The aim of the Hector Fellow Academy is to promote young researchers in the Hector Fellows' environment. The HFA PhD students are given the opportunity to benefit from the wealth of experience and outstanding expertise of their supervisor while building up a research network.
Every year, several PhD positions are funded by the HFA. Master graduates from all over the world can apply with a very good degree.
Ambitious young scientists have the opportunity to do their PhD with a self-developed research project in the working group of a Hector Fellow.
For this, an innovative, self-developed research topic has to be submitted, which the young scientist works on within the framework of the three-year doctoral phase at the institute of the supervising Hector Fellow. It must be included in the application which Hector Fellow qualifies as a supervisor for your research idea.
Moreover, outstanding Master's graduates can also apply for advertised PhD positions of a Hector Fellow. By becoming a member of the Hector Fellow Academy, the young scientists become part of an interdisciplinary network of top researchers.
The next application period starts in February 2019.
