The students and doctoral researchers build the heart of relAI. To ensure that the selected MSc students can fully concentrate on the offered training programs and their initial research activities, they receive a monthly scholarship of 934€, plus additional allowances for partners and children, for two years. Doctoral researchers are employed on 100% TV-L E13 for three years, ensuring a competitive salary in a highly contested job market. Besides the funded positions, it is also possible to become an associated relAI MSc or PhD student. If, for example, your field of research fits well with the topic of relAI, one of your supervisors is already a relAI fellow, and you have third-party funding, you can become an associated PhD or MSc. Associated MSc and PhDs complete the same curriculum and enjoy the same benefits.
Open positions for scholarships and doctoral researchers are announced on this website – we usually open calls for applications for doctoral researchers in fall/winter and a call for MSc applications in spring/summer.
