Currently, there is no staff member employed at the Viadrina Center for Graduate Studies. The vacancy of one post will be filled as soon as possible.

At the moment, the VCGS cannot provide scholarships and grants (to cover traveling costs, for publications, for conferences etc.) due to the end of the funding period resulting from the objective agreement with the state of Brandenburg.

Further courses within the key qualifications’ programme for doctoral researchers, postdocs and students interested in pursuing a doctoral degree are being planned for the summer term 2019.
