Doing a doctorate is a time-consuming task and requires high commitment. Therefore funding becomes an essential prerequisite so that you can focus on your research. In addition, funding costs for consumables and specific equipment or travel grants might be necessary to perform your research. However, funding schemes are limited and being enrolled as a doctoral/PhD candidate at the University of Vienna does not automatically imply a financed research position.

Usually, funding has to be organised by the doctoral candidate him/herself. Therefore, we recommend to inform yourself about fellowship programmes or open PhD possitions before starting the admission process.
