Doc.Service is the point of contact for all questions relating to the doctoral studies at the University of Klagenfurt.
Our aims are:
to help doctoral students successfully complete their doctoral programme,
to help and encourage applicants to choose and plan their doctoral programme,
and to help the university to ensure the quality of its doctoral programmes.
These aims are achieved through the following measures:
continuing education and career coaching,
quality assurance through support, advice, networking, cooperation,
bundling of existing services and support,
enhancing the transparency of the offer and requirements for doctoral students.
Funding and awards offered by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW)
In May 2019, Dr. Barbara Haberl (Austrian Academy of Sciences, ÖAW) accepted an invitation to speak about the fellowships and awards offered by the Austrian Academy of Sciences for pre- and post-doc researchers. We are planning to organize a similar event in the winter term 2019/20. The exact date will be announced here. If you have any questions concerning the funding offered by the ÖAW, please contact Dr. Maren Kreutler, Doc.Services.
As member of the Young-Scientists-Mentoring-Programme at AAU, students receive guidance and advice for a fixed period of time from an experienced researcher in a relevant scientific community at another research Institute.
The Young Researchers Think Tank is a working group overseen by the Vice-Rector for Research which deals with career progression for young researchers.
