Last year we celebrated four decades of top-notch computer science, now we are ready for the next 40 years. Saarbrücken not only has a long tradition in informatics but is also recognized as one of the prime locations for computer science research in Germany and Europe today offering a perfect research environment for the top researchers of tomorrow.
To enable you to get your own impression we are happy to be able to share a new short video (in English) made for us by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The video is available here and gives a good idea of the goals and spirit of the Saarbrücken Graduate School of Computer Science.
Are some of your Bachelor or Master students looking for close collaboration with dynamic faculty members in an excellent international research environment at the crossroads of European culture?
Saarbrücken is their place to be. We offer a doctoral program in English supported by the German Excellence Initiative. The Department of Computer Science at Saarland University runs the Graduate School in close cooperation with the internationally renowned research institutions:
- Max Planck Institute for Informatics
- Max Planck Institute for Software Systems
- German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI)
all located in immediate proximity to each other on our Saarbrücken campus. This unique research environment gives our Ph.D. candidates the chance to collaborate with some 200 researchers at the postdoctoral or professorial level and over 250 doctoral students, covering virtually all areas of computer science.
Applicants should hold or be about to finish a Masters or an excellent Bachelor`s degree in computer science or in a related field. Doctoral candidates receive attractive scholarships and funding in all stages of the graduate program, which comfortably cover the moderate cost of living in Saarbrücken.
The upcoming application deadline for entering the Graduate School in October 2011 is: April 29, 2011.
Please feel free to forward this information to anyone who might be interested in applying and don`t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.
