How to Apply
Is your doctoral project positioned at the intersection between technology and society? Are you interested in an exchange between the social sciences, humanities and the STEM disciplines? Would you like to draw on the expertise of science and technology studies? If so, then the MCTS and its Integrative Graduate Center TechnoScienceStudies can offer you an inspiring environment for your research and your academic qualifications.
The MCTS has an interdisciplinary orientation and is well-connected with all other departments at TUM. For this reason, doctoral candidates come from various fields and work on different subject areas. Doctoral candidates work and study under the umbrella of TechnoScienceStudies, which aims to advance research on and with technoscientific fields.
We welcome applications from doctoral candidates:
- who are working or would like to work on a topic that reflects the research agenda of the MCTS and can be supervised at the institute,
- who are pursuing their doctorate in departments or in research groups at TUM that are associated with the MCTS, and/or
- who would like to enroll in doctoral education and training at the MCTS – either with scholarship funding or as a doctoral candidate from another institution seeking supervision with an MCTS faculty member.
Depending on the subject-specific focus of the doctoral project, candidates can pursue any of the doctoral degrees awarded at TUM. The MCTS itself awards the following academic titles: Dr. phil., Dr. rer. pol., Dr. rer. soc., and Dr. oec. publ.
