About

During the International Doctorate for Experimental Approaches to Language and Brain programme from University of Potsdam, candidates primarily carry out a comprehensive scientific research project within the research programme of the consortium, i.e. on cross-linguistic and multilingual issues in connection with the relation between brain and language. 

Overview

The candidates for International Doctorate for Experimental Approaches to Language and Brain programme from University of Potsdam will be advised and counselled by two supervisors while working on their dissertations.

 The first supervisor will come from the home university, the second supervisor from a partner university, an associated member university or an associated member from R&D industries. 

The first supervisor holds a professorship and comes from the home university, the second supervisor holds at least a PhD and comes from a partner university.

Supervision

On the basis of their preferred topics and background, doctoral candidates are assigned to a participating university which is his/her home university. Doctoral candidates are members of the graduate school of this home university. 

Here they have a first supervisor who is responsible for both the organisation and the quality of the research project. Each doctoral candidate has a second supervisor from one of the other participating institutions, either another full partner or an associated institution. Supervision is therefore always joint in nature.
