Application Process

There are two ways to apply for funded positions in DoCS.

1. Pooled Calls

There are pooled calls for open positions at the UniVie Doctoral School Computer Science every half year. The doctoral candidates selected in the two calls in one calendar year form a cohort of the doctoral school.


2. Open Positions

Positions that cannot be filled during the pooled calls will be opened in the meantime till the next call. Doctoral candidates hired this way will be placed in the cohort of the prior joint call. »See current open positions
