Academic career and PhD

Whether it is part of your academic career or a stepping stone to a managerial position outside the university: choosing doctoral studies is a major decision.

For questions regarding academic careers and doctorates you will find support at the Academic Staff Development (ASD) of the University of Konstanz.

All information about doctoral studies at the University of Konstanz is also summarised for you at the Konstanz Research School (KRS).

If you are still unsure whether you should do a doctorate and would also like to find out about your options for direct entry into the job market, we, the Career Service, will be happy to support you. Even during and after your doctorate, you can get advice about your alternatives to an academic career and participate in our events at any time.
