Doctoral Opportunities

Opportunities for PhD students

There may be doctoral opportunities at UNU-EHS, in collaboration with a wide range of international universities.

PhD students are usually integrated in ongoing research projects at UNU-EHS and are free to select a corresponding university internationally. Upon graduation, students are awarded a doctoral degree by their supporting international university.

Doctoral opportunities at UNU-EHS provide future leaders in the field of environment and human security with the analytical tools necessary for analysing the different dimensions of vulnerability and risk, ecosystem services and migration issues, while focusing on the unique characteristics and challenges of developing countries. PhD project positions are internationally advertised, and can be found under Careers.
