with the law faculty of Universität Freiburg) may be awarded.

Both current PhD students and alumni have appreciated the interdisciplinary nature of the Graduate School. Recent research of members of the Graduate School covers, for example, the role of news in financial markets, auction-based approaches to controlling traffic flows, the trade-off between privacy and efficiency in electricity markets, as well as both technical and economic questions related to the next generation internet. A large share of students has an international background. Having completed their PhD, alumni of the School have shown to be successful both in industry and academia and have built a strong network within and beyond the Graduate School.

Successful candidates will have an excellent academic record, including an advanced degree in one of the aforementioned disciplines,
be fluent in English, and show a strong interest in interdisciplinary work. The university is committed to increasing the share of women in research and especially encourages female candidates to apply. Scholarships commence from October 2011 onwards; the date of entry may be deferred in both directions for a limited period.

Further information on the Graduate School and the application process is available at Electronic
applications should be submitted to applications(at) by June 23rd, 2011. Interviews will be held on July 11th, 2011.
