With the support of the  Österreich-Fonds on 21 February 2018 the FWF started the second call for applications in the doc.funds-programme.

doc.funds is a programme to promote outstanding doctoral programmes and to consolidate existing education and training structures for highly qualified junior researchers. Applicants can request additional funding for any structured doctoral programme that has been in operation for at least two years. The university (or universities) offering the programme must be clearly committed to providing basic funding, that is, providing all of the necessary infrastructure as well as funds for the o-going operation and institutional anchoring of the programme.

The application must be completed in writing and is to be submitted by e-mail (birgit.woitech(at); no scanned files, please) and on paper with original signatures and stamps along with files on a data storage device. The submission deadline is 14 May 2018 (date of postmark).

In order to enable international peer review, all applications are to be submitted in English.
