The Kühne Logistics University (KLU) is offering 5 scholarships sponsored by the Kuehne Foundation for the four-year KLU PhD program. At KLU you will work with open and ambitious colleagues in an international, multicultural atmosphere at an attractive HafenCity location. KLU’s PhD program is a unique program in training academics to be future thought leaders. The program consists of independent research under the supervision of two academic supervisors. Course work is required that is tailored to the specific focal research area of the student. Applications need to include the background (statement of purpose, CV, references, evidence of English proficiency), excellence portfolio (list of degrees and indicators of university, program, and individual excellence), and personal fit including a research statement (maximum two pages) and a short personal video. Candidates need to nominate two KLU faculty members as supervisors.
Review of submissions will start as soon as they receive the files and will continue until all 5 scholarships have been awarded. Awardees will be selected in monthly rounds, with the first set of decisions made in early March. Positions for project-funded positions remain open until they are filled.
