PhD in Network Science Fellowship Programme 2021 at the Central European University (CEU)
Central European University (CEU) opens five fellowships for its PhD in network Science. The PhD program in Network Science is a research-oriented program that provides the only PhD degree in this field in Europe. Network science provides essential tools to study complex systems including society online and offline, the economy or urban traffic.
Accordingly, the program provides hands-on experience with large datasets characterizing those systems and the skills needed to analyze them. At the same time, network science is a rapidly developing new discipline with ample opportunities to do fundamental research. Within the PhD program there are possibilities to carry out research either in applied or in theoretical-methodological directions.
IMPORTANT: Shortlisted applicants should be available for online interviews in the week of March 8-12, 2021.
Program length: 3-6 years
Type of degree: CEU
CEU credits: 90
ECTS credits: 180.00
Start of the program: September
Central European University (CEU) Entry Requirements for the Doctoral Program (Program-Specific Requirements)
Apart from general CEU admission requirements, we expect applications from candidates with a Master’s degree in one of a broad range of related disciplines (including physics, mathematics, computer science, sociology, political science and economics), who have an interest in network science and/or its applications.
The PhD program is open for students with a wide variety of backgrounds. Presently we have students with MA/MSc in math, physics, sociology, psychology, architecture, economics and political science. The Program is strongly interdisciplinary with a special emphasis on quantitative methods and data-oriented research. Those who have weaker math backgrounds will have to participate in a pre-session course and will need some additional effort.
