Thank you for your interest in the doctoral degree (PhD) opportunities at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities!

On these websites we would like to provide you with information on all topics related to pursuing a PhD at our faculty.

Have you graduated with a good or very good Master’s degree (or equivalent)? Are you passionate about your field and interested in delving into it with a more specialized focus? Does the thought of scientific research and academic writing pique your interest?

You meet all the requirements of a potential PhD candidate!

Our faculty holds promoting junior researchers as one of its most important tasks. Therefore, we have created a (hopefully) comprehensive consulting service. We look forward to hearing from you!

You will find all websites related to pursuing a PhD via the blue navigation bar on the top of the page.

This checklist might help you when you first start to plan your PhD.


There will be a second installment of the event for information and discussion concerning the WissZeitVG (German law on fixed-term contracts in academia) on 14.07.2021 from 4-6pm. As invited experts, Jörg Schröder from the GEW and Gerd Richter from the WPR will be present. Please register at gradf(at)kw.uni-paderborn(dot)de!
