The German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA) / Leibniz-Institut für Globale und Regionale Studien is an independent Social Science research institute based in Hamburg. It analyses political, social, and economic developments in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East to address questions of local and global significance. It combines region-specific analysis with innovative comparative research on accountability and participation, globalisation and development, peace and security, and global order and foreign policies. The GIGA Doctoral Programme (DP) invites applications from externally / self-funded
Prospective Doctoral Researchers
to join the programme starting 1 October 2023. The DP offers an institutional setting that allows doctoral researchers to conduct independent research on topics of real-world relevance, engage in academic debates, and acquire key skills for a successful academic career. GIGA doctoral researchers are fully integrated into the institute’s research structure and benefit from close supervision and tailored training within an international research environment. Through academic exchanges and fieldwork, they engage with the “GIGA regions” and build their own networks. Doctoral degrees will be awarded by one of our partner universities, dependent upon the affiliation of the doctoral researcher’s supervisor.
We strongly welcome international applications. Diversity and the reconciliation of work and family life are of great importance to the institute. The GIGA promotes the equality of all genders. Additionally, we actively encourage applications from persons with disabilities.
