The a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School at the University of Cologne is offering an opportunity to pursue a doctorate through a structured doctoral model of intensive supervision and interdisciplinary research, via eight “predoc” scholarships for the preparation of a doctoral dissertation project and up to six Mercator scholarships for a practice- and profession-oriented doctorate. Applications are due by May 6, 2022.

The purpose of the “Predoc” scholarship is to enable candidates to begin working towards a doctorate at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Cologne immediately after obtaining their qualifying degree. The scholarship holders are supported for one semester during which they are able to develop a doctoral project with a specific focus on interdisciplinary aspects.

The Mercator-scholarship supports doctoral projects regarding the exchange between science and society and an implemented practice-oriented subject. The innovative program focusses on the contribution of the humanities to actual societal topics and central aspects of practice-oriented research. The integration of a one-year practical phase within the dissertation aims at the fruitful interactions and synergy effects of academic and non-academic transfer. Mercator fellows partake in the structured doctoral program “Integrated Track“ at the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School.

Seeking to bridge the disciplinary divide between the humanities and the natural sciences, a.r.t.e.s. focuses on the complex intersections between language, history, culture, mediality, anthropology, and ethics.
