BAGSS is a multidisciplinary Graduate School funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) as part of the German Excellence Initiative.

Specialised research agendas have been grouped into four thematic pillars:

  • Pillar 1   Education, personal development and learning from early childhood to adulthood
  • Pillar 2   Education and social inequality across the entire life course
  • Pillar 3   Changes in human capital, labour markets and demographic structures and their
    impact on social inequality in modern societies
  • Pillar 4   Governance, institutional change and political behaviour

Qualification and requirements:

We are inviting applications from highly qualified graduates from the fields of Sociology, Psy­cho­logy, Educational Science, Political Science, Economics, Demography and Statistics. Qua­lified graduates of related subjects with a strong background in the empirical social sciences are also encouraged to apply. Candidates must hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in one of the aforementioned subjects or be very close to completion. Successful applicants will be re­quired to take up their residence in Bamberg, a city noted for its very high quality of life as well as great conditions for research and study.

Remuneration for the doctoral fellowships is based on Grade E 13 TV-L (50%) of the German Public Service Salary Scale. There is a teaching obligation of two hours per week for only one semester during the three years. Holders of the doctoral scholarships receive a monthly stipend of 1.365 Euro, plus family allowances and child-care expenses in accordance with the DFG guidelines where applicable.

The Graduate School is committed to diversity, equal opportunities and the compatibility of fa­mi­ly and career. It therefore explicitly encourages applications from women. As an in­ter­na­tio­nal research institution, the School particularly welcomes applications from abroad. Applicants with disabilities possessing essentially equivalent qualifications will receive preferential con­si­deration.

Scholarship Master in Economics and Management of Network Industries

  • From November 1st 2013 to January 15th 2014.
  • Students applying without scholarship: To be open in February..

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO START SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION

The liberalization and regulation of network industries and infrastructures across the world creates a need for industries and public institutions to hire skilled professionals capable of understanding these processes and participating actively in their management and regulation.

The EMIN Joint Master Programme offers the opportunity to acquire expertise in the management of network industries from a global perspective that covers both economic/regulatory and technological/management issues. In these industries, teaching, training and research are typically carried out solely by focused specialists, which usually results in a skewed perspective. The purpose of this Master is to continue integrating specialists from different backgrounds and nationalities, and to make them interact in an interdisciplinary program so as to address the main problems faced by network industries in the current context of economic crisis and environmental concern. Our master students will learn the relevant engineering, economics, policy and management principles that should guide the functioning of network and infrastructure industries with a special focus on the energy and electrical power sector. Throughout the master, students will apply these skills and knowledge to solve real-life problems, since this course is dedicated to training qualified professionals.

This Master Programme is awarded jointly by some of the most prestigious European universities. First line American and Asian universities and research institutes are also part of the programme consortium.

The EMIN Joint Master Programme was awarded in 2006 the Erasmus Mundus excellence label by the European Commission. This award was renewed for another 5 years in 2010. Therefore, scholarships granted by the European Commission will be available both for EMIN students and visiting professors during the forthcoming years. The Erasmus Mundus excellence label has only been granted so far to 126 Masters and 34 doctorates in all disciplines and Universities across Europe. Comillas also coordinates the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate in Sustainable Energy Technologies and Strategies (SETS Joint Doctorate).

The Erasmus Mundus programme aims to enhance quality in higher education through scholarships and academic cooperation between Europe and the rest of the world.

Added Value

The EMIN Joint Master Programme has an advantage over existing programmes in the added value stemming from its partners’ joint expertise, the relevance of the subjects addressed, the participation of supporting industries and institutions, and the target of offering a joint degree once legal obstacles and national legislation so allow. All these advantages ensure an impact on European competitiveness in this area, and the development of cutting-edge education and collaboration between the academic and the industrial worlds. This added value of the EMIN Joint Master Programme can be summarized in the following points: international component, renowned partners, interdisciplinary approach, industry connection, experience gained in the management of this programme, and research career opportunities.
