Open PhD Theses

Below you find descriptions of open PhD theses within the Graduate School. They are ordered according to the Research Foci (R1-R9) and the Cross-sectional Areas (C1-C4). For each thesis you can download a PDF page which provides a short overview of the project and lists the supervisors. General requirements for working on a PhD project are: – a keen interest in exploring challenging research problems in the specific area, – very high dedication to the job and creativity in problem solving, good English language skills. Further subject related requirements may be stated within the description of the PhD thesis.
