Doctoral Program

Doctoral Studies in Inequality Research

Doctoral Researchers of the Cluster enrol in the Graduate School of the Social and Behavioural Sciences (GSBS), which was established by the University of Konstanz in conjunction with its two Clusters of Excellence to bring together researchers from eight disciplines: Biology, Economics, Linguistics, Politics and Public Administration, Physics, Psychology, Sociology, and Statistics. The GSBS offers an Inequality Specialization as one of three elective interdisciplinary specializations (Collective Behavior, Decision Sciences, and Inequality). 

The Inequality Specialization focuses on providing doctoral students with cross-disciplinary training linked to the Cluster's specific research fields, agendas, and methodologies. It investigates inequality in areas such as education, income and wealth, and participation rights. It thus prepares young researchers for an increasingly interdisciplinary job market while simultaneously contributing to cutting-edge research on the topic of inequality within various fields of research.
