Doctoral Candidates

Although the IOS does support bachelor's and master's students through internships and the (co‑)supervision of final dissertations, the focus of its work in the promotion of young scholars lies in its measures to support doctoral candidates. The IOS employs doctoral candidates and integrates them into its research activities. Doctoral candidates from Germany and abroad who are not employed at the Institute are also given support in gaining scholarships for guest research stays at the IOS and in participating in projects at the Institute. The IOS organizes research colloquia, workshops for doctoral candidates, and summer schools for postgraduates. It also cooperates closely with the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies at the University of Regensburg and at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU Munich).

The following doctoral candidates are currently employed at the IOS:

  • Sandra Balck
  • Elia Bescotti: “Contested Sovereignties and Ontological in-Security in the post-Soviet Politics of International Law. Practices and Narratives of non-recognition between Georgia and Abkhazia, and Moldova and Transnistria”
  • Melanie Hien
  • Olha Martyniuk (scholarship holder and member of the Graduate School): "Soldaten der Roten Armee: Darstellungen und Wahrnehmungen in der Ukraine seit 1991"
