PhD / research offers for European collaboration
CIVICA unites the research communities of eight leading European universities. Our aim is to create an integrated European research space in the social sciences and humanities, built upon shared resources, facilities and pools of expertise.
Through various joint initiatives and opportunities, CIVICA enables doctoral fellows and researchers to exchange on ongoing research, advance their professional and methods skills, team up for collaborative projects, and network with colleagues working on similar topics.
CIVICA's offers at (post)doctoral level include the Early Stage Researcher course catalogue, summer schools, and methods and skills workshops.
