BAGSS is a multidisciplinary Graduate School funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) as part of the German Excellence Initiative. We are seeking to stimulate and guide cutting-edge doctoral research on some of the most crucial challenges modern know­ledge-based societies are facing. 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.
