The grants are meant to enable PhD candidates with an interest in Information Structure to carry out some of their research in the Collaborative Research Centre.

How to apply:
Interested candidates are invited to send their electronic applications, including:
- Master's degree or equivalent (scan);
- a curriculum vitae (CV);
- a short sketch of the planned dissertation project (1-2 pages);
- an accompanying letter outlining the candidates' motivation for applying at the collaborative research
centre.
All applications should be mailed to the coordinator of the integrated graduate school Anja Gollrad
at agollradgooglemail.com
Candidates should also indicate one or two projects that they want to be affiliated with.
