PhD Scholarships in cooperation with the PIER Helmholtz Graduate School
Since the beginning of 2013, the PIER Helmholtz Graduate School (PHGS) is the umbrella structure of doctoral training of DESY and Universität Hamburg in the research fields particle and astroparticle physics, photon science, nanoscience, infection and structural biology.
The PHGS stands for the "E" in PIER, the „Partnership for Innovation, Education and Research“ of Universität Hamburg and DESY. Within the framework of the PHGS, the Joachim Herz Stiftung awards full scholarships to outstanding young scientists. The foundation supports 16 young researchers from India, Nepal, China, Greece, Turkey, Poland and Germany who have succeeded in a multistage selection procedure.
In addition to a monthly allowance, the scholarship provides grants for initial requirements and language courses as well as funds for participation in international conferences, stays at a research lab and for jointly organizing a PhD workshop.
