Students will receive positions (75% TV-L E13, meaning ca. 1700€ net of taxes and social security dependent on personal circumstances). Students will be employees of the Free State of Bavaria, Germany, and covered by the mandatory social security in Germany, i.e. health insurance, unemployment insurance, retirement insurance, and superannuation scheme of German retirement fund for federal and state employees (for the latter an application for exemption is possible).
For the first two years, these positions are funded by the Elite Network of Bavaria. Continuation funding until completion of the doctoral degree will then be provided by the students' supervisors.
Additionally, all students will be provided with
- office space
- work stations
- relevant computer programs
- office material
Students teach, on average, two hours per semester. We ensure that the courses they teach focus on methods and substantive areas that are closely related to the EBE paradigm and the graduate program’s research program.
Moreover, the graduate program has ample resources to provide:
- Travel support for conferences, exchange visits, and summer schools
- Seed funding for research studies
- Support for language courses, specific affirmative action activities, and presentation, communication, and soft skill courses.
- Funding for services of professional language lectors
